Bought the car brand new back in January 04. Got it in black and when I first saw it, I loved it. Now the paint is kind of dull and some scratches are starting to show. I say my favorite color now is the white one, the charcoal and red color is nice too. The car is fast every now and then and very uncomfortable in long trips. The mpg is not so bad if the gas prices stay low. If the car came with 18" or 19" wheels it would be a 10 in looks.
Manual transmission and exterior looks.
Brighter HID headlight, 18" wheels, short shifter, more comfortable seats, and better interior all around (dash) I want to feel like I'm driving a Lexus IS 300 not a Toyota Corolla.
