I also disliked the tiny interior. I recall that if you had the radio door open, it would stab my leg. My left arm would squeeze tight against the door. Now, it had it's moments, but it was hopelessly weak in today's high hp/tq suv traffic. Never mind taking on any other type performance vehicle.
I agree with stock power, although on a track it's still fine. However once you get these things in the the 400+HP range and you tweak the suspension there really isn't anything like it!
