Got mine from the same place (Adrian); it will be exactly a year this coming Friday
Best part is, that WOW feeling you have is not going to go away anytime soon

The car now has just over 400 miles on it from a quick trip to the mountains on my way back from atlanta. Originally, I had planned to go up to the tail of the dragon but it was raining too hard. Instead, I drove the parkway and a good run up and down NC151 then the back roads home.
My impressions....WOW. Even taking it easy on the engine the car is a hell of a lot of fun. On the rain soaked mountain roads it preformed wonderfully and predictably. The mDCT is much better than I had expected and I did not notice any lag at all. Once I got back on somewhat level roads the car averaged 22.4mpg between 70 and 80mph.
Next, I can't wait to get the engine broke in and really have some fun.
This is all the shots that I had time to take this week....I could not stop driving it after I sign the paperwork.
