I've had the car for 6 months and like it more each time I drive it. The seat comfort, handling, shifting and ride are superb. On long rides the seats allow you to arrive refreshed rather than tired. The car handles solidly at high speeds and corners nimbly without roll. The 6 speed is super smooth and quick. The highway ride is like floating on a cloud.
Front seat comfort is exemplary - no feeling of fatigue at the end of an all day ride. The manual transmission is great fun and the handling is superb. The overall fit and finish - especially the interior - is impeccable. The interior design is outstanding.
Two very, very minor items - It would be nice to have illumination of the button that folds the side mirrors and the dashboard knob that controls delivery of cool and warm air. Both of these are hard to see at night or in other dark conditions.
