    Spoke to a mate who has one at the weekend he is really happy with it. Works well off road, cheap and solidly build with very good warrantees.

    Funny enough I was looking at the ad yesterday. I haven't seen one yet but as it is chinese I would imagine that cheap is the main point. for a reason. But if you don't use them harshly then it could be a reasonably buy. Just don't expect strong residules.
    I can speak in-depth and with great knowledge about most subjects until some bugger who actually knows what he is speaking about opens his gob .

    I looked at them at the Anglian show on Saturday, I thought they looked quite small and I dont think they are sturdy enough. Spec looks good, 6 speed box and just under 17000 with vat but I think I will stick to the better known models. Possibly in a few years if they prove me wrong I might look again, but I doubt it.

    Maybe they are just priced to sell rather than make the company billions in profit. I read somewhere they use mitsubishi engines and siemens electronic systems.

    Does anyone have first hand experience?.... i.e. own one, or driven one?
