Be sure to get some good snow tires within the next few months! did i corrupt someone else? Remember you have emissions testing & shooting flames out the tailpipe isnt good for emissions. My buddy has an 8 with a catless exhaust . The drone at highway speeds are pretty bad. He has a black cherry mica shinka edition. He let me drive it at an auto-x & yeah, i want one, so does the wife. Heck even my wifes cousin has 2 8's. Its definitely on the list for future cars!

My phone didn't send me any emails and it looks like I missed a lot on my thread lol

It is incredibly fun to drive and the handling is really ridiculously amazing.
I do already miss my fuel economy, but that's fixed by a 9k redline.

And I am definitely going to need some snow tires for it I know already, in this annoying weather this week I've only driven it when it's dry out twice now. And it likes to try and kick the ass end out just going in a straight line in the rain... So needless to say I'm pretty scared of winter coming so soon.

nice car! I have a 06 a while back and was a fun car. that's awesome if you're getting 22 mpg, I could never get better than 18 out of mine, even cruising at 65 for two hours. and yes, it does say it needs premium fuel. also remember not to use synthetic oil and keep a spare quart with you. It's designed to burn the oil as it drives so you will need to top it off every couple weeks.

as far as aftermarket goes, there is a decent amount available, but it's not cheap at all.

Search around now for a local shop that will work on it as well. most places won't touch them besides a dealer.

Forgot to add.....
On the regular tires, take it real easy in the rain. I've read that they're a bit touchy in the wet.

I think it's on its second set of tires at least...

Rain is it's best friend though... In a big empty parking lot for drifting

They're 5x114.3, and I wanna paint them black metallic. But if I find a good deal on some nice 20's or different 18's I'll tell you first that I'm gonna get rid of them.
