    Damn straight!

    Stevo is coming with me to Indonesia in June to essentially do the Top Gear Vietnam Special. May have to line up the end of it with the picnic....

              I know this ultimately boils down to a differing opinion but yes, I do believe my daily driver should be fun. Some days I don't get have time to go on a spirited drive or engross myself with the meandering curves of a well crafted road but if my daily sparks a quickening of breath, a dose of endorphins or a split second of white knuckle acceleration down an on ramp that's enough. I have to get my petrol powered fix every day and a mundane, invisible, dime a dozen commuter just won't do it for me.

                I Agree 100% I hate driving stock cars, they just feel mushy.

                  This is exactly how I feel too. I want the car that I spend the most time in to be the best and most fun car I have for any amount of time spent in it. It puts a smile on my face daily, and that alone is worth it. Ive never gotten that with Hondas or Toyo's or water cooled VW's.

                        It's pretty nuts. As soon as it builds boost the tires spin, even in 5th gear at 60mph

                        haha yea my $600 eta is definitely the garage queen. Good thing I have a truck for how often it decides not to run.

                          That's sketch, lol. Even my s50 car is touchy in the rain. If I nail it in 4th in the rain, it'll lose traction. Can't imagine what it's like with boost.

                              Once a week ish I'll be driving and it'll decide it doesnt want to anymore. After a few minutes of sitting its fine. I have an m30 in my garage, and a complete turbo set up from a 745i. Can't really imagine having two turbo'ed m30 e30's haha
