Your car probably falls into a certain tax bracket because of its efficiency, therefore bypassing fuel saving systems is tax evasion. 
We should get into the sympathy business.  There is a killing to be made.

3 months and still no issues... This is starting to be boring!


Also, Sweet Jesus the tuning scene for this car is ramping up.  An intake, exhaust, and tune can now get you 400hp!!!

They can also remove the speed limiter, put the traction management into an all off mode, and add varying amounts of exhaust pops & bangs depending on the position of the DNA knob.

Please request the maximum possible quantity of pops & bangs. I'll bet Dakota still makes more.

I can retard the shit out of the timing and turn the exhaust into a flame thrower.

Flames come standard on good running rx8s... Melted exhausts come standard on poorly running ones

I bet your timing chain isn't nearly as stretched as Dakota's. It sounds like a diesel at idle.

Being proud that your 9,600 mile old vehicle hasn't had issues is like being psyched that your 9 month old baby doesn't have cancer.

No. Any vehicle that makes it to 9,600 without issues is hardly special or inherently reliable.  It's still a brand new car, my guy.

That is one pretty little hatch.  My wife would love something like that; in that exact colour.
