OH SHIT BOYS I'M OFFICIAL!~

Just drove it back from Lafayette to Houston, saved 6k over buying in Houston so was a no brainer. Fantastic experience end to end with dealership they're great :) Car drove like a DREAM whole way home. Averaged 28.2mpg's which is double the M2 or X5 lol so this is def the road trip car going forward.

Such a fun car, and I don't hate the stereo like I thought I would. Listened to streamed YouTube all the way home and while it could use a bit more bass it wasn't horrid to the point of 'omg I need to replace it now'.

Before I signed anything I drove it around a bit and checked for crunchy 2nd gear - transmission feels great so I drove off with it. No issues on way home, car just drives like a dream!

Excited to have secured one of these cars, I'm looking forward to break in and the journey ahead!

LOVE THE COLOR I ended up with - looks better in person than any picture imo.

Happy motoring everyone!!

Ha I think I called them when I was hunting but it was higher than sticker if it's the same dealership. Good luck with your search when you're ready! :)

Just a heads up
I've had 2 dealers offer me Type R at $1k off msrp, But I was shopping for a 2020 model as rather wait for new model this time of year. Dealers want to move stock by years end so give it a try if your OK with 2019.
Got it for 35750 so I'm happy with the price I secured. In town wanted 4k over. No frills no add on no nothing just that price and TT&L - was very painless overall and got a good rate too on the note

Some one else might have said it already, but take a peek at the suspension before you take off. Dealers are notorious for forgetting to removed the orange shipping blocks for the springs.
It won't ruin the car but it does change the ride a but, at least I found it to. I had remembered to check after hearing about it on the forums but then quickly forgot because when i arrived to pick up my cars 3 hours away i was too damn excited lol.
Huh good call out - I didn't hear or feel anything 'off' but I'll check for sure thanks!

Congrats man!!! I traded in my Evo X last night and picked up a CW CTR. It's a really awesome car, you're going to love it.
I came from and loved my old EVO and this is the closest car I've found to that / I feel it's actually 'better' balanced. Also having 6th gear for the freeway over the GSR is so nice. Cruising @ 80 doesn't sound like a jet engine lol
