The next best thing to a naturally aspirated V8, in my opinion.
How it's high torque across almost the entire rpm range makes for fun driving. I wish it was slightly more responsive at really low speeds, but a little turbo lag is pretty much unavoidable.
And yeah, drive it for fun, and it'll drink more.
