In my commute, the power is nice, enough to put a smile on my face and easily overtake slower traffic.

I still haven't quite gotten used to the clutch and throttle when starting from a stop, I'm usually not giving enough throttle and bogging the motor but past that the shifting is very smooth except it can be easy to find second gear when you are trying a 5/6-4 downshift (not good on the highway).

The ride is a little bouncy but so far not uncomfortable or harsh and no bottoming.

The handling is more than you can reasonably use on the street, you really need an autocross to push the limits.

The brakes are good but create a lot of dust, not a big deal but I was surprised when my wheels were already dirty with less than 500 miles.

Cargo space is a bit limited.

I'm 5'9" and with the front seats adjusted for me, you wouldn't want a rear passenger much more than 5'9" in the back. If you are short, the car is fine, if you are average height, you can have average height rear passengers, if you are tall, your passengers will have to be short.

The car gets a lot of looks, especially by people who know what it is. I like the way it looks in person.

Parking is easy, rear visibility better than I was expecting, navigation and voice command pretty impressive.

I gave my parents a lift to and from the airport and they liked the space compared to the Fiat 500 they rented.

My one little gripe is that they should have put a little pocket in the door arm rest so you can control the door better when opening it.
