...in a good way, I suppose.

I kind of lost my cool on the way to work...a semi blocking the passing lane for a few miles. I passed him in the right lane, didn't go WOT, just got on it a little bit, looked at the speedo and was going waaaaaay faster than I thought.

A person needs to be careful with this car.

Did run my first 0-60 last week. ESP on, used Autostick, 90*+ temps that day, didn't go WOT, shifted at about 4800 rpm, ran a 6.78. This thing is a rocket.

Good luck.

I was pretty shocked how fast it will go in 2nd before it bumps into the "OK, I'm shifting for you now" point. :)

Did one of my 1st "Do I have room for this pass?" deals and was amazed at how quickly I got it done. Got back to my lane with some broken lines left over in the pass zone. It would have been marginal in my 01 Tundra. Gave the old girl a lil pat on the dash while sporting a grin.

You get a ticket on the Autobahn for a) passing on the right and b) not moving right for faster traffic.

personally, I'd like to see b) done more here. Some people get on freeways and IMMEDIATELY move to the far left lane, regardless of how fast they are going.

My pet peeve is the occasional jerk who gets in the left lane and then matches speed with someone in the right lane, effectively preventing anyone from passing. I was always taught to stick to the right lane UNLESS you're passing.

How about this one: You are set on a nice comfy cruise and the guy in the right lane ahead of you (and -10Mph) decides he doesn't want to be held up (or cancel his cruise setting) by that old truck ahead of him, so he just vectors out in front of you :( If I am in that situation, I speed up considerably, make my pass and get the hell outta the way of the faster guy. I have an aggressive throttle foot, but I don't do things to pi## other people off (if it can be helped).
