cheers guys

just noticed the uk spec doesnt come with a spare tyre!
not sure if i prefer this way.. cant really go wrong with an actual tyre .. plus no doubt quicker and less hassle to just jack the car up quickly and swap out.

appears my new car has done 12 miles pre delivery... at an average of 9.7mpg .. me thinks someone's been doing more than 4000rpm in it!

Sweet exhaust tips, you should trade it to one of us in the states so you can have that "USDM" look!

If the car runs at idle, it lowers the MPG also, right off the truck it's about 5 miles on the odo, 12 is nothing.
