This is what I will do. I like the halo look on the black grey paint. It highlights the lettering.

Now working on heel toe and for street driving. the gas pedal is much lower than the brake. Hardest car to rev match that I've been in. I have read it gets easier on the track since the brake goes lower due to stronger brake pressures.

Anyone's else experience this?

Better sell it obviously not for you.

Don't even joke Tasman. 😂 the higher revs seem to make the throttle more sensitive to the blips. I will just need to stay above 5k where the sounds are intoxicating.

Not a problem I mind having.

I had ppf over oem graphics, had it replaced after a couple years due to yellowing and the graphics on the bumper came up with the film.

The rev match initially takes a little bit to get used to until you realize the more you go for it the better you will be, don't even think about it. Drive it like a Honda vtech and you won't have any probs rev matching.

The prev owner tied off the vacuum lines off so it's always in sport mode exhaust wise. I may connect them again to see how it sounds. Right now there is a slight drone.

I second the Sharkewerks bypass. Very happy with how it sounds on mine. No drone whatsoever. Sounds pretty stock up until about 4000 RPM and from there it's awesome to hear

Sharky's bypass does sound good over 4K. But for me, still a bit too tame. Mine will go up for sale once I get a replacement.

Put a bunch of miles on her today and I think I will keep the GMG installed. When I get to the point when I'm looking for a change I will go 4.1 Sharkwerks and add the sharkie exhaust, but I don't see that happening anytime soon.

Looking forward to it. We will be at Werks and Concorso this year.
