Event data recorder could be a blessing and a burden if 50 start mandating it in court cases.Page 10-11 You don't want steering wheel mounted audio/whatever controls. They are a pain in the ass when you're actually driving the car hard. I replaced the wheel on my car to get rid of all that.

Mobil 1 makes a 0W-20 good for 15,000 miles. One oil change a year with filter on top!Looking at the specs section in the owner's manual, I didn't see any reference to synthetic oil.

?!? huh? this is not a race car. How are wheel mounted buttons in the way? And IF you are at the track...you wouldn't have the radio or cruise or whatever on anyway...they need to get with the 21st century and provide the basic amenities that virtually every other car manufacturer does...
Steering wheel mounted controls allow you to keep your eyes on the road when you're doing what probably 95% of buyers will be doing which is going back and forth to work or getting groceries or whatever else you do with a normal car...like this one.
