Summary:

Unbelievably good, almost worth the price

Faults:

Leather on the steering wheel wore quickly.

Rear tires only last 14,000 miles.

General Comments:

Wicked fast!

Perfectly matched gearing to engine's torque curve.

Scary at the limit if you're not used to it.

Easy car to live with and drive daily.

Aside from tires and oil changes, not much maintenance cost.

You won't believe how good this car is until you drive something else right after it.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
