Thanks for the emissions warranty info. I didn't know about that before. Maybe that had something to do with why they were so accommodating.

I had a conversation with the service advisor and explained that this seemed like a defect, not something to charge for and asked if he could do anything. He said he'd check with his boss. ...

I've got a strange coating on my cupholder and coin holder in the center between the two seats. It' definitely peeling. I'm not sure if it's rubber or something else, but it's not the plastic.

That would be a bit nose heavy in corners, wouldn't it?
Fun in a straight line though!!!

If it were mine, I'd lower it for performance and aesthetics.

under maintenance or warranty?

Was this under the maintenance agreement or an extended warranty?

Travis,
Is your 1.5" front / 0.75" rear drop measured from sport suspension to current or from non-sport to current? I'm probably looking for 1" / 0.5" off of sport.
