Whats the point in the scalloped bumper? It would look way better if those weren't there and it just flowed straight across
Aggression, man! I've got 215(?) HP, I must have a mean face. It's stupid, bit I can't see it from inside. I may address that later.

Opinion seemed to favor the new front. It's nice in profile, that's about it.

I like the 86 front more than the FR-S.

Am I alone?

Silent, so far. If they do appear, I won't care.

How does the steering feel compared to your 2013? Is it more numb?

The feel is still there, just a small step removed from the FR-S. I read they have changed the rates for straight line stability. It does feel a bit different, but not in any major way. Need someone who races to try one.
