Welcome to the forum! Put your car, sparkman's Red 1LT RS, and my White 1LT side by side, and we would have a pretty patriotic set of triplets haha! Same wheels too! Good choice to go with the 1.4L, I know I love mine. Haven't driven the 1.8L but it's probably fine too. Which transmission do you have, auto or manual? Either way you can't really go wrong, enjoy!
