Besides, if I want to learn how how to drive this car, I'd rather have OEM specs as the baseline in addition to saving a little bit of $. I'm actually wondering if the alignment will affect MPG too!

Ah gotcha, less toe helps with MPG

If you can, post up your alignment sheet.

The OEM US specs are way better than UK specs in my opinion. If you want to try more aggressive specs with the OEM suspension let me know and I can help you find a good setup.

Here are the updated specs. Rear toe didn't change other than the right side.

Took it up/down 9. Front feels less planted w/ the decrease in negative camber.

Get used to the car with OEM specs. Then I would try -1.6 F + R next with 1/16th total toe. Its the rear toe of the UK specs that are a bit much to me.
