I definitely did cross shop the Ghibli SQ4. Looks and sound as well as price had me intrigued. Ultimately I decided to scrap the idea for a few main reasons:

1) Interior quality felt quite poor, and in certain areas looked like a grab bag of parts. The shift paddles felt like plastic.

2) Visibility was awkward. For me, the pillars seemed to be placed in the worst places, and the C pillar is really thick.

3) Limp accelerator pedal feel - strange how little resistance there is

4) Concerning issues on the Ghibli forums - check it out, lots of reports on cracked chassis components.
