Was looking for something with a bit of snap. Drove the RX8/MS6 before getting into this car the torque and power. Have taken it to a track day and the stealth factor is awesome. No one knew what the car was. Taking off the MS3 badge afer this :). Highly recommended. Best car for the money.
The Q ship factor, brakes and the torquey engine. No need to drop down another gear when taking a corner with the AC on.
Interior could be better. Quality is down compared to my 03 GTI. Shifter is horrible, have to guide it thru the gear. Suspension dampening could be better, a bit harsh over bumps. Engine redline could be better, having to shift at 6K weak when there is no power below 3k. Fatten up the top end.
