My eye's been on this car for some time, but after my first test drive, I thought it was a bit anemic under the hood. Decided it was best to wait for the '09, but then saw a great lease deal and test drove again. Realized with good use of the manumatic, you can really bring out performance. So pulled the trigger on the deal and have no regrets. It's a fully loaded little beasty that's just great to drive. Would match it up against the Lexus IS 250 any day for 5k less.
Fully loaded with features/gadgets. No need to burn brain cells deciding what to get.
Add horsepower and torque. Perhaps a slightly more aggressive looking shell.
