Should be okay, you get what you pay for. They do a three star model, slighly better, as well.

The 3 Star is a limited edition of 100, so your chances of finding one are slim.

The 1 Star looks ok, pretty basic, but if its in your price range and you want one, why not? Make sure the hubs are running smoothly and you should be set for a while.

Isn't the One Star Hi-ten and the 3 Star is 4310 Cromo? There's plenty around for under $500 especially with the EOFY sales.

The One Star IMO just doesn't look right, i'm not going to say it's ugly but it doesn't do anything for me at all. The 3 Star is quite nice though, i could go that (if i wasn't already pining for a Cooper).
