Not worth it. A lot of money for no performance gain. Inferior gauges. Inferior front design. Inferior brake pads. Inferior wheels (staggered setup increases understeer).
Someone said that the...

My God, what is is with that gimmicky, IMO inferior "F sport" gauge?

The heated seats on my 2014 are plenty warm, and can be felt almost immediately.
Again, not an "F sport".

I have ventilated seats on my 2014.
Or is "F sport" just "assumed" around here?

Yeah, I didn't want to compromise the ride quality, so went with 18's. I also went with a "square" setup to minimize understeer. I weighed the tire/wheel package and it was 5 pounds less than the...

I like the lowness and tightness of the seats, but I'm even thinner than you are. I can see why bigger people would not like it, but for me, it's like getting sport seats without having to pay extra...

I must say, never before have I owned a car that seemed so delicate. I avoid touching anything on the interior, besides, or course, some of the controls.

People with better taste drive the base. The F-sport gage is worse, too.

Such wide tires, on such a wimpy car. You do realize that you will screw-up your handling, too, right?

I *always* crack some windows so that my car is not an oven in the Sun.

Unless rain is imminent, of course.

The Swiffer duster picks-up almost all dust without having to "rub" anything on your fragile interior plastics. Then I just use a damp cloth to gently clean spots where I sneezed on the gauges or...

Wow. Getting "F Sport" tacks-on six thousand dollars, after the "required options". So NOT worth it.
I wouldn't pay them even one thousand for it, without the active suspension.

It works fine for BMW. I have one. The oil got changed about every 13,000 miles, when the computer told me to. Synthetic oil isn't going to get "gunky" in 10,000 miles.

I'll be damned if I'll change synthetic oil after only 5,000 miles. Or after only one year, for that matter, as if that's some magic amount of time for oil chemistry.

Every 10,000, for me.

You see that sometimes, in very "cammy" engines. Obviously designed for best torque at high RPM's, in this case, but having jack-squat off the line is not good in a car with a slushbox tranny.

The characteristic of having a large rise in torque at high RPM's is not endemic to normally aspirated engines. It's a result of designing the engine to get a lot of peak HP, using camshaft profiles,...
