    Two observations and one question after a week of driving the new 718GTS around town.

    The 4-runner sits higher than the 718, so be careful as you slip into a parking slot, that the bottom of the fender doesn't scrap over the curb. I know, this is obvious, but still, I have now made note. √

    It probably says it someplace, but ApplePlay ONLY starts after the iPhone is unlocked. √.

    A question for anyone who might know (I couldn't find any discussion within the forum pages): I noticed in the owner's manual that the max weight (2 passengers of 150lbs each plus bags of 30lbs each) should NOT exceed 400 lbs. Really? Like most Americans are 150 and under? What happens if the total weight exceeds 400lbs? Poor handling and gas mileage, probably. Anything else to be aware of in the collective experience?
