I don't understand the hate towards this car (or any other car other than BMW)... I wouldn't buy one myself, because I don't like the body style, the ones I drove didn't have good feel etc... But the credit is due where it is due... It is a freaking fast car.. I wish BMW was as good as we make it sound.. but it isn't. It makes heavy cars, doesn't put proper brakes (not even ducting in a car like M3), gets bad mileage, reliability issues if you want decent mileage (hpfp)...
