If you look inside a DSM engine, you will find it far from simple...
Roller rockers, balance shafts etc.  With regard to engineering, I have had
far fewer problems with the Mitsubishis I've run over the years (to similar
mileages) than my current Audi, and I would say that the MBs are probably
better engineered.  (Having said that DSM gearboxes are crap).

This does not make me a unhappy Audi owner, as for a saloon, it is by far
the best handling I've ever driven, including much some newer cars (95
Lincoln Continental, 9x Vauxhall Cavalier etc.)
