Man I was gonna ask what your initial driving impression was. Can you elaborate on what you really think overall now that you've driven it a bit? I know after driving something a bit you start to pick up on differences depending on where you drive. Man I wish my boys wife was like yours...as soon as he got married his hobby went to shit....I am so pissed. You oughta go buy her a gift and realize your pretty lucky bro...
