This is the most fun to drive car I've
ever had! Due to my various exploits, I
shouldn't comment on reliability. It
has a close ratio transmission, so make
sure you don't mind turning 3900+ rpm at
80mph (fuel economy suffers as a
result). This car was made for driving,
with easy to read guages and good
driving position. Ride is kind of
harsh, but handling is out of this
world. This car loves to get up and go.
I can't believe I still have my
Recaro seats (especially with my bad
back). Great noises (engine, exhaust).
Exclusivity (Hey, aren't you that guy
who drives the green GTI?). Did I
mention fun to drive?
Would have liked some creature comforts,
especially cruise control. Also, there
were several niceties shown in the
brochure that were absent from my car
(LED 3rd brake light, body color
BBS wheels were quite soft.
