06 2.5i owner here has a question for you guys.. how is the throttle response on the 08s? If you're in neutral and jam the pedal to the floor and lift off as fast as possible, do the rpms go up or does the engine just burble a little?
Thats what my 06 has always done "burble", just curious if they improved this. As for the rpms holding when shifting, my 06 has always done that on the 1st to 2nd shift especially. I've gotten used to these little quirks and don't even notice them anymore really.
That white hatch looks sweet, get that sport grill on there asap!
