    I saw it there too and really liked the color, but not worth a premium.

    Sonny and I picked our 30AE's last week. Chance Asue at Tustin Mazda took care of us. I have to say, I think Sonny's RF is that extra bit sexier than my ST.
    Neither will be significantly modded. Both of us have many experience with trying to make a comfy street car also work on track like a race car. We always end up with something that does neither well. Besides, we have a min-fleet of race cars and fast HPDE cars here to drive. So yeah, these are both destined for daily life.
    Trying to talk Sonny into some Eibach springs that will drop it about .8". I plan to install the original Xida ACE protos with an updated harness for the new touchscreen controller. Sonny maybe 17x8 6UL's. I plan to run 245/40 Conti ECS on 17x9 Charcoal 6UL. OFT reflash for mine as soon as Shiv has the ND2 tune finalized. Mine will stay otherwise stock. Oh yeah, Sonny doing some clear bra with his room mate that knows how to lay vinyl. I'm going big with full ceramic pro, clear bra but doing full paint correction (wet sand, etc) first.

    Driving both, ST definitely has more jiggle than the RF. Club Bilsteins have too much high speed compression, or maybe it's too little N2O volume. RF jiggles less or rough pavement with top down. RF top up feels pretty much like a coupe, super solid and jiggle all but disappears.


    Mine. Didn't let dealer wash it or attach front plate.

    Smart move on the not modifying much. I wouldn't have either, if I were in your shoes as you said plenty others to pick from why mess with these. I do have to ask though, why wouldn't you let the dealer wash the car? Just curious.

    Did not want them to scratch the paint. The porters are not exactly detailers.

    30AE

    It’s lovely. I do hope a removable hardtop is available for this model at some point.
