I do think the gearing/torque curve are better for around town than a WRX, but that's not hard to manage.
You know, I really think this is what bothered me about the gearbox (unlike what I said before, that it didn't feel good). I would have to echo the "cramped" feeling in the front though...it made me feel a little claustrophobic, but I think it's just a matter of getting used to it. I did really enjoy test driving it, and if I could afford a new one I would have bought it over the MS3. But alas, baller on a budget.
