It doesn't matter to me. The existence of the one negates any value of the entire product line ( the advanced curmudgeon classes at the senior center are really paying dividends now ).

doing

I'd just want to provide immediate, negative reinforcement for bad behavior.
The 'high-performance' thing is obscene to me. It's personal.

Noted. What does eveyone else think?

I thought it interesting the Hyundai tasked Giorgetto Giugiaro with designing a pony car in 1974.

The body line development and pixelated LEDs suggests they have the 'Paric Dressmaker' aspect under control.

Update during interstate trip with no mirrors and wheel spats

87 degrees outside- driving into 3mph headwind according to weather app

Average speed fluctuating between 70-75 mph because of many cars on road, so average USA speeds but not western speeds

Mpg average is 64.8. So far that’s pretty nice for going over 70 into a slight wind!

Those are some nice mpg figures... wish my Prius could do that. To put things in perspective, today I went on a 230 mile road trip. It was mostly highway cruising around 65 mph. I was happy to get 55 mpg average. But you're 10 mpg beyond that!

That's damn impressive. To think, we could have had cars doing this 30+ years ago.

Second uodate. Same interstate route back. This time 11 mph cross wind. Cruise control set to 75-76 and I only got 54.5 mpg on the way back up north

Also in both of these, air conditions was running at the coldest temp possible but a fan speed of 1 with recirculate.

So still a few mods away from the holy grail of 60mpg at 80mph
