    they are nice...i really liked driving my friends....chirping the hell out of 3rd gear with 3 ppl in the car :eek3:
    Still got beat by my friends bolt-on LS1 though...not too impressive...an overall great car, its a shame that they arent being bought...I would in a second if so many tools around here didnt have them.

    I thoroughly enjoyed it. Nice ride, nice interior appointments (save for some chintzy looking plastic bits), and balls out power. Fuck. :eek3:

    I still like how the back seats have side bolsters. Easily amused :o

    I like that too. They were more comfortable than the front seats in most other cars. Even my BMW. :eek3:

    I test drove one also, and really, really like it. I hit it kinda hard around a turn, and whipped the rear end into the other lane. But it was very easy to bring back under control

    I was honestly amazed how that power was under so much control. It also sounds like pure sex:naughty:

    It's just a powerhouse in a great looking....mid-grade build quality car. I would love to have one alongside my 540i/6. Chop the roof off it, and make it look right, and i'll order one.

    30 something after rebates. I think if I was in a better position to buy I could get them down more.
