He failed to mention the buggered rear end.

Buggered rear end Alison?
This is a car with uprated suspension as standard.
We are not talking foreign tat here.

It has uprated suspension to make it handle better (apparently they
handle quite well, not that I'd care to find out) not to assist it in
towing over a metric tonne. As for 'foreign tat' I call either

a) Troll
b) Comedian

It's an old Honda design. Not bad in it's day. Then Rover started
building it badly, bolting on plastic, and upping the BHP. They *are*
quite quick. They *do* handle OK, but there's no escaping what they are.

The only 'foreign tat' recycling 20 year old designs have the decency to
sell them cheap, while MG/Rover continued to delude themselves that they
were a premium brand a cut above the likes of Ford or GM.

Do you want to go 50/50 on that one or ask the audience?
