Reading the other reviews,I
wonder if I was sold a completely
different car. First,the seats are so
deeply contoured that the left bolster
interferes with comfortable shifting.
My leg goes to sleep after about 30
minutes. If I get the steering wheel in
a comfortable place, I can no longer
see the instrument panel. The shifter
is sloppy and the clutch has no
definite point of engagement. The upper
gear ratios are so close that it is
hard to tell which gear I am in.
Combined with that is the fact that 1st
gear is so tall that I am at redline
not much above 20 mph.
It does, however, have a nice sound
Do not allow anyone who has owned a
real performance car to buy this one.
The car ploughs in turns with noticable
understeer. With the autolock feature
implemented when I want to exit the
car, I have to pull the handle twice.
