I purchased this car in June of '05 and have had nothing but good experiences with it. The 6MT is a real pleasure to drive. The shifting is quick and precise (could be better with a shorter shifter). The V6 is quiet but has a nice growl when the rpms climb above 4k. 1st and 2nd Gears are my favorite - pulls with great intensity. Overall, the interior is nice to look at, the ride is smooth, and it gets fantastic gas mileage.
The V6 mated to the 6MT, perforated leather seats and steering wheel, nice looking 17" rims, the San Marino Red color, and smooth body-lines on the exterior.
