Question New 2011 GT Brembo

I just got a 2011 GT Brembo with the 3.73 gear. Great car, prior to this one I owned a 2002 Porsche Carrera (modified suspension) and a 2005 Infiniti G35 coupe. My GT feels great compared to my old Carrera. The only things that bother me is the Sync system, most of the time does not follow up the instruction requested, also the automatic dimming rear view mirror does not work. Twice I tooke my car to the dealer, and they don't find the issue. Anybody else with the same issue?. Any advice?
If you activate the Sync "vehicle health report", the way that you drive (example, if you race), could it be monitored for warranty purpose?

Welcome! It will take a little while to "get the hang of sync", system. It works great-when there isn't 'operator error', involved-(as was the case for me, before I really was able to use it successfully..!)

Re: New 2011 GT Brembo

Welcome aboard! Brembos are great but the new stock brakes are a big upgrade from the 05-09s They grab very well.

Thumbs up Re: New 2011 GT Brembo

Thanks Guys for the welcoming. Yes Is a great car. Before this I had a '02 Carrera with a modified suspension that I tracked. With the GT I don't miss it and I don't feel that I lose something, on the contrary.
