I posted this because I think its the most overstated incorrect statement that I see over and over here when responding to an inquiring mind on here. Too many people says that if you test drove it and didn't buy it then its not for you. You have to remember that most people can't "drive". So if your on a test drive doing the speed limit and turning normal corners then your not getting anything out of it. From reading comments on here one would speculate that your suppose to have an orgasm from just pulling out a parking lot. I came from all front engine cars and on my Lotus test drive I did absolutely nothing "Lotus-Like". A dealer isn't gonna just hand over the keys and tell you to start bending corners. I don't know, maybe the dealers do the driving themselves. The only real experience most will get is the second cam switchover. I bought the car based off of a combination of how it looks and what I knew it was capable of (but I did know all the "downsides" to the car before I bought it). But it took me months (without classes) before I got enough of a feel for it to where I started really taking turns and getting this experience. I know a lot of people on here were good drivers and track drivers prior to the Lotus purchase but this board isn't the majority. Just some thoughts for the new people.
