Had this baby for almost a year now, it's my weekend car.
Initially was looking at the 350Z/G35 C 6 MT, but after test driving this car, I was blown away.
This car out accelerates anything else I have ever been in or driven with the exception of a 98 Dodge Viper ACR. It feels like a 747 taking off or the roller coaster at the theme park. This car does 150 MPH so quickly, it is just scarey. I should record my passenger's reactions to it!
You are pretty much sitting on a rocket. Excellent throttle response, turbocharger responds right away, this thing already flies at roughly 3000 RPM's.
Handeling, you got Fulltime AWD. You just laugh at everyone at stop lights, just laugh away. This car just grips and GOES! No wheel hop, no wheel spin, rain or shine. Watch everyone spin out and lose it as you leave them in the dust.
Brakes, Brembo 4 piston calipers in the front with massive rotors and SS ABS. Stops on the dime.
The clutch is excellent (unlike the Evo's...**cough cough**) a bit stiff, but that's a clutch that supports an under-rated 300 lbs-ft of torque, not some wimpy Honda clutch.
The 6 speed unit is awesome. Short shifts, built with triple and double synchros, oil cooler.
Interior is pretty decent, seats are comfy, had to put a stereo in it, but that was for 2004, they do come with stereos now. Sweet gauges, built in shift buzzer and gauge startup sequence.
I installed a custom net for the TMIC (Top Mount Intercooler) against rocks and bugs.
Love the wing and scoop, looks different and mean.
Very reliable so far, Mobil 1 synthetic every 3500 miles, good dealer support.
People make fun of the spoiler all the time, but they got no clue what this car can do. I love blowing them away.
