TO FERNANDO : Beast Update
How are you feeling now? Are you able to drive your Beast yet? Hope you are doing well.
My family and I are enjoying the "Beast" very much. The name is VERY appropriate. Could be like "Beauty and the Beast" or possibly "Dr. Jekyl and Mr. Hyde" ... it can be quiet and pretty or very much the "BEAST"! We have just over 600 miles on it now.
My wife loves driving it and my son really likes it also. We are having fun with the GPS system, the OBC and the M-Audio. The most fun comes from the performance though. Great accelleration and handling, better than what I expected.
Good thing I got it when I did, my old '81 (over 307,000 miles now) is in the shop: new Right Tie Rod, New Fan Motor for the heater, and new rear end (This is a used Alpina, 75% limited slip, 3.64 ratio top replace my old 3.45s). Should help the acceleration some but it is a FAR CRY from the Beast!
I get a lot of nice comments about the car and the color, but I don't brag about the performance. I like the idea that not everyone knows that it is really a supercar!
How are you enjoying the filters and Nowack programming? I think that an additional 30 hp should be noticeable for you.
Take care, will talk with you soon....
