    These cars are good in wet and with the right tires (snow tires) they handle very well in the snow
    The only issue i had was the turn signal would cut out when i was using it, the dealer fixed it and havent had an issue since
    I like the short throw and really want to get the arm rest extender
    Your area will play a large part in how much it could cost, dont really have a great answer but i would say maybe around 26k
    Not familiar with nj
    So far i have had mine for over a year with no issues at all, and i drive it A LOT
    The break in is in the manual, basically its for the first 1000 miles, dont rev it past 4k and no cruise control, once you get it read the manual and you will be fine
    I wouldnt mod til after the break in, but i enjoy stage 2 which is a downpipe exhaust and a tune, i also got an air intake which makes the turbo sound better, and an aos system is a nice one too.
