Thanks for the compliments guys! Yep, the girlfriend came along for the ride. It was actually a lot of fun! I haven't had a chance to fully inspect the clear bra area yet, but it seemed to have done a good job. I believe I'm now at 900 miles, so only 300 more till break in!!!!! I'd like to echo a statement I heard from Xcellere though; this car definitely has power on tap at any point in the revs. Even at just half throttle, 6th gear pulled pretty hard and passing cars was effortless. The steering felt very connected and it gives you a great sense of confidence. Haha, even after driving for 2 days straight, I couldn't wait to get home and take her out for a cruise around town. I just love driving this car!
