Picked up my 2012 Hot Lava IQ last Saturday after one test drive I was in love.



Traded my 05 RX8 in on it, repair bills and the 16-18 mpg were killing me and now that 93 is over $4 here I had to make a change.

I was surpized how well the IQ drives and how peppy it is, starting out in S and then switching over to D once I am up to speed make traffic and merging a non issue. Lots of space for the driver and passenger and the high seating make getting in and out a dream compared to the RX8 and make my back feel a lot better. With the back seats folded down I have more usable space then the RX8 and childs seats fit correctly in the IQ.

The only thing I really wish is that it had cruise control and maybe a little more umph from the speakers.

Might splurge on some wheels and the rear swaybar later this year.

Love that color....I've had mine for about a month and couldn't wait on ordering the trd springs and sway bar, IQ shift knob and alloy wheel locks.



Welcome and happy modding/spending:rolleyes:

there maybe audio functions you are not aware of,if you depress and hol the SSP button you will find more audio settings that make a huge difference.
