This car gets up and goes, it has never let me down. And even though it is 8 years old it still gets compliments on how good it looks. From the moment I sit in it and turn it on to that low purrrrrr the car sits down, then it goes! The faster I go the smoother it rides, I love the power, even when it is sitting still.
Lighted inside mirrors, cup holders, remote key lock.
I've owned my M Roadster for seven years and still love it. The retro styling still turns heads and the car is still rock solid. Blinding fast to 60 because of the wonderful torque, it's equally impressive in the important 50-80 range. If you want techno-gadgets, buy something from Japan, but if you like to drive, this is your car. These 1998-2001 cars have bottomed out in price and will soon start appreciating.

This car is excitement on wheels!! It
is just an awsome car to drive as well
as look at. The cornering ability will
amaze you. Just grit your teeth and
turn the wheel. I've had a lot of toys
but this is the ultimate for the money.

wouldn't change a thing. I'm not sure
what I can replace it with since it
