The best all in one sports car ever made, it a great looking and quite coupe with the hard top up, a nice highway convertible with smooth air flow even at obscene speeds, easy to drive all day and moves a lot faster than the reviews (once it breaks in between 12 to 18K miles). It faster and less stressful to drive than the 911 I owned (with the rear engine) and more secure and solid feeling then the M3 I traded. I also enjoy not having every kid in a z-car or Mustang changing me on the highway like in the 911 and M.
Bose auto adjust sound system, automatic downshift transmission, great trunk space with top up, turbine like smoothness in power.
Add top up and down function to the remote, put the CD changer in gove box (not the trunk)
Bought it used in 2006 and it had 13,000 miles. Now it has 20,000 miles. Changed the oil and filter myself and went with Castrol Full Synthetic instead of recommended Mobil 1 and it sounds good and seems to have better response. It's pretty fast and it zooms through traffic with no problem. Be sure to turn off the traction control if you want to hear some screaming tires, otherwise you'll just jerk in low speed. Mine seems to vibrate a little when in idle.
Pedal to the metal. When you press the pedal down, there's another button you can press further, I think that's the supercharger. It speeds almost 10 mph per sec w/ no hestiation.
Cruise control should be placed elsewhere. I keep touching it instead of the turn signal. Also, it would be nice to see some type of LED light come on to let you know that cruise is on.
A girls car i have been told. But,
since I am a female that statement does
not bother me. I have had my car for
about 2 years. I drive it as a weekend
vehicle. I love the color and how it
drives. the engine runs very smooth,
no complaints. I am meticulous about
it. I do not think I will ever get rid
of it. It is a car that i can see
having for years.
The front end is too low and scrapes
the ground a lot. I have had to
replace mine in less than 6 months of
having the car. $2000 expense. it is
either needs to be raised a few inches
or needs to be made sturdier so it will
not rip appart.
The car had no problems upon delivery.
I had only one minimal repair
(a defective door contact for the
interior light) after 24 000 miles of
driving. Oil consumption was minimal.
Acceleration is tremendous, the car
handles very competently and the
brakes are outstanding. The Xenon-
lights are definitely worth the money.
All this makes the car a lot of fun to
drive, in particular in the summer. I
have to use the car in the winter as
well and I was surprised that it is
drivable in snow as long as you treat
the accelerator like a raw egg. I used
Bridgestone Blizzak LM 22 tyres on AMG
rims (tirerack.com) for the winter.
Performance, retractable hardtop, high
performance car that is fun for

antiquated, sound system, GPS-guidance
