ReviewI've owned mine for 7 years, live in Germany where it can stretch it legs which it does VERY WELL. I have the 6- spd manual trans, love using all those gears and moving along at 130mph. Averages 24.5mpg. It has 340,000km (212,500 miles), not a problem with any serious mechanical part of the car, and I'm surprised to read about engine/transmission changes from those who have had these problems. Mine runs as good as the day I bought it 7 years ago, and it still does 157mph. I can't imagine selling it for any reason, workabee buds are forever trying to get me to sell it to them. Not a chance....
Best Features6-sp gearbox, 286hp engine, reliability, sporting nature, just a pleasure in all respects every time I get into it.
Worst FeaturesGet rid of some of the automation, like putting the wipers at intermittent wipe when stopped, the "all-or-nothing" defroster" (give me some levers that I can adjust to send the air where *I* want).
