I bought the car in '99 and have put 100k miles on it. It is wonderful to drive. It is still quick and handles great. At 11 years old, it still has no rattles and runs well. It was relatively problem free until 100k and now needs some wear and tear related work done on it. Most of the work needed is to replace gaskets that have started to leak, which are quite pricey to replace.
Handling, driving experience, fun to drive, quiet ride, styling.
