Short Answer....No. This car is a beast stock. I was one of the first to own one in the US, ordered and 10 months later got my 2016 MK3. I have done one upgrade, rear spoiler blue RS gel inserts to complement my black RS. Is it always "ON" no, but when it is, look out. S2000 was the latest victim tonight. I went around the corner going 50 and by the time I hit Benjamin, he was a quarter mile behind. Love this car and who wouldn't.
