I almost bought a FRS, but all a suddenly need more space.
I went out and bought a new BMW 13 740ilx.
After drove it for 1 month, I can tell the difference between 5 and 7.
Although I still have my M3 and Carrera, I never drive it anymore.

Probably I may want a new sport car.
I don't feel like to have a sport DD car.

The new NSX has a nice interior, not sure is it a good car.
BMW 7 series are very popular in HK, mainly because most of the main chief use BMW protective car.

Been a while since I've been around these parts, interesting thread. I'm quite happy with my C63, as an every day driver it is a beast and will keep me busy for another year or so.

Must say the Jag F-Type Coupe R has me extremely interested... styling wise I can't think of a better looking car out there. 550hp V8 and that sound... will be very interested to see the MSRP in Canada and how close it will be to the US pricing.

This pic makes me lose my shit every time...

Congratulations!
I drove the white one in this video at Shannonville, long track.
Fantastic! Only problem, $325K!

That being said, I've had some mechanical issues with the GT 2 that are finally resolved. link to the result.
Make sure the HD is illuminated.

Thank you sir. I'm really glad, it's been a long season...
Everybody tells you there's nothing wrong with the car, it's you. Change this change that.... FO.

Courtney from Autowerks joined us at the track, diagnosed the problem(s), finally sorted them out, one at a time. That day the track was green and it was quite cold, so having a car that the balance was good, put a big smile on my face. Still prone to oversteer, we'll address that in 2014.

Having ridden shotgun in a 12C at my last track day in October (Mosport 6th Gear), I can honestly say that is a seriously impressive car. This particular 12C had Hoosier Slicks mounted on ADV1 wheels so it was just that much crazier! Congrats puckmaster. If driving one was the only thing I needed to convince me, we would be living in a perfect world. Unfortunately, I'd have to convince the banker to justify the $325K for the cost of admission!

MP4 is a great car. Sort of a waste to have one and be living in Edmonton though.

That's the car I drove at Shannonville with the Hoosiers.
What a difference they make over cups. Have a set on order for next year...

Thankfully no, as Gerry came up to me after the second session where he spun and said, "why did you let him pass he wanted to follow you".
I'm still relearning the car, should be fun 2014.

You need to, really great group of Eccentrics.
