    Alright well no pics yet since I been driving it all day and now its dark, but I'm getting the hang of it. At 1 light I forgot it wasn't an automatic and didn't put it in neutral and that gave it a good little jerk.

    Going from 1st-3rd and I make it bounce a little bit, but I think im getting better at that to, 4th and 5th is always smooth I'm still getting a little nervous when ppl are behind me at a light, but I'm getting over that to.

    Already put 100 Miles on it since yesterday afternoon and I have the most part been shifting before 4000, but here and there i gotta take it a little bit past.

    Some f'n ******* cut me off and made me slam my brakes and they're not even broken in. Man did he hear some f'n road rage for that one. But all in all this car is fun as hell.

    I'm a very chill driver SOMETIME but when I have to take it to the next level, i gotta do it all the way. It's fun to know what your car can do before you make the wrong mistake.

    Well I haven't stalled it in about 10 days now, and I'm definitely getting better at changing gears smoothly. Only got 300 more miles till I can really see what this car got and I can't wait ^_^. Already got scratches on both front doors and some that runs along the corner of the spoiler but on the hood. Not to mention the little nick on the bumper. I don't know how any of those got there, but meh I guess I'm just gonna have to deal with them since this is NYC and no one has respect for anyone else's ****.
