Well it actually seems a bit "old fashioned" on first impression.
No welcome lights, no guide me home lights.
Slightly picky but after about 10 years of having them you find them useful.
Also compared to the RCZ the stereo and speakers are poop.

Handles a bit better, not as punchy.
Although only has 16k it and the dmf isn't rattling.

Seats are a bit better.
Gear change nicer .
Parking sensors are not as good.

Does need more noise though.
I might see if someone will buy me a rear silencer delete for Xmas.

I think we take stuff like guide lights welcome light for granted but great when put car in garage etc
yes I found the box great and precise yes possibly old school 90's coupe feel that you can chuck about, yes sound on standard was a bit subdued but that can be addressed easily

"The time has come," the Walrus said, "To talk of many things: Of shoes and ships and sealing-wax, Of cabbages and FOCAL speakers to replace the crap standard ones in a Toyota GT 86"

I might just be able to hear music now.
