hai friends welcome to the site and very happy to meet you all.* The car is a 5-speed, and the only option was having the dealer install cruise control. This is my first new car in about a dozen years, and I am planning to use it just for commuting purposes. I am an avid autocrosser (I have a Miata for that), so the car will not stay stock for long. I have a handful of upgrades planned that will make the car more fun to drive without ruining its road manners.
