I purchased this 2011 w/6 manual in magnetic gray with rear spoiler (spoiler made the purchase point for me). After looking at a 2010 & 2011, the interior blew me away for quality, and style for the new 11 vs the 10. The new engine and drive train and hands down better than the 10. Driving the 10' seemed to be like a driving a turd. And the while the 11' is most certainly full of power, it still isn't a SPORTS car. The improved width made comfort hands down top notch, and while I'm 6'1" and a huge dude, i feel comfortable in the back seat, something rare for a two door. The 6 speed manual is smooth, and the gears fall into place naturally, without fumbling.
The radio is something to note, while at the dealer the radio wasn't installed, but had it been installed, i probably would have not even needed to test drive the car. Really your getting a top quality car, loaded with features for a bottom dollar price, pay extra and get a few more features.
The biggest down fall, i feel is with modern vehicles entirely, i hate the new electric gas pedals, i really miss the cable pull type. Just feathering the gas w/manual trans causes a jerky feeling, either give it gas and accelerate, or no gas and get the opposite. Will be upgrading sway bars 2.
