It was kinda weird to drive at first since ive owned mostly honda's. I kept getting the throttle cut, till i found the traction control option. Car runs smooth and awesome. LOVE IT

Its Stick. No dead spot. The ECU cuts the throttle for traction control.

Huh that's weird I thought those wheels are on a 2010 model cause mine is a 2011 and it has the gunmetal dark wheels.

REVHRD4,
Did you happen to notice if all the Koups on the lot had the same wheels as yours? I'm beginning to think the dealership swapped them with a sedan, or the factory messed up. Not that I'd complain, because I actually like your wheels better than mine, but yours is the first Koup I've seen with sedan wheels on it.
