General Information

Tiburon Tuscani
Owned since brand new in December 2006. Only 91,000 km's as of September 2017. I nearly traded it in for a 2017 BRZ with the performance pack, but I honestly liked the way my car felt all-around better, which really surprised me.

I've *almost* done every mod I want on the car, and it's just about perfect for me. Handling is really balanced (just a few more tweaks to alignment at a track day this summer, and it should be perfect), power is proportional to the traction available, throttle response is almost immediate. There are only a few performance mods left that I'm interested in doing, and they've all been purchased - just waiting on delivery or installation. Other than that, I'll only be doing minor cosmetic mods / updates to keep it fresh.

Only thing I wish this car had that it doesn't (and I can't add) is steering wheel controls for the radio...
