A little pick heavy, but here goes.
I ordered this the end of Sept. and it arrived Nov.8 finally.
Gotta have it green, v6, 6 spd man, 102a, performance package, Recaro seats, tech package,reverse sensing system with security system, a couple things I can't remember right off also.
v6 is 305hp/280tq
ordering the performance package deleted the spare tire, the shaker sound sytem. recaros deleted the leather. car weighs in at 3300lbs compared to the stock weight of 3511lbs.

Actually running the ethanol crap out of it.

Now what the hell am I supposed to use all that extra space for where the spare was?

You could put a speaker box in that space and still have trunk room.

Is the rear seats as comfortable as the front Recaro's ? I think the green is growing on me. Awsome ride for sure.
I was thinking of getting a spare to put in mine. I don't know if I trust the air pump and the fix a flat stuff it has. If anything it is peace of mind.

actually I figure thats what roadside assistance is for... let them fix it. Hell, we don't even have a jack or lug wrench anyway.
I just realized something, we don't even get the damn funnel for the gas fill. definitely something I'm going to need to scrounge up.

There should be a gas funnel in the trunk. Mine has one. Let me go out and check where it is at.

It is at the rear of the car attached to the air pump box, on the rear back side. It is a small white funnel. [thumb]

That's really kind of scarry. Taht's about what I got when I had my '05' 4.6 dyno tuned but to run on 87 octane due to a trip out West. Not n gain on the top but up to 3500, lots of difference and that's where I told him to put it

At 80...25mpg, if i keep it at around 70 its just shy of 29.
Gotta remember tho, mine doesnt have the 2.73 gears. With the pref pack it has 3.31 gears, so i kind of expected lower mileage.
The auto with stock gears is supposed to get 31, manual 29. So i figured 27 and was in the ballpark.
Guys have been pulling 13.5-13.9 in the 1/4. Thats friggin scary to think your touching needing a cage...
