Great Starter Sports Car — Performance is great especially for drivers who want to make the transition to track. Not a very practical daily driver unless you have drove manual transmission your whole life. Perfect road car for back country road driving, not for passes at the drag strip. Keep this car out of the turner crowd unless that is your passion, and you have deep pockets. With basic bolt on's the car is plenty fast.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Great for driving on country roads.  Best car to own before buying a track car.

Cons: City driving very uncomfortable.  Factory OEM and aftermarket shops are not user friendly.  Parts are hard to get within reasonable timeframe.

Great 4-door "sports Car" For The Money! — What can I say, I love driving it! If you're looking for a practical yet spirited ride, look no further. Easy to work on and maintain. Also made a lot of friends just because of the groups out there for subies. Definite win, win!

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Awesome

Cons: Still ride, but that's not really a con. Wind noise can get up there on the highway.

Love This Car — Performance is outstanding. Love the way this car looks, gets awesome gas mileage even though its putting out 370 hp. Maintenance is a little pricey if you want to take care of it the right way, I only use Royal Purple oil and it about 10 bucks a quart. Extremely fun to drive. Fun to work on as well if you like installing aftermarket parts. Although aftermarket for this car is very pricey, I paid 600 for an ECU flash by Cobb Racing but it was well worth it to me.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Horespower and handling are insane, comfortable to drive, good gas mileage, not too expensive. Lots of upgrades available

Cons: Hard not to drive fast when in this car
