yup, because the weight differences between the EU I6 and US I6 is like 100lbs or so.

Wasn't this whole "please buy the 4-cylinder" fiasco disproven as some journalist BS?

The yellow would do just fine since it isn't a pastel sort of tone.

I am fine with that from the pictures. I liked the RS1 yellow in picture but when I saw one in real life I was no longer a fan since it was too yellow.

I'm wondering whether you've acquired a subconscious attraction to your avatar... As your taste for yellow is finely tuned... Too yellow or too pale won't hit the spot..
