I've driven my 6-speed manual for over a month now. Love the performance. So much fun to drive. Engine sounds sweet. I'm tall (6'-5") and no problem with head or leg room. Have had some comfort issues with the headrest; still trying to adjust everything. Otherwise the seats "hug" you, which is great. The AWD handles fantastically; corners like it's on rails. Like the tech system for the most part; still learning it. Traffic and weather are nice features. The exterior design is fine despite what the editors say. Like the HID headlights. Gas mileage overall is lower 20's but what do you expect with a 305hp engine - 35mpg? Yeah right. Really like the car and enjoy it immensely.
Performance, cornering, AWD, seat comfort (less headrest), weather, traffic; car warms up and puts out heat VERY quickly - a must here in Cleveland, OH in the winter.
Make tech package not mandatory for AWD model; heated steering wheel; auto- dimming side mirrors; have seat automatically scoot forward AFTER you sit down in seat.
