I'm not buying the hype on F/I with this car. Seems like the main people hyping the F/I solutions own/drive faster cars. I feel like with the cost of a well setup F/I you could've just had a faster...

Go with 2014+, less issues. Other than that, personally I would just find the cleanest base FRS I could - the higher trims really don't add much to the car IMO. I would try to start the car cold to...

Dave-ROR my bad, I forgot to mention I sat in a 2SS (non 1LE). Sounds like I'd probably like the 1LE much better, didn't know they came with Recaros. I'll keep an eye out for one.

Spark plugs are a PITA. I'd recommend just doing it right and jacking up the engine a bit, unless you have *really* small hands. I did the over the top method and seemed to take forever.

Fits are great! Have one for puttering in traffic, and it works perfect for that. Really good FWD momentum car as well, I'd love to take it to the track but it's not in the greatest shape.

The AT is great if you aren't worried about extracting the utmost performance. It shifts pretty fast, just a little slower off the line & more drivetrain loss.

I don't see where the debate is. 86 + Ace makes more power than a *stock* s2k everywhere. I doubt it could pull on an s2k with IHE but would love to be proven wrong.
