Just a word of caution to any new RRS owner like me.
Took delivery of a 2010 RRS about 3 weeks ago and just today bought a tire pressure gauge. Can you imagine my surprise when the readings were 51 psi in all tires ...
Called the dealer and they explained that the car is shipped like that from England to avoid flat spots on long term siting cars. They recognized their mistake in not bringing the pressure down to the required values, which in my case (20") is 42 psi back and 38 psi front.
So, if you are a new owner and hasn't checked the tire pressure yet, do it.

I had the same thing on mine. It really affects ride quality. I was told that it was done to improve fuel economy.

Got that one beat - tried to remove my wheels to test fit a new set I got last week and to my surprise the lugs were torqued to 195 foot ****ing pounds. Had to use a socket and huge breaker bar to even budge them (that's after snapping a 3/8" extension).

Retorqued all 4 corners to 100 ft lbs. Check your lugs guys!! I will also be painting my calipers soon will take pics.
