One time I had the window down and the sound did startle me then so I assume it sounds a little funny to anyone outside of the car.

I even find myself missing it when the engine is to cold to work. Am I drinking the koolade here?
I get mine by March 1 (I hope). I am wondering about ASS. I have heard from some that after the car is broken in, or after a few thousand miles, you don't feel the jerk of the start up from an ASS stop anymore, that the system smooths itself out. Can anyone vouch for this?
Have you ever noticed that anybody driving slower than you is an idiot, and anyone going faster than you is a maniac?
