Spend thousands on improving it to end up "ruining" it lol. I sometimes wonder why people think they can do a better job than the biggest car company in the world with a multi million dollar R&D budget, where is the facepalm smiley when you need it? :) Seems like Toyota did a decent job straight out of the box thankfully.

Kind of pleased they did it so we didn't have to!

Although I will say this isn't always the case, when I was ready to sell my M135i looked into Birds and with some upgrades they can completely transform the car with vast improvements in day to day use. Didn't go for it in the end as was done with the car but some aftermarket can make stunning improvements.

I thought it was a very balanced assessment. Too many YouTubers would mod their car then claim it was the best thing ever with no downsides. - "Transforms the car!" So its nice to see SG acknowledge that although their mods do make a difference for track driving, that the compromises don't really make it worthwhile on a road car.

These guys clearly don't learn. They did the exact same process with their FRS, dumped masses of money on it, got the hump with it and sold it.

Surely you aren't suggesting they would deliberately make bad decisions just for views....
