  • How was power delivery at high elevation? Car does look sharp in the rugged scenery.
  • Having a turbo car at those altitudes cannot hurt. :)

    The transmission is tuned to shift early to preserve fuel economy. So on steep climbs you have to use the paddle shifters and keep it in a lower gear. Then it climbs well, given the road had a lot of hairpin turns and you can't go very fast anyway. The turbo helps a lot so the power drop off isn't significant.
