Also, as others have said the instructions recommend disconnecting the battery. I'm not sure why people don't want to take this quick and simple step. If it said open hood, would you skip...

Completely agree. Hard to argue with their consistency on the track, which is why I bought this car.

There are a lot of good comments in here and I'm basically going to echo many of them. I've run these GYs on a road course and on autocross. For the abuse I put them through in both of those...

If you got it mid March 2017 the there's a good chance it's in that window. That's a pretty early car. The process to check it is somewhat extensive. You have to get the trans temp up and then check....

Manual says don't drove below 40F. Having driven a few times in the 50s I frankly wouldn't do anything less than 50 on these tires. Not only do to risk damage to the tires you compromise traction. If...

There was a TSB for trans overfill and one saying that the track level mention in the manual was an error. Check you car's build date and you may not need to do anything.

Actually, I don't think you can even tell that from your VIN. The plant produces several different vehicles. You'd need to know the VIN of the very first 2017 vehicle to come out of the plant in...

The first A10s off the line were in the range of 186xxx. Cars built a month later were in the 192xxx range. So I would say roughly your car was built in late March or early April.

There were CTF cars that were produced before the actual first week of production. Some end up being put up for sale. So yes, there are cars before the ones produced the week of 2/6.

M6s started production before the A10s. First week of production for the A10s was 2/6/17 and the first VIN was somewhere around 18602x. So any 2017 M6 produced before 2/6 would have a lower VIN...
