2000 model SR20, empty weight 2100lbs with 3 blade prop, leather, stormscope, ‘C’ avionics, dual alternator and EMAX. Cruise speed at 8-10,000 is about 153 KTAS (ROP) - going LOP loses around 5-7 knots but much better fuel burn - ROP is around 10.5 GPH LOP is around 8.4. LOP is smooth - GAMI spread is around 0.6gph. Climb rate is pretty much as per book, though when fully loaded the climb is rather slow above 8000’ (300fpm). It does seem to have lost a few knots since new, probably due to stone chips on the prop, fairings not perfect, etc.
CG is NOT a problem, it is nearly impossible to get out of CG range, except at the forward limit - 2 big people in the front and nothing in the back does put it right at the front limit.
Reliability has been excellent, only one trip cancelled due to mechanical problems (electric fuel pump). Starting is easy since the modified port drains were installed. Maintenance costs have been higher than I would like, since there always seems to be something extra to do at 100 hourly inspections.
All in all, very happy with the plane, the extra speed and load carrying of the SR22 would be nice, but hard to justify the extra cost (no high mountains to climb over here in Oz).
