Good afternoon everyone ! So I've been impatiently waiting for a tune to be released for 2017 models, so I decided to email a few vendors. Stratified, Mountune and Cobb themselves and all 3 said a tune should be released fairly soon ! I'll attach a screen shot of the email from the Cobb rep.

Ya there should be little to no difference from the 15/16 to the 17'. I think they just removed Tangerine Scream and added the Big Bird Yellow.

Be sure to run the engine in properly before you go nuts.

But then, go nuts.
I'm going to buy it when it releases but I'm waiting till after my first oil change to do anything to the car, I want to enjoy the car in its stock from and also be able to appreciate the tune when it comes time to use it

But the Tangerine Scream has grown on me...
Haha to be honest I'm not a fan of either color, I have Kona Blue but if they had the grey/metallic color I would've taken that

Definitely not hard to enjoy the car in stock form, especially if you're like me and it's the fastest car you've owned. Handles like a dream too!

Magnetic Metallic is arguably the best color in my eyes other than MAYBE (it's close) Performance Blue (when I bought my car my 2 stipulations were it MUST have Recaros and be Performance Blue)

I'm coming over from imports and I would say power wise it's on par with my s2000, of course has signifantly more torque due to the turbo and it being FWD, but the handling is what really surprised me, I probably invested 2000$ into suspension alone on my s2k and the focus is very similar , unless I'm making a U-turn lol ? it turns like a boat in that situation

The car's handling is what makes it what it is. In a straight line we get dusted by plenty of cars, but hanging with us in the turns is hard if WE know what we are doing. However part of the awesome handling is the nimbleness of the car; due to lock-to-lock being 1.8 turns of my wheel (The 2016/2017 should be 2.4 or so...so your car will do better than mine) making a U-turn is awful since the turning radius is so wide.

I heard all the complaints about the turn radius and was wondering why my '17 didn't feel that bad, and now I know why. Thanks!

Totally agree with the nimbleness. It hides its weight quite well
