I don't remember many people complaining about the 1st gen steering feel. If the 2nd gen steering is an entirely new setup, then it makes sense they were trying to achieve a different result.

Oil 5w30 is better compared to the 0w20 for hotter climates and/or track use. It was mentioned in the car's manual too.

Not sure if it really matters and as you said you were leaving time on the table, but the S209 was much faster up to this point (1:10 vs. 1:17). Maybe weight difference (400 lbs.) counts after all?
