Congrats, I knew it wasn't going to be much longer until we had another one in the neighborhood. Lets go to Davie on Friday, that gives you three and a half days to get the 1200 miles in, no problem right!

Been busy since I got the beast Tuesday. I sat in the garage with 48 miles on it.
Tonight I'm packing for a sad journey(death in the family) and as I got a break in the
action I decided to drive her at night for the first time to see those Xenon lights.

Took a turn onto a quite country road and for the first time experience third gear.......

Wow, what a car.......

Feels like a 911 turbo in that gear. The six speed is just right, thank you Munich.

If anybody talks about putting an automatic in this car, the're speaking a blasphemy...

The shift, clutch and torque curve are so well suited to each other that driving it is
suprisingly fluid and powerful.

Now I know why so many auto writers have been thrilled by this car.

We'll back to the packing.
