Have to agree on the fun-to-drive factor!! Whew!
this car is a
blast to drive!
Love the orange interior lights at night!
Guage package likened to a wrist watch face is an original touch. Shifting is solid quality feel.

Love the sound of the engine.
Handles like she's' on rails.
Just bought a set of 18" rims (all black) with potenza s-04 pole positions, so the ride should be on fire soon. Im' driving a Subaru GT wagon in the winter but my life is changing so I'm selling Suby after 13 yrs of ownership. :( But Looking forward to buying a set of micheling Xi3, dedicated winters, to be mounted on the stock rims.
Should handle the snow just fine and be a lot of fun in the drift too!

Best Features

Looks /engine sound/interior lights/dash/reliability sound system is fantastic

Worst Features

1.TELESCOPING STEERING WHEEL OR LACK THEREOF. Major drawback. Im' 6'2". Shorter people prolly np at all with the same. 2.GAS mileage is horrible. But on the hwy it's decent so whatever 3. requires premium fuel. Ouch. 4. Smallish front seats, and narrow btw the pillars in the front
