Excellent car, no regrets.

ReviewI've got a 95 M-edition in Merlot, purchased
for a song about four months ago. Beautiful
car, a joy to drive. It's flashy, zippy, handles
tight and clean, and holds a lot more than it
looks. It never fails to get attention and
admiration. It feels utterly safe to drive, with
that edge of excitement that comes with
owning such a fast, sexy little machine. With
only one exception, something inexpensive
to fix, it has never let me down.
This is my primary mode of transportation--I
will never go back to more "sensible"
vehicles. There isn't much I'd change about
this car, and I have no regrets whatsoever
about buying it.
Best FeaturesForgiving shift. Fast and powerful for its size. Excellent visibility. Handles curves like a slotcar. Lots of roadfeel without lots of roadbumps! Comfortable to drive; lots of room for even taller people.
Worst FeaturesDrains batteries fast. Plugwires have already had to be replaced once (at 21k miles). Cupholder, when occupied, makes shifting awkward. Goofy location for trunk/ gas release levers. I want more horsepower and torque.
