Been looking for a couple months and found what I wanted late last week - black/black 09 manual, recaros, bone stock, loaded here in CA. Mileage was a little higher than I would have preferred (25K) but given there were only 535 manuals in '09 and the car was well-maintained, new tires, etc. I pulled this morning. Picking it up tonight or tomorrow.

Appreciate all the info share on this forum and the responses I've already received; it's been very helpful. No doubt I'll have more questions along the way.

Plan is to leave it as is for a bit and then decide. Do like the look of the black grills, though...

Thanks again,
jb

I give you 6 months before you pulley and tune it, just come over to the dark side starting day 1.

Great find! I had no idea that the 09's were that rare!

Is there a link for any published production specs?
