It isn't an easy car to launch well. Requires practice. I got mine to 4.2 eventually (not sure how accurate P3 gauge is though)

Most likely I would think it's based on the same feedback from the wheels and therefore it would be as inaccurate as our speedo's are. I think the last time I compared my GPS speed to my speedo, the cruise control was set at 100kph but the GPS read about 92-93kph.

Back OT here, of the 13 cars, only 1 of them would be registered in the new owners name at less than what RRP was at the time. Hence why there are so many cars, cause there are so many dreamers

I'd say $90k-95k is fair. Don't think these sellers are serious about moving their cars though. Also many paid around $120k new, where s some of us paid ~$110k

Maybe not many people can handle that much power his car has? Must be nuts to have a car that pulls skids whilst strapped down on a dyno?

Sure, but most would take $90-95k if offered, else not serious about selling

It is what someone is prepared to pay. I would for example still pay $110k for a near new one as they are just that good a car.... way more fun than an M3 IMO
