    Would you rather "misguided JDM enthusiasts"?

    I don't care what you call them. Talking about street racing = a no-no on any decent car forum.

    Nobody has talked about street racing aside from others trying to bait them.

    Seriously, I would like the clutch pedal to be an inch or two higher than the brake. I am 5'6" so I have to have the seat further up in order to get the clutch all the way down. That way, I could sit further back. If anyone knows if a solution, please let me know. I did buy something from from Discovermymobility but it does not fit.

    At this time I'm getting a 1" thick piece of rubber and attach it to the pedal with the 2 sided super sticky tape and zip tie it. If that doesn't work, then I'll just make do and sit closer than I would like.

    (The clutch pedal was higher on the Fox body Mustangs btw)

    I'm not crazy about the shifter placement. Also, my Mini was much easier to heel-toe. The rattling windows when they're only cracked is annoying. The crappy damping is lame. The off-gassy plastic smell is awful when the car is hot inside. Other than that, it's the most fun car I've ever had and the stuff I don't like is, for the most part, fixable.

    I hear lots of people talk about the rattling windows, but I've never had that problem. Curious if there was a change made.

    I'm completely nit-picking here, but i'd like the high beams to be push, not pull. That's about it.

    I also have never had a single time where the windows rattled. I do have them tinted, but I would doubt that would be a factor. Mine was delivered in October.

    I've got zero rattle. Whole car is about as tight as a drum actually.

    i'm not quite sure why they raised the cargo floor in the back. actually, it's probably so the seats fold flat. i'd preferred the setup in my '11 SES. Thankfully, they improved a lot of little things from the old one. Like a glovebox light. And the volume control on the steering wheel.

    Yeah it's just the first 1/4 of the window travel where it rattles.

    Slight buzz occasionally coming from drivers side vent, comes with engine resonance around 2500-3000rpm.

    Will get it checked out at the 3k service

    I had the same thing. My vent just needed to be pulled out then pushed back in. It doesn't take much effort to just pull out the vent, comes out easy.

    You know the cargo floor is adjustable and has a lower position right?
