This car is fun and sporty, I just bought it 2 days ago and its been good. I bought it with 97,XXX miles. I don't have any check engine lights so far and no catalytic converter issues yet. My issues with the car are the cheap interior parts. The cup holder can only support the weight of one really small cup without breaking off (mine was broke at purchase) and I see why! The arm rest, glove box, door panels, floor vent (passenger side), the seatbelt covers on the floor, ash tray, etc. all cracked or broken. That's what you get when you have a awesome German car with the interior parts made in Mexico. As to the rest of the car, very nice quality! At 100K mi, not worth more than $5000.00
Heavy solid feel at all times, drives like a true sports car! Blue interior lights are easy on the eyes. Brakes are great. Looks classy. Good value at under $5000.00
Interior plastic quality is awful. Be VERY careful with the plastic pieces, like hinges. Interior plastic is worse quality than my 18 year old Ford truck. Come on! 5-speed shifter throw is too far and sloppy (Get a short shift kit). Keys and electronics are way too temperamental.
