  1. Crusty Old Shellback

    From a '12 R Spec to a '15 5.0

    Well if you look in the '09-'14 forum, you can read the details of why I'm now in a '15 5.0 Impire Slate Gray Genesis. Impressions so far are a smoother ride, better handling, more comfortable seat. The bells and whistles will take me a bit to get used to them. But I think I'm going to be happy...

  8. 2012 r spec sedan steering lock question?

    I used to have a 2009 4.6 and when you did push start you could hear the steering wheel unlocking. With my 2012 r spec I do not get that sound. With my 2009 if you turned the wheel with car off you could feel the wheel lock. My 2012 does not do that. Did the r spec just not have this option?
