Well my car is a manual and there isn't that much difference in effort and smoothness on/off, hot/cold, hence the question.

I found the shifter to be incredibly stiff and notchy when changing gears in a dealer's showroom demonstrator, to the point of being a deal-killer. So a question for owners: Does it feel considerably...

Huh? That will be news to 15 million Ontario residents. Not to mention those Canadians living in a few other provinces. Front plates are mandatory for most Canadians.

I read somewhere that generic OBD2 readers are not nearly as specific in their diagnostic readings as the manufacturers' own tools - anyone know more about this?

Impressive power for only a catback, had my chair vibrating when I watched it through my A/V setup.

It will be interesting to see if there is much drone at highway cruising speeds.

I'd love to see a thorough comparison review with the BRZ/GR86, Mk 8 GTi, and new Civic Si. Similar price, overlapping markets, probably a lot of cross-shoppers.

It's funny how most of these vids don't have any in-cockpit recordings - do most of these owners prefer to let others drive their cars so they can just stand on the street and listen to it drive by?

Great video, thanks. I just wish all shots were outdoors. That pavement grey looks terrific indoors. The trueno blue looks a bit too purply here, maybe it's better outside.
