Everytime I sit behind the wheel I start to smile. What a joy to drive - outstanding acceleration, handling, and fun. The only car I have ever owned that I like to drive, years later, just for the sake of driving! This isn't a commuter car, or even a very practical car considering the small trunk - it was designed for pure driving pleasure. Put the top down, with your loved one at your side, and find a long twisting country road - If you aren't smiling the whole way then you don't have a pulse. No embellishment, just the facts. A true driving classic.

I loved this eccentric vehicle from the moment I first set eyes on it and I have not been disappointed. It steers like a go-kart and has one of the sweetest motors available from any manufacturer - Porsche included. There are a few small details that could be better - like the windows don't wind down all the way and central locking is an aftermarket fitment - not good on a $46k car. All is forgiven once you get this beast out on a mountain road and it comes into it's element. Single minded firecracker with just one purpose - to be driven and hard!

This car has outstanding strait-line
performance. It is a horsepower-driven
engine that loves to Rev. After owning
and test driving several BMWs, I can
tell you that this is BMW's best manual
transmission. The throws are short and
precise. Steering feel excellent and
the car prefers to oversteer in hard
cornering. Stability could be better.
A tower brace would greatly improve
that. Overall, and excellent car with
Outstanding perfomance for the $.
