The GTS comes with a bored out 4.4L V8 instead of the 4.0L, right? How does he like it as a track car? It's still pretty porky and dials in a lot of understeer initially and then snap oversteer, from what I've read.

I haven't really talked to him about it but I heard that the car had a lot of problems.

That's unfortunate. Seems to be the norm with BMW's these days.

We are going to a fundraiser at Bob Sharp's home this weekend.

"Bob Sharp has one of the most interesting racing stories in the history of American racing. Sharp is the man behind Bob Sharp Racing, probably the single most successful Datsun racing team of all time. Between sedans and Z cars, Sharp holds six national SCCA championships. Jim Fitzgerald, Brad Frisselle, Elliot Forbes-Robinson and Actor Paul Newman won many races and a long list of championships in BSR Datsuns."

It also had an extended leather package and DCT. Sticker had not been put on the car as yet but the salesman said it was listing at over $84,000 (they are going to try a sticker plus market price). He said the car had a limited edition run of 200 units and was trying to sell me that it would only go up in value as a collector piece. I'm not sure about that, but I was disappointed that it did not have finished brake calipers.

They also had a new X5 on the showroom in Valencia Orange. This color looks very interesting and may look great in the sun.

There will very likely be one at Lime Rock on the 27th. One of the club members ordered one and she had probably taken delivery by now.

Congratulations HotIce, looks like your dream has finally arrived. We need more pictures, and a 'test drive' description! In the meantime, buy yourself a pair of gloves.
