Thanks to everyone for their replies. I'm definitely feeling the love!
I took some pics the other day but haven't gotten them off the camera. Nothing fancy, but I'll post some soon.
Thanks for the info on the transmission/engine braking. Like neapolitan said, all the cars I've driven before have been different, feeling like I'm coasting in neutral when off the throttle. I see how keeping the car in gear could help with performance.
Grentz thanks for the tip about the kick down mode. I was wondering what that was when I read it!
I guess I feel better about being a little less conservative with the car now too, since the manual says 3500 is the limit... I've been keeping it below 2200 or so, but I guess I've got more room to play with.

Thanks again!
