Cool APEX brushless touring car

Thinking of getting this car as my first 'official' touring car after the bunch of tt01 rc's I currently own, check it out here:

http://www.teamassociated.com/cars_and_trucks/Apex/RTR/

Does anybody have any opinion on this car? its right at the top of my budget so don't suggest anything over about 250 (about $400), with that budget in mind I would be very thankful for suggestions, rather a kit than a chassis and separate electrics if possible! Thankss!

EDIT: wait, sorry, no longer sure that this is the one that's based on the on the old TTR, will investigate and update...

But yeh, you can get that for about 155 sterling shipped from Tower Hobbies, so plenty of budget left for a few upgrades (start with the servo )

I do most of my research on my employer's time, owing to the fact I have two very young ones. I'll have a good look tomorrow.

I can find nothing to indicate that the Apex is a bad car for the money, go for it. If you can't figure out how to get it shipped for 155 quid, let me know, it's complicated, but worth understanding the discount scheme at Tower for International customers.
