    $299 for my front sides to match back, and windshield clear. Pinnacle f1 ceramic, all.

    I'm certain that average won't hold up but we're off to a good start so far
    Congrats on the new car. I bet that Machine Gray and parchment interior really pops.

    How in the heck are people pulling these numbers? I have a very light foot, and after 2,000 miles have yet to get a tank over 24 MPG in my GT-R.

    Everyone's driving conditions are different.

    Yeh, I guess.

    But I'm a really conservative driver. When the guy is pulling an extra 4MPG on mountainous roads...

    Maybe I just need something to whine about. Gotta keep the skill set intact.

    Enjoy your new whip. It*s exactly what I*d get if I splurged atm, but with black leather (hoping grey becomes an option)...
    the fronts are DEFINITELY getting tinted to match the rears and from what I've been reading on here, 20% seems to be about the magic number.
    highly considering getting the windshield tinted, I'm just concerned about what that might do for the HUD image.
    If I tinted the windshield I'd probably do a 70%

    sure.
    cash price for vehicle was $33,681
    after TTL, total was $36,858.62 ($250 of that was the retractable cargo cover)
    minus $750 loyalty rebate

    $36,108.62

    coming down the mountain means a lot of 'off throttle' driving so I'm sure that helps the average.
    plus at the moment I'm babying the crap out of the car just to break it in.
    Once I get past 600 or 700 miles and let the little turbo spool I'm sure it'll be a totally different story.

    Maybe his car has something wrong with it, just like this forum said my 2015 did. Yup. It must be defective.

    ^ Man the front plates mess with the Mazda Styling mojo a bit. Still looks good though.

    The turbo provides the torque down low, so it's actually fully spooled and producing that 310 ft/lb way down in the powerband. Unless you're pulling hills or giving gas to pass, the turbo isn't spooling, and the gas mileage is great. I really wanna see a graph of the Air/Fuel for one of these things. I suspect it runs rather rich from the factory for detonation protection, and if so, more power and even better mpg can be gotten with a little lean out...I wanna tune one of these things sooooooooooo bad, but I just can't and won't cough up the coin to do it with this 2019 model...

    I just drive like I always have. The 2.5NA is just gutless and it ended up working too hard to come close to EPA ratings, unless I drove insanely slow and lethargically.

    The above mpg picture is from me driving from the Missouri/AR state line to Springdale, AR, then back north to just south of Springfield, and then back to the Missouri/AR state line. PLenty of hills, 80mph, etc.
