This car is a Torque monster! It
blows away my turbo VW. The
suspension is very tight with minimal
body roll. Initial quality was
great. I was very surprised how much
power the car had after I broke it
in. The gear ratios are perfect for
the elastic 2.5l and the brakes are
superb. Keep an eye on the TACH
because 6,000 comes up quick!!!
Torque, torque, torque. Gas mileage is
great, about 270 miles on 11.9
gallons. Power to weight is
excellent, and the brakes rock. The
car is tighter without sunroof and
lighter. Cat-back exhaust will bump
it by 10 ponies to match the Spec V.
Immediately buy some V rated tires.
The stock tires we're my only
complaint. It's like night and day.
I suggest Kuhmo. The are quiet and
they last a long time. You won't
regret it. Also, get a K & N panel
filter #33-2259?? No need to modify
