The car looks great!

I know it's early on and you're not going above 4k, but what's the MPG so far?

40 miles of quick around town driving has only netted me 21.9 avg mpg (according to onboard computer so accuracy is suspect).

Lavaman, a new BRZ recipient said the gear shift lever on his car is vibrating and you can definitely feel it with your hand.....how about your FRS?

Hopefully it's like my tC where you have ~30sec after turning car off and before opening the door that there is still power to the windows etc. I forgot to try that when I test drove it.

With 101 miles on the odometer, I can safely say mine does not do that.
