14% hp increase
22% tq incrase
weight relatively same
gas mileage slightly worse, but who buys these cars for the MPG lol
I agree, money no concern Gen 2 unless you prefer the look of the Gen1 than mod it out with all that money.

Don't need a backup camera, I have a rear view mirror. Don't need push to start, I can turn the key.
I have a simple $1500 mod that increases HP by 46 and increases torque by 58.
Weight is exactly the same as is MPG.
And with my tasteful cosmetic mods it looks better too.
And what's the price difference again?

Haven’t noticed undue buffeting in my 23 with windows down at the track, up to 123mph, but that’s with a helmet on…

I was mostly kidding but I do wonder why that thread caught so much traction.

This is the Atlanta Suburbs. No issue with economic development.

The NE part of the state, not so much here in the in the middle of the state.

And the NE part of the state leads you in to SW Missouri and NW Arkansas. Where there are even more great roads.

From my sport bike days, I know most of the good roads in the entire area.

When I was still in Tulsa, we commonly left Tulsa around sunrise, road to Eureka Springs, had lunch and road back in the same day.

OK just got back from Watkins Glen, and *damn*, the air buffeting/noise is very REAL with the 2nd gen. Shoulda worn earplugs... Helmholtz resonance with both windows all the way down, over the entire length of the straightaway from top of the esses to the chicane, annoying as all f.
FWIW the new '23 saw 130mph at end of straight, old car only 120mph! I'll take the wind noise if it comes with +10mph at the Glen!

There are a few solutions is think.

Honestly just probably make this type of thing yourself, stick it on with 3m and away you go - no need for this to be carbon fibre.
