If they knew how much I paid for mine they would be shocked...I need to call and cancel my whiteout FR-S order that I placed 4 months ago.

Remember look north. There are dealers willing to sell at invoice.
@tripjammer, sounds like you went through the same process I did! Looked locally got the $2K over MSRP treatment and then found a certain dealership in Denver!

I got great service from them and closed the deal before end of the year!

Hope to see everyone at a meet sometime soon!

A meet needs to happen soon. I know I will be there for next C&R because I'm going to night shifts which frees me up in the mornings.

Updates on the tune. I think she [the computer] is finally setting in on the new parameters... And I got a little taste of what it does. I definitely noticed the torque dip gone and, man, has it unleashed the beast. MPG seems to be insignificantly affected or not at all bc I didn't see a big drop... If you're driving normal, so I've been keeping the car running on the tuned map. I can't wait til I get e85. I'll be doing some logging first though.

Autoblip (aka synchro-rev) is not a big deal... Unless you have to set it at a desired point. I need to talk to joe about it because it only revs up about 400rpm up... Which is nothing when you're downshifting.

Ill probably be getting launch control when I get e85 for kicks.

I went by at about 430 after I left the gym. As for washing, two buckets, microfiber wash mit, waffle weave drying towels, and double soft towels for polishing with Cquartz Reload. All things bought from Jason who deals Adams goodies ^_^

if you want Jason's contact info shoot me a PM im going to grab some detailing goodies this weekend from him (finally have a flex polisher on the way and need to refill some polish and APC) if you have any questions about washing ask me or Got3n id really recommend the adams products.

As far as a group photo I think its still on for next sunday (10th) time yet to be determined and will probably be around Northstar mall (parking garages) unless me or ricepuddin find some other better spots
