Great but not perfect

ReviewI love this car. Awesome value. Great
blend of a high performance sedan and
family truckster. Get the manual
tranny. The car is awesome in the snow
but do get some snow tires. This car
will run with Audi/BMW/MB for less $.
I love the variable suspension. Unlike
an M3, it won't shake your teeth loose
in daily commuting. I love the subtle
exterior styling. I have had problems
with brake squeal and have already had
new brake pads (free). I have scuffed
3/4 of the rims at drive throughs. The
radio is a bit too complex to operate.
The clutch is a bit springy and engages
a bit too high. It took a few weeks
before I got used to the clutch.
Best FeaturesSeats are awesome and extremely comfortable on long drives. Car is unique compared with the ubiquetous BMW/Audi/MB. Variable suspension. Please get the manual transmission. Snow tires a must in Midwest.
Worst FeaturesTurning radius is horrible. 6 CD player rather than 4 like my old Acura. Steering is vague at low speeds-less power assist at low speeds. Can't get cell phone service for the on-call phone. (No AT&T service in Champaign) Engine sound is not as lovely as an M3 or MB AMG.
