I bought this car because it was built in Germany. Shortly after I found out that many components have been altered to fit GM's US-requirements, which do not include quality. I have the same issues as many posted here, electrical issues (US version has an extensive OBD-II emission system which is not even cleaner than Europe's)and mechanical issues (rough running engine, stalling).
Quality (built, not components used), design, comfort, overall appearance.
