First, when you choose this car you should be somebody who is willing to understand the engine and the fact that it is a sports car you are buying. Here is what you need to know: the engine produces a ton of power: power lies between 4,000 and 9,000 RPM; not 1,500 to 4,000 like a Mustang. It has a Renesis Engine (rotary) so it has unique needs. Warm up required, familiarly with the dechoking procedure if you need it and monitoring of the oil level (used to lubricate the rotor vanes). Finally, you must know how to drive and properly use a stick shift. If you can do these things, you will be rewarded with utter joy. I smile everytime I warm mine up. I love it. It's different, It's amazing.
Beautiful car. Incredible road handling, yet a fun commuter. A feeling of being cerebrally connected to the car and road. The sound. The rush.
Sport MT package should be standard (Xenon headlights, traction control). Ability to use a standard radio. Satellite radio should be built in along with MP3 capability.
