The Car on the Left

The car on the left has crisp precise steering, corners like water in a garden hose, transmission well matched to its high revving engine, roof opens to let in fresh air and sunshine, ..............






same for the car on the right!!

Just a few more electronic toys and a smoother ride!




Had to wash them both today as the temp finally came up above freezing.

Obviously you know what good handling is all about . I agree completely when I compare it to my similar car below:

no F10 to show yet but will definitely bring that to the track to test it out when I get it in January. Here's my E60 (which a lot of people complained about bad steering) at Infineon and my F430 at Thunderhill

1HOTBMR - love the color on your NSX!
laser- that S2000 sure is a fun car to toss around!! love that short shifter too!

You guys make me envious! I only have my F10, and my wife's MB C300. Oh well, when I grow up, I wanna be just like you guys.

Enjoy your rides, and please share with us stories of your driving experiences.

I am sure that you suffered horribly as you were forced to wash those two (2) vehicles in that really nice driveway of yours in the suburbs of Atlanta on a mild winter day. All kidding aside, you have two (2) excellent looking vehicles and I am sure that you had a great deal of fun cleaning them up. I have about two (2) thousand miles on my new F10 and I am enjoying it immensely. I wish you the best with your F10 and I find your opinions to be most accurate and credible. Since you actually own an F10, I am sure that you probably drive it almost every day, which puts you in a legitimate position to offer an opinion. IMO, the new F10 is a fabulous vehicle that has both excellent performance and handling.

Better than mine. Mine is Hyundai Accent. I should just cry in a corner somewhere.
