Review
This was one of the first 6 speed MT cars in the US and I have to admit I was pretty angry to find out the traction control could not be turned off; no one told me this ahead of time. This is not in keeping with the M car concept. I don't know if this approach is an attempt to save the driveline or save drivers from themslves but either way, this should have been made clear BEFORE the car got to the US. I don't think I would have bought it if I had known. Otherwise the car is very well appointed and fun to drive. Handling even without EDC on is very good. Brakes are outstanding. Can't get over 12 mpg no matter how I drive, but what can you expect from a car like this?
Favorite Features
M button. Brakes are superb. Seats are excellent.
Suggested Improvements
Get rid of the non-defeatable traction control! Go back to the old key system; why turn a simple one step motion (turning off the car) into a slow, three step process? Exterior styling still needs work. Replacing the CD changer with an iPod adaptor is a rip-off.
