We need a little positive talk around here.

I'll go first: a little 2.5 dynamo that even stock pulls like a small block eight when needed, comfortable yet nimble handling, strong brakes, a well matched 6-speed, excellent stereo, all wrapped in a comfy Atacama glove that I can sit in all day and be more refreshed than when I started.

Actually, that's a lot of great features. And all for under $40k.

Yes, the best factor is stealth. I don't need every rice rocket racer trying to get my attention.

Re: (flybynight)

Best feature, the turbo engine allways pulling away with ease up to 120 mph; It pulls away from almost anyone, specially if you asually drive at altitudes above 5,000 ft. Closely followed the nicest interior in it's class and two or three classes above.

Re: What do you think is the best feature on your R? (sgmlaw)

Helmut, Stagg... great answers! I like the Haldex AWD system. In first and second, accelleration around a low speed 90 degree turn with the R in advanced mode... it is the only thing that gives me chills every time! *whew*... sorry.. I hafta go drive now!

I've only had my R for just over a week now and I've already done that to one unsuspecting passenger. Laughed my butt off!

The stealth factor is very appealing & once I resolved my early squeal issues, the brakes are awesome! The sound system is pretty solid too!

I still http://********************/smile/emlove.gif my R

AWD

No AWD with DSTC turned off, in Advanced mode with BSR Stage 1 and running heavy 104 octane mix down a twisty country road. http://********************/smile/emthup.gif

Aftet that, I'd say the norm's.

1. Sweeeet look (Yes, including the Flash Green/Attac Interior combo)
(Gotta see it in real life to appreciate.)

2.Seats

3. Dash Cluster (although making gauges to match is costing me a bunch!!)

4. Something else I like is the shifter, how it sits with console and overall it's got some very agreeable operation.

I would say the sonic blue. That color is what made me notice the car.
If it were not for sonic or red, I would probably never even have noticed the R.

Re: What do you think is the best feature on your R? (Eric_H)

It is a jack of all trades. Since I can't own a separate track car, luxury sedan/cruiser, and AWD bad weather car, I get all in one package. The only seats that I have been more impressed with were in a Ferarri 575M, but that is just because the fit like a glove, the R seats might be better on a long drive.
