i still can't get over the fact that two weeks ago, i bid on it because it didn't have a reserve. i snuck in at the last minute but surely i thought i was going to be out bid. now, i am driving the car home.

you CA folks should check the Auto Gallery in Fresno (559-227-2222). the GM, Henry and staff, made the transaction easy; picked me up at the airport. and i was able to avoid CA tax w/ my NC tag. Art, the chief mechanic was very helpful with my orientation. they changed the oil and fueled me up for my loooooong trip home to DC. they still have 3 on the lot including a club racer. tell him, Hao sent you.

first impressions as i drove on 41 and 120:
- great looking car.
- the sport coilover are a hard ride. you become one with the road; feel everything on the road.
- the car rides on rails.
- the stereo system, forget about it. sound of the engine is better
- lumbar support is a nice feature
- i avg 27 mpg through the canyons. didn't really get on it hard.
- need practice puting on the top
- aux power plug doesn't hold (maybe the viberation?)
- comes with a perm grin, as you all know

somebody pinch me.

-First congrats.
-It is a great looking car.
-You may get used to the sport suspension. I love it personally.
-If it is riding on rails, you're not going fast enough.
-Engine sound is pretty.
-No comment. Don't have the lumbar support.
-My MPG ranges from about 9 to 30+. The 9 is really fun.
-If you mean the soft top, you'll get to a point where it takes ~1min in the rain.
-European sized port is a little larger. There are some sleeves available somewhere but I've never actually been able to find one.
-that's really what this icon is :D
