SR22.

I like the Mooney better, mainly for the efficiency. The SR22 is more comfortable, has the G1000, and of course the parachute (which is what sold my girlfriend). But, I'm a bang for the buck kind of guy (like most Mooney owners), and there's nothing better in this category of plane for that than the Mooney. Oh well, life is a series of compromises.

OMG! you bought a Cirrus because of your GF? Dude, I question your, ahhh, Aeronautical Decision Making :)

That's a mistake. It's 220 SFRM.

It's a mixed bag. The only thing that matters is that my girlfriend will fly with me in it, and she wouldn't in the Mooney. I've had problems - 2 bad cylinders on a 70 hr SFOH engine, alternator failure, a bunch of small things. The learning curve on the G1000 is steep, for not that much incremental benefit. It's 5-10 KTAS slower than the Mooney on about 1 gph more fuel flow. I was happier with the Mooney. Then again I'm happier with the girlfriend than without. Everything is a trade off.

Just remember the old adage; "If it flies, floats, or f**ks, LEASE IT!
