I have a silver one of those. There is power assisted steering that others don’t have. Mine has an auto windshield wipers sensor, leather heated seats and the clock and tach pods. No engine upgrade. My wife’s 2006 with the Mercedes engine can smoke mine!

Yep, I originally got a 453 (0.9l turbo), skipped over all the normally aspirated 451s, and my favorites to drive are the 0.7l turbo 450s (2002-2007) in manual mode.
You can downshift and 'engine brake' a 450 but not the 453 dct.
