I have 2.4i auto with sport package and premium audio. It is an amazing fun to drive it. More over, exterior looks very fresh and attracts much attention, especially with my rare color - safari. On the dynamic side it is OK. Somewhat excessive spin-off at start on wet roads and less than expected acceletation uphill somewhat diminish the fun. Switching from manual transmission I notice annoying transmission lag during sudden change from braking to acceleration. Interior is very well-thought. It is asthetic, versatile and the most unique i've seen so far. Some extra head room and better road visibility would help a lot. Otherwise enough space everywhere.
Design in and out, handling, premium stereo, intuitive non-intrusive controls, nice driver information system, well-thought seats and superb seat fabric (T-tec).
Better road visibility, especially from driver's rear view mirror; more responsive automatic transmission; more robust system software; interior assembly quality (maybe it is just mine as it was one of the first ever built - 07/04); improved rear-front weight balance.
