hi Richard,

No problem..It is only a small mistake!!! At least I know there is 3
spokes steering in 03/04 model.. By the way, tested the car with
wookies..mmm.. the feeling was good..I can say the suspension are still
doing well, it is quite comfort even with 17 inches, low profile
tyre..didn't hear any noise when go thru the hump and uneven road.. only
some friction noise noticed from the front tire when braking.. the engine
idling, pick up and gear shifting is goood tooo..Really got poisoned...

After hearing from your comments, I didn't make any decision today though
I like the car..as the used car still maintain the price at 118K .. and
trade in my waja with only 35K..he seem not interested to discuss the
deal..Probably the owner is true, he absorbed the car at high cost
initially..Probably 115K..so he doesn't want to let go below 118K
eventhough paying the interest monthly..the car was there about 5 months,
if he still keep it, I believe he will loose more..:-)..

Anyway, just check out with SM..there is another one 03/04 might be
looking for new owner..The milage done only below 10K..but according to
the SA..the price will be higher than market price due to the low
milage..yet to confirmed by the SA..

...Couldn't sleep tonite I believe...will have to do more mathematic
tonite...Anyway, thanks for the sharing...Will be seeing u in coming TT..

Good to known you like the car.... but again like i say before DONT
HURRY, LOOK FOR THE BEST...but if you really like the car so much
and the best way is call him every days to negeotiate with him and
stand firm on yout price until he give more discount as a friend did the
same to got her the V40 as well.....

The car we tested today feels so good that I was tempted to trade my car!
Hahaha....but the newer version definately feels more comfortable and easy
to drive.

I noticed that the door hinges is kind of creaking even for such new car.
Could be worse than my 6 years junk. The other thing is that the rear end
has a slight gap between the body and bumper (viewed after opening the
back lid). The 17" TRW rims r not cool. But 4 holes 17" not easy to get
probably...the interior is not on tip-top condition, many scratches and
