I've had a few nice cars in my day and this one is my favorite. Grew up with Mercedes and had a few BMW's but this car by far is much more reliable and better overall in the same class. Spent about 10k less than my BMW 325i and it's a much better car even at BMW's price.
Engine pickup is good, the light weight of the car makes it much quicker. Aluminum engine is key.
I should have picked up the 350 but I'm really happy with my purchase
