My overall feeling about the looks are 'it's ok'. Doesn't excite me the way a BMW does. Mushy accellerator feeing. Quite ride, almost too 'cushy' for a sports sedan. Interior was nice, with the exception of the carbon upgrade, which looked reminicient of a 79 Trans Am. The little metal knob at the top of the shift lever gets hot to the touch while the car's running, uncomfortable.

Overall quality is good, probably better fit and finish than BMW, of late.

Looks cool in the Yellow, Black and something like BMW's Sienna Red.

Didn't get a chance to toss the car around as we had the salesman in the back seat.

Certainly is a nice ride for money.

My .02.


Noel.
