Near automotive perfection

ReviewI say "near" because the audio and nav system perform and look like equipment several generations old. Programming involves unnecessary steps, the screen is bland with minimal color levels, and it completely washes out in sunlight which obviously is a detriment in a convertible. The system won't even provide street labeling unless fully zoomed in to max detail. The radio functions are only average and sound is mediocre. The system needs more speakers with improved sub woofers and tweeters. To make up for these deficiencies the interior and exterior is a work of art. Coupled with the increased power and improved handling it's near automotive nirvana on a warm Sunday top down drive.
Best FeaturesEngine power and torque provide great acceleration and the improved steering makes you feel like you're hard wired to the car. Watching the top perform its contortion act is great entertainment.
Worst FeaturesReplace the antiquated nav system with an up to date touch screen unit that is easier to program, has a brighter screen with more color levels and has more user defined features. The rather anemic sound system needs more speakers and power.
