Hello all! Welcome to my review! This is my first, so I hope you enjoy it!

This is a set released in 2009, and I saw it in K-Mart. I said to my self "Why not?" even though it was a bit pricey. :grin:

Part one: Box, Parts, Accessories, and Minifigures

The box, showing the set all together.

The back, showing a guy reaching for the phone (who knows who he's calling :oh:), jumping in the car, and taking off (ditching the cops!!! *oh2*).

The parts, Lego Club ad, and Instructions.

The instructions. Looks like his car broke down.

I don't WANT to join the Lego Club, thank you :hmpf_bad:.

The parts, badly sorted.

The minifigure. I just love that smirk! He looks like a rich person living in Beverly Hills. Or he could just be the Viagra guy from the Grand Emporium. :grin:

The emergency phone. It's used for calling 9-1-1 or your mother. :laugh:

A tree. Seriously, a tree?

Part 2: INTERESTING PIECES AND SPARE PARTS

img1031xr.jpg

The interesting pieces are the printed 1x2 tile and the cheese graters. Not that much (though the cheese graters can be used to grate cheese :tongue:)

We get some cheese (yum), a stud, and a technic pin thingy.

Part 3: The final build!

The set all together! The sleek design makes this thing look awesome. :thumbup: I think this thing is based of of a coupe.

Another view.

Notice the vent in the back. Also, there's a gap behind the steering wheel. Why? Is it because of the design, or the TLC wants to save a quick buck :hmpf_bad:.

FINAL VERDICT

Playability: 7.3/10 You drive your car. It breaks down. Call the phone. Smash your car into the tree!

Design: 7.9/10 Would give this 8.5/10, but it didn't come with doors and theirs a gap behind the steering wheel.

Price: 6.8/10 A bit pricy at 11 cents per piece.

Parts: 8/10 You get a tree and some OKAY parts.

Minifigure: 9/10 Viagra guy!

OVERALL: 7.8/10 (A good set if you want to get a car in your city)

BONUS:

Viagra Guy: He babe, wuzzup... you wanna have some when I ge-

Phone: THIS IS YOUR MOTHER!

Thanks for sharing this comprehensive review. A nice 4-studs wide car with doors is welcoming but that's what I hope for though. This set does not come with red doors and I have to purchase those doors and done slight modifications to allow that fixtures. Nevertheless, it's still a decent set though.

I have inserted the review title as well which you have omitted earlier.

Great review! This set is okay, but it is a bit overpriced. It's cool that you get a tree with it though :thumbup:

Thanks for the review 'The Soup Nazi' - cool car with only one real fault.....those wheels and tyres....fine on a van or truck, but a sports car.....a 4 wide at that....ah well, made for a price I guess. :wink:

I'm a conformist! ! :sweet:

Thanks for the review. I picked one up on sale last year. I found the tires stuck out too much. It eventually broke down into parts for my red tow truck MOC. :classic:
