Well, this is one of the reasons I couldn't head down to Eden, we have money tied up in other cars at the moment(selling them off), and rego plus stamp duty temporarily drained my fighting fund! We had been looking for a car at auction, and this one came up last weekend, do you know how long I had to wait for a non white or silver fleet car to come through! No way I was buying another boring coloured car. The fiance is very happy, as she is the one who drives it the most. I really like driving it too! :twisted: Anyone who hasn't driven the last of the Magnas, and thinks the rumours about Magnas are true, owes it to themselves to give one a spin! They are amazingly cheap for what you get. Ours is a "base model" and has ABS, traction crontrol ,four airbags, climate control, cruise control, a really good stock stereo etc etc. The wheels came off our old Magna, and I had the tinting done. They handle exceptionally well, and you really have to push hard to find hints of it being a front drive car. The ride quality and quietness of the cabin is particulalry impressive, superior to Commodores and Falcons of the same year. I would also say the handling is more taut then either of these two(comparing base model cars here), particularly over rough roads, where the real independent rear suspension works well (never liked Holden's quasi IRS, too much camber/toe change). Power to spare, at least as quick as the Falcodore sixes off the line, maybe a little quicker when moving. Not bad for 2 years old, 31k kms and $15k flat. Regards, Andrew.
