Welcome to the forum glad to have you join us.
That's a weird bubble... definitely something that should be covered under warranty. Maybe your dealer will give you a deal and only charge you the difference in cost of the original to sport grille and not charge labor for removal/install.Just over 1,600 miles so far. I really like this car, and especially the trim as compared to my wife’s EX. The 2.0T has been great in the cold weather, very smooth and lots of kick when needed, but very chill when driving casually. I think the volume and tone of the exhaust is perfect for my tastes. Intake noise is a tad obnoxious for a stock airbox, but it mostly blends in to the background while driving.
Coming from a lighter, rear biased AWD, with considerable suspension and steering mods, my only complaint with handling is turn-in and tire selection. Planning a RSB to address the former, and I’ll upgrade the rubber down the road when needed.
Two main complaints so far are a clicking noise from inside the center dash, near the cubby, every time I brake/accel, and this weird bubble that developed in the chrome on the nose of the car after this past weekend. I’m going to install the sport grille anyway, so hopefully the dealer will work with me on a more efficient solution than strictly replacing this part. View attachment 4222
