The noise is like nothing I have ever heard coupled with the performance and handling provides a driving experience second to none.
The lack of steering feel seems to be the main issue with a lot of people however to me the feel it's perfect. The steering provides adequate information to know what's going on.
The ride is perfect for a car of this type although it's better with the PS2s as oppose to the cups. However only the cup tires can provide the full csl experience.
The performance from the engine is astounding, almost violent in its nature.
The SMG gearbox is a joy to use, never drive it below s4 and have never tried s6 yet. The automatic mode is useless and I think for a car like this it should have been omitted.
The DSC should also have been omitted as the m track mode is perfect for everyday driving. I have found that the DSC intervenes way to early and always drive with m track mode.
I find the seats comfortable however taller people that have been passenger in the car said they had a backache after an hour or so. Not sure if this is because I took the lumbar support Velcro cushion out of the passenger seat and placed it under the seating material in the driver's seat.
The car is huge and can easily fit 4 adults, there's a huge amount of leg room in the back. The boot space is excellent.
Running costs seem reasonable for what the car is. No where near those of an lancer evo which I owned previously with an elise. Fuel economy is reasonable also for such a car.
