For it being FWD, it handles suprisingly well. Very flat while cornering and a slight understeer. I am amazed

Nice. Keep us updated on how you like it.

I'm very strongly considering a Speed3 GT, and trading the leather with a cloth set up we have at work.

Nice! One of the few FWD cars out there I wouldn't mind driving every day. I'm jealous.

for a daily driver, that is a ridiculously nice car.....****, I only wish id be able to drive something like that "just to work, as a daily driver" lol......love it

any mods? I still ask because once you feel what a reflash can do to a turboed car, you quickly become dependent

No, Call me and get an Xede!
The Xede increased the fuel ecomomy by 6 mpg on our car.

We have parts for the MS3 also.
