So happy to have found a twin (lives near me). Same color and all. We talked for a bit asking if each person has encountered any problems yet, I have not luckily. But the guy I bumped into says when he lets his sport sit for a couple days after it has rained the ebrake does not want to disengaged (from the rear tires). Good to know- may have the dealer look into this just in case. Anyways here's a pic:

It's normal. Brakes rust when they get wet, you leave the parking brake on and they'll fuse together slightly. Best to not apply the parking brake if they are wet or have a chance of getting wet and sitting for a long time. Even I won't put the parking brake on after washing my car in the evening and letting it sit over night because I know they will do that.
