This is the most boring car I've ever driven. Bad: It has huge body-roll in the corners, generally bad handling, a soft suspension, it feels disconnected from the road, has a bad clutch, and the red-line is too low. Good: It has nice wheels/tires and decent power for the price. The optional TYC taillights save the car from looking like every other econobox.
The wheels and TYC taillights.
Get rid of the glass roof gimmick, to lower the center of gravity, and reduce body roll. Harden the suspension. Lighten the car by 200 lbs. Allow the driver's seat to go lower by about 3-4 inches.
