Funny thing is it's true.

The car mixed with the color has turned me from someone who self-proclaimedly drove like a "Granny" (and was damn proud of it), to a bonafide nutcase. Good thing I have HUD to quickly tell me when the speeds are about to get out of bounds.

What I love most about the N55 and ZF/SAT is the torque. I've never been a fan of top end speeds so much as those are the most dangerous and life-toying. But feeling that kick in your a$$ when you want it at pretty much any speed from idle (I believe the N55 makes peak torque starting at 1,200 RPM) coming from that sweet sounding ultra smooth I6 with subtle Turbo "whoosh" makes it pleasurable even if for a split second. And your gas mileage still isn't even that bad after it all.
