efficiencyjunkie: You may want to look at the flow rate between your K&N and the OEM part for your car. At least with Volkswagen cars, the OEM parts offer better flow, and actually offer protection. As in, K&N filters have been confirmed as causing massive damage to the cars that used them because they offered little to no filtration. Just something you may want to look into.
Otherwise, get yourself a scanguage and pump those tires up!
As for that car coming in a manual, I had no idea that it was offered with anything other than an automatic. Makes the car a lot more interesting if you ask me...
*notice the Green shift up and down lights for max mpg! It actually helps to shift before the light goes off. Also, if you are giving the car too much gas, and it needs a lower gear, it will tell you to shift down.
