At 37k miles a f/you review: I love this car. In fact I catch myself thinking of upgrading to say a 335i or something and then going. Nah. I'm keeping this at least till a 100k miles since it is so good to drive. It has been very reliable with only normal wear items brakes/tires needing replacement. Quite easily one of the most underrated cars out there and tremendous handling/steering and overall fun factor. The gearbox is now well bedded in and butter smooth. Fuel economy is the only negative but is more because this car encourages hooligan driving. I wring it out and it gives me about 21 mpg. However-drive properly and on a long cross-country trip I got a steady 35 mpg.
SAP 1 Package and EAP wheels : car looks very sharp like the WRC focus Handling/Steering is perfect Audiophile sound system is excellent Creature comforts at the price-heated seats/sunroof/leather are unbelievable
Gas mileage--see above A little more horsepower--if they cud avoid torque steer..car is actually very balanced with its present setup.
