No I am sticking with the Proton. The air intakes etc were memorably OTT. It did remind me rather of that old Lotus at the time... small and rather unattractive.


Funny everyone slags protons off so when I was given one in KL years ago I was expecting a real lemon, but credit where its due, I treated it like a 2 dollar whore, never serviced, or washed it, went off roading and half flooded it, accidental filled it with diesel, but it would start and kept going for years with out any trouble, like some old faithful dog.

But that's not always a good thing. Ssyangyong Musso's had Merc drivetrains but they were real lemons. Or at least most of the ones that made it to Singapore were.
