The only downside is nobody is going to see the rear brakes with those wheel covers.

not necessarily, I have gotten as good if not better mileage out of my SE Sport packaged. 5 speed, than the SFE is rated at or people have gotten out of it, and mine looks better (well dirty from snow and salt atm) than the SFE

Well, I made the purchase this morning and put 250 miles so far. Everything looks good; Very comfortable, nice interior quality... I've decided not to worry about the wheels... I've averaged 37.2 on HWY. Before I took the delivery, dealer told me MPG will improve as the time goes on...is that right?

Mine increased as I learned to drive it more efficiently. Even my worst mpgs now are 5 more than when I first had it.

Agree, your most significant gains will come from your driving habits. Natural gains due to break in may be 2-3 mpg at most.
