I find it very easy to heel-and-toe. The only car I've had in 24 years that was easier than this one is my '01 ZX3. It only took me a couple of days to fully adjust to the 2012 from the 2001, however. The main difference is that the gas pedal is *slightly* forward under braking, as Zillon mentioned.
