Eeeeh. The 110hp really kills it for me. And I want to sell it before I break something (clutch.) With how I drive it, something is bound to go soon.

As for cleanliness, the paint has shine, but there's soooo many swirls in it. I tried using some things to remove them the other day, but it just made it much worse. It's gotten to the point where when I look at my car, all I see is the swirls.

But again, the power just doesn't do it for me. I've lost to minivans, old old tauruses, and junker trucks. Other than that, I love the car. Love the 5 speed manual, good fuel economy even when I drive it like I stole it, and that it handles pretty well.
