Despite all these problems this car is great! It's the most fun car I have owned.
It has superb handling and you often take corners slower than the car is capable of.
Performance is good too, 0-60 in just over 9 seconds, though the engine does start to get a bit breathless above 70.
If you enjoy driving, this car will not disappoint. It looks the part and has great responses, the drive is very involving and rewarding.
The steering keeps you on your toes and once you get used to the lift off over-steer you can have so much fun.
The gear change is crisp and allows you to make full use of the car's capabilities while accelerating through the gears.
The only let down with the drive is the brakes, it would be better if they were more forceful, though I don't think they are as bad as other people suggest.
Overall though an absolutely great car, I would recommend it to anyone. I'm selling mine this week, but only to upgrade to a VTS.
Don't knock it until you've tried it.
