It's a dream on wheels
Pros: speed, handling, stereo, look, comfort
Cons: rear window, cargo space, road noise, suspension at low speeds
This car is every euro-roadster lover's dream come true. It handles and brakes extremely well and is reasonably comfortable for its class. Definate recommended buy. Read More at Epinions.com

Born Again Beemer
Pros: Looks great and thoughtful design.
Cons: Non-standard fittiings tie you to BMW-brand parts & accessories.

Gotta Love It!
Pros: Superb performance; Aggressive, yet sophisticated styling; Good value
Cons: A bit short on storage space and cup holders in cockpit
