Dislikes - Toooooooo many plastic parts that brake, Flimsy rear suspension, No LSD, Stupid wheel bolts why not use a stud, Crap satnav and associated electronics, Stupid intercooler, A radiator and oil cooler that is to small for our Aussie climate. Electro water pump, High pressure fuel pump still not sorted, Plastic fuel lines and stupid snap connectors, the brake package works but looks like it is from an X5, Temperamental electronics that will be a huge issue in another 5 or so years, Long life or life time oil policy that may or may not be an issue with high Kms. All in all when they are 15 + years old you don't want to own one.

BUT you know what, i still smile when i am behind the wheel

I feel exactly the same with your pros and cons with the below additions:

Interior LED strips in doors
Comfort Access
LED convenience lighting on door handles and under doors
Onboard Vehicle diagnostics
Black (msport) headliner
Factory flush guards

Wastegate rattle
Dull tacho/speedo (needs an update)
Woodgrain/marl interior trim
No jack included in car
