Exterior look is what captured my attention. Could use a little more storage space inside. Excellent sound system. Loud air conditioning when above the middle mark. Minor adjustments could be focused on & improved, like electric window movement (rattle-some)better mileage for it's size and engine(5 cyclinder). Other than that. Love it and would recommend the S40 for the young out-of-college professional because it's about 10k less than the 3 series BMW, with all the similiar perks.
stereo, electric sun roof, interior and exterior look, choice of exterior colors, Interior leather seats and wood grain panel through out. Sporty, yet conserative and practical.
improvment can be done on interior storage areas, air conditioning is loud.
