Hardly ever - I don't care for the twitchy throttle, nor the higher revs. Instead, I'll hit the DSC button once and go into DTC mode. It allows for more movement before the stability and traction...

All cars take that long to warm up their oil, in fact, but you rarely notice it because they usually report coolant...

No. It's not actually at that price point. You offering it at $1000 doesn't mean anything. Somebody has to be willing to buy it. Only then will your watch be a $1000 watch.
