2021 MY, 88xxx. I just picked it up yesterday, 12/26. Already 219 miles, checking everything out.

I decided to check wheel lug nut torque
: YIKES! I could easily remove ALL of the nuts with a T wrench, guessing about 75 lb/ft. Should be 129 lb/ft.

I also noticed the nuts holding the wheel well liners were all barely finger tight. I snugged them all down a bit.

Just an FYI.
