A few pics & initial reactions...

Posted below are a few quick pics I took this morning.

After one week, I'm really happy with the car. It's nimble and handles well, has a reasonable amount of power (surprising, even, for a 2 liter 4 cylinder), and the electronic features are useful and fun. This is the first car I've ordered with adaptive cruise control, and I'll never get another car without it. As others have mentioned, the Tuxedo Black metallic does a good job of hiding dust.

As for negatives, I wish the trunk lid opened a bit further/higher: watch your head! Was a bit surprised to see a prop rod for the hood, but no biggie. When you accelerate hard and then back off the throttle, the engine tends to continue revving a bit before the RPMs drop. That's about it for now. Fantastic car!
