I was asked to give a quick review of my 'new toy' by the above mentioned AO member who saw my fleet listing on another thread and hi-jacked it.
I am lucky enough to be the owner of red LE 316. I have only had the car for one month and have just gone over the 1000 mile mark.
It really is an exciting car to drive and brings a real smile and enthusiastic response from other motorists. Even just stopping for fuel results in people showing great interest and taking loads of photos. The driving style did take some getting used to at first, the car is 5" wider than the 916's and judging the width was initially quite tricky. The noise from the engine is quite dramatic and in 'D' mode sounds like a Lambo or Ferrari 'supercar'. It is stupidly fast and I have to be very careful to keep within legal boundaries, (i have since fitted a front reg. plate before anyone asks). I have had 3M film fitted to the front bumper and sills as even the shortest of journeys seemed to result in a stone chip. The storage is minimal, the boot is the size of an office waste bin, but then, who has a car like this for luggage ?? The feel of the car is very sure footed and I must say that so far I just can't stop grinning during every drive.
