it has been exaggerated a bit but im using a vtec now and the brakes just dont bite at all. they seem lazy and dont give any confidence. the tires are the stock goodyears (of course thats a big reason for this).

The latest Vtecs have Leather Ulphostery also right ( or is that Optional ? )
Yes, the Leather Uphoistlery is included in the 10th Anniversary Edition.

Though I never thought initially about driving out of town, It is coming to me again and again , another 2K driving in offering over the next weekend. During that period, I plan to drive different segments at different speeds but keeping one constant speed for each segment, so that we can see at what speed do we get the best mileage.

For the rubber, Yes, I will consider upgrading soon.
