I MUST have it.

No way in heck I could stand the acceleration of 35hp.

But....$2500? heck, can't argue with that logic! Then you buy it and the owner'* manual says - "LIFE EXPECTANCY of car - 6 months"

Considering many millions of families in the world travel like this, maybe a 35 hp 4-door sedan is a big step up. The are going from 125 cc engine to 600 cc and you don't get wet when it rains! I guess it'* all about perspective.
