Good performance with good gas mileage. The styling is very subtle which I like because it doesn't draw too much unwanted attention. Slick shifting manual. The ride is a little harsh at times when going over defects in the road. The car sounds awesome with the windows down at 7000+ rpm. This is truly a driver's car. Another added bonus...for a few thousand a turbocharger can put it in the 300+ HP range.
Transmission, styling, seats, the 8100 rpm redline.
A few lingering rattles in the dash. Some suppension popping noises which the dealer can fix but is still a hassle.
