Review
Although I just bought it I can smell potential. Out of the box it handles great, more so than you would expect. I drove all cars in this class and not only was the 3 better, it was thousands less. Leaving money for goodies. Really the only thing wrong with it is even with sport package and 17s it still comes with all-season tires. Take them off asap replace with 205/45/17zr and it sticks like glue. I have nothing but positive things to say. Out of every car I've had this one I'm truly happy with. Drive it, you'll see. For the money nothing even comes close.
Favorite Features
The smoothest manual tranny ever. Completely flat in corners. Interior and exterior both very pleasing to the eye. Comfortable and fun to drive. Controls on steering wheel for audio and cruise and multicolor dash.
Suggested Improvements
Could use a little more low-end torque. Sport package should include ZR tires. Make zenon standard with 2.3. It would be sweet if they offered a package of options including exhaust and intake.
