Default Got mine - first impressions

Well, I got mine at the weekend, the Sport model. First impressions are that it's very cool indeed, it certainly looks the business and stands out from all the other samey cars you see on the road these days. Performance seems good, the three driving modes are fun, especially when you want to crank it up in "sport" mode.

Main drawbacks so far for me are the rear visibility (I know a coupe is never that good, but the tinted window and cross bar make it even harder than ever), and the farcical back seats (yes, again, I know it's a coupe, but in my previous Puma it was possible to squeeze two normal sized humans in the back. It's not going to happen in this car).

Overall, I'm still warming to it. It is definately a stylish hi-tech car, not perfect, but good fun.

Anyone else got one yet?

You are number one. Someone upgrade this guy's crz craze membership! But you MUST post pictures or else nobody will believe you.

I'll add more when I can take it somewhere decent to shoot it.

After having owned it a short while now, how about a review?

I'm personally interested in:

1. I see that the back seat is standard in your market, what about rear visibility-are you used to it, and am I correct that the rear backup camera was available as an option? If so, what are your thoughts on having passed on that (other than the obvious cost!)?
2. Handling: in Sport mode, how do you feel about body roll in the corners? Any planned upgrades for the suspension?
3. MPG: How are you sitting mileage-wise and what percentage of the time are you in econ/norm/sport modes?


With this being such a looker, I"m sure you are getting lots of attention. But my question is of the lookers, what cars are they driving?
For example: any Mini Cooper lookers, VW GTi, Fiat 500/Abarth,...?

BTW, your Teal (and also the black) are my favorite colors. Enjoy your new baby!

What makes it a Sport Model in your market?
Your headlights look different than ours, are those LED's along the bottom ?
Congrats on the car!

I too really want to see more rear seat pics
If we do get a turbo version in 2012 I'm going to be buying and would love to mod my car to a back seat version like what you have
