This car is really great. You get so much more for the price. I bought my ms3 gt used about 5 months ago for $18k. It has a ridiculous amount of mid-range torque and can handle high speed corners extremely well. It is also great to live with everyday. I was smiling the whole test drive. I drove gti's and g35's and they both felt slow compared to the ms3. Everyone complains about the "vague" shifter. It's fine really. I've missed shifts before but it is never hard to find a gear.

Best Features

so much torque, bose does a pretty good job, interior lights, versatility, comfortable for the sporty suspension it has, 155 mph, nuff said

Worst Features

a few rattles in the cold weather, but I think just about every car has this problem. Bose should add a small sub to compliment the mids/highs.
