Looks very much like a Lexus or Hyundai Genesis Coupe now. Not sure how I feel about it compared to the current model yet. I'll consider buying one if they actually upgrade it with an STI turbo model...

Those cars still have scoops but they're just integrated into the front air dam and run under the hood. On a car like this with a low hood, I would think it'd still need an opening unless they raise...

Yes, those are definitely Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires. And they appear to be 225/40/18, which will enhance the comfort/stability over bumps and give it more grip while still being agile. With the...

Obviously the 2.0L was decided due to tax reasons in some countries and also slightly lower costs in achieving a higher redline and the lack of a multi-stage intake also lowers cost and complexity a...

I've been sayin' all along... they should have used a 2.4L! The Boxer type engines are not penalized by more displacement so unlike inline 4 cylinder engines, they do not need to add a balance shaft....

I also had this happen on mine after a lot of highway driving on a very rainy and cooler (50ish degrees) night. I'd say it's either the pads not breaking through the wet surface well enough or not...

I think mine feel the same way mistople. It's not abnormal. In fact, even the Evo X Brembo brakes felt kind of like that. It's almost a sticky feeling. I ordered some Endless pads and fluid so we'll...

Yeah, that app is so worthless it's practically a scam. I can't believe they actually charge money for it. And they haven't bothered updating/fixing it at all.

My friend still has one that was never maintained outside of occasional oil changes. I was shocked that it was still running well for how many miles of neglect it had.

Yeah, I had read that too which is disappointing. So basically it can only be selected when stopped but it can still be seen while driving? Or is it just a log that records previous g-force?
