Incredible as they may seem, but the reviews are SO right! Seeing this orange beast sit in a regular parking lot, it's supercar-like for presence. Driving it, even during break-in, makes you feel like you're riding some wild thing as well. No lack of refinement though, only over typical Belgian cobble stone roads. Tried some smaller, uneven country roads with a lot of elevation change too and the car stays composed, not jiggly like our e60 m5. The lower end torque is really addictive too, definitely second and third with windows opened! Third gear is simply awesome by the way!!!
One thing I didn't read yet: there appears to be a little lag when pulling from 2k or so, with sometimes a short on-off-on (all in less than a sec) phenomenon. It disappears with m-mode engaged and I suspect it's lessening. Maybe it was something onlyfor the first couple 100 kms.. Has anyone else experienced this?!
