Congrats and welcome! Give us some more pics already

That is a great story, glad you were given a pass on the ticket. When I was in my search I found myself up in Baltimore on Business. There was a "right-priced" manual 650 located in Trenton, NJ. I had a full day of down time between meetings so I took a roadtrip to take a test drive.

They gave me the car to drive with a young porter, I broke every traffic law in that town! Driving the 6 in a stick was a real blast, when a light turned yellow I chose to floor it and squirt through the yellow/red instead of stopping. I was ripping through turns and accelerating beyond the limit by 2nd gear. When I gave the keys back to the sales guy I asked him if the police were looking for me since traffic laws around the dealer were optional! Anyway, it was a slow day and it caused a good laugh by all the staff, they thought it was the funniest thing all day.
