Exactly. If you want to save gas get a Prius. Don't get me wrong I would love to save some gas but I love more smashing the pedal when getting on the freeway.

So I propose the gas milage I save by driving easy is lost with one $575 walnut blasting session. Leading to the thought process of have fun and drive this magnificent beast hard cuz you ain't saving money driving real easy to improve MPH
Not worrying about MPG I started to use the 6 speed shifter and really enjoy the sound of that high compression engine responding. 7 Grand is the place to be!!!! I hope other new owners don't have to learn the same lesson. Drive it hard.
I never had a car this nice. I haven't come close to its performance limits.
I could go on and on and on and........
