Just Picked up my Car today..

So finally I picked up my car today, and here are some of my first impression.

The clutch is extremely light, not use to it yet. The seats are really supportive and comfortable. The engine really really wants to rev, it's goign to be extremely hard to keep it under 5500rpm. Also it's smooth as hell. I don't really like the sound of the exhaust but, I have reved over 5000rpm so I wouldn't really know what it sounds at full throttle.

Interior wise, I definately think there are other cars with better interiors, it's not bad but i'm just not impressed.

Oh EDC, you can definately feel the difference at least I did and my car only has 96 miles right now.

Gas mileage is terrible though, but i knew that before, thought i would share.



Man IDrive is definately annoying at first, but starting to get the hang of it at the end of the day, but still wished they had more preset buttons.

Yes Another AW :P

Thanks. Mine came in on 4/22 so I'm trying to gauge when I can expect it to arrive at the dealership.
