There is is an increase in noise.

I didn't notice any additional vibrations from the RMM, although I'm not sure how much stronger the aftermarket mounts are versus the e-Focus.

Nice review Joeywhat... In your review you talked about the gearbox and how it shifts smoother and the traffic/first gear buck when you're on and off the gas... Do you have the 5-speed or the DCT? From what you said about the 1st gear buck it sounds like the DCT... I always thought the sloppiness in the up and downshifts and slow speeds was engine movement.

Guess this gets added to the list of things to get... Hey Aaron, the color option "Silver Metallic" is that close to the Sterling Grey color of our cars or is it a lighter silver? I would love to have one that is either close or Sterling Grey with a black bushing.

Silver metalic is like an "average" silver car produced today. It is not color matched to the focus colors, however it should be close.
