Clear Bra complete and now just putting in the break-in mileage. While we do, keep letting us know folks what YOU want to see done/tested on ND2. First impressions one page back still holding true, it's very quiet, it's very smooth, it's not very exciting in stock form but it's an amazingly plush ride for a 'club' edition. All the plush/smooth stands out as rather different from ND1 Clubs, the valving on bilsteins this time around is softer and the smoother dual mass flywheel engagement adds to the impression of a smoother car, and throttle response is also smoother. Is all this 'smooth' good or bad? That's a subjective question I will leave here for others to debate. If ND1 was more like a discount/lighter Porsche Cayman in feel, ND2 has gone more Merc SLK. With ND1 Mazda said they were seeking a younger demographic, with ND2 it seems they are polishing off the sporty edges for an older demographic again. But again, still below extended redline, will explore that more after mileage is complete.
Once we do, will be testing ND2 baseline on our dyno, and see what it does with our headers and other exhaust goodies. What else should we test?
