Unsurprisingly Suprising Quick

I bought my 3 a few weeks ago and do mostly highway driving. Although the fuel economy is not up to par with Honda, it does better than my previous auto. Road noise is a bit loud over 70MPH, but the car has super handling.The responsiveness and handling makes you feel connected to the road. A definite best-buy for its class. Very Pleased. 2.0L is great, but 2.3L is better, if you have the extra $1000-$1500
Handling. Handling. Handling. Handling. Peppiness and steering responsiveness. Excellent Interior, HUGE glove box and trunk. Powerful A/C for those texas-hot January days. :P
Bit better gas mileage, more rear leg room (Kinda small if you're over 6ft) Brighter instrument panel.
