Yes, I think a trip to the dealer is in my near future. The clutch just doesn't do like it does in other car that we've had when letting it out in first gear. The car really does die, and it's not from popping the clutch. It's almost like the car is in 3rd gear.
Depends on your rpm's... If your RPM's are dropping to close to 1,000 it's going to bog down. I keep having this "discussion" with my wife, who seems to believe that the correct way to drive the car is to always shift between 1K and 2K RPM.... which is going to keep you on the low end of the power curve but it will certainly keep your fuel efficiency high..

First, RS is a visual package and can be on an SS
SS/RS (Like in your own Sig... )
LT/RS


And swapping out the front end means nothing to the dealer, it's still under warranty. I have done it myself, dealer actually liked it and said they should have all come with that front end.

I know all about the RS package. I noticed that her Avatar wording was for a V6 but a pic with an SS front end.
