Manual version is very fun to drive as long as you don't mind driving the stick. The car is looking great from behind; very sexy. It has great lines and it feels sleek and "in style" even after 4 years. I recommended it mostly for in-town commute. I drove it from Atlanta, through DC and NY, when I moved up to Chicago. I drive it in Chicago and it fits perfectly here; easy to park, easy to move around on short distances. I don't understand why only 7.2 in Editor's review.
Sleek feeling when driving the manual version. Great design. Excellent audio system. Reliable so far, no problems whatsoever.
A bit more power; I subscribed to bumping the engine at least to 150 hp with a well-adjusted automatic transmission.
