My car is also approaching 2,000 miles and my feelings are very similar.

Performance is great. Even 100MPH + acceleration seems very, very strong to me - not having enjoyed a V10 M5/M6 or anything else that would make me feel otherwise (bikes excepted). The engine revs forever, feeling that the red line has increased more than it really has compared to the old model. Exhaust/intake noise could be louder but the sound is sweet and seems just right.

I have had a few chances to really push the car and the handling is fantastic. The front end really digs in and I've always felt that I knew what the car was doing - despite the well documented poor steering feel (the one reported issue that had me concerned pre-delivery). Steering feel is still an issue for me but nothing like the scale we were all lead to believe - not spoiling my enjoyment.
