Might as well mention that I am into my 6th year with the car, no issues during year 5, ran like a top. I do see that the suspension setup is hard on tires. There is a reason it turns in so well, but, that castor does eat the inside of the tires, as I maximize that handling and turn in almost everyday, I love it when civilians follow me into a corner, I never touch the brakes....wakey wakey.

I will need tires towards the end of this year again, so approx. 3 years on a set. There is quite the rumble now at low speed, as they have worn down and gotten harder

Fuel economy has stayed consistent, for what that is worth.

That brake issue is still there, which really is a piss off considering how nice the package is for the most part, almost ruins the experience.
