What to Expect

Custom version of the CD, even slower and less frugal but better build quality, allowing a few to survive into the nineties. Handling is vague at the front end and loose at the back, but it’s so light and slow that it’s easy to grin and bear it. Motors run to as much as 35k without serious problems, after that expect camchain, valve and gearbox hassles. Vibes, smoke and top end rattles most obvious signs of engine demise.
