Bad Idea Indeed

Your stereo works if you turn your ignition key anti clockwise. Using the boats electronics also makes sure you do not run the batteries dead, which could leave you stranded.

A beauty

Love to know how you find the electronics on this star. I have a 2008 and have been weary to upgrade because of all the electronics which could go wrong. I would appreciate an honest comparison ?

2008 xstar

R13.25/l = $1.2/l with 3.78 l in a gallon
thus $4,53/gallon more or less. Makes fuel cheap in US. Price of Xstar in South Africa R2,2 million = $200 000. Crazy expensive here
