Overall, as long as you do not want interior toys, this car will satisfy any performance enthusiast
No faults since new, and very reliable.
An excellent performance car with a few problems. Firstly due to the light body panels it picks up an unbelieveable amount of dents in car parks.
Secondly it is not a very high revving car in that peak power seems to arrive at between 5500 and 6000 rpm, after this all you do is increase the noise level.
In saying that I am being picky as the roadholding and performance are excellent, and the car is even unbeatable in snow as long as you don't brake hard and active the anti-lock brakes. In comparison to other cars apart from obviously an Evo, there appears to be little than can beat it - I recently had passed an M3 that could just keep up, but not overtake, and I don't pretend to be a great driver.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
