Italian car! :lovegrin:

I have also gotten an italian car... but I poorer... did not get the Serpent... got the Scorpion instead.

The high revving Italian engines put a big smile on my face...

When you buy the Italian car... it is usually the heart that tells you so... your brain with all the $$$, $$$$ & $$ usually take the backseat (or car boot) ... ;p

Nope... not boxer engine.

Most Conti cars are a joy to drive tho they can be quite 'temperamental' and unpredictable at times.
QC wise not on par with the Japanese, so be prepared for some 'inconveniences'....;)

Have fun!

Not only that. Spare parts for some continental cars are sometimes hard to get and got to order from abroad. They are also much more expensive compared to Jap and Korean cars.

I use to drive an Aprilia bike long long time ago...back side itchy as it was very yeah yeah papaya and becoz it was the winner brand by very young Valentino Rossi.....

but the maintenance is really pain man...firstly servicing damn x.....must go back to the agent at Mcpherson road....parts also damn x and must order...

2ndly insurance damn X....all the agency says this model very prone to accident(wtf)....

3rdly the machine was damn thirsty.....cosume more fuel and 2T compare to the same class of other brand...

and finally the resale value...I paid nealy 13k...but can only get back about 4.5k after 2 years plus...no choice..was desperate to off load because must maintain a car also :p
