Review
I've been trained in and conducted vehicle pursuits as well as driven for performance. I didn't know how incredible a normal road car could be until I found this car used. Yes I miss cup holders but the Germans build cars to drive, not eat and drink in. The power can almost be scary and the knowledge that you can dust just about everything else on the road is comforting. Do your own maintenance and you can afford driving the car. Change your oil (on your own it's $35-40 not $150) every 2500 miles and you'll do well. Keep your wheels balanced and aligned. If they are out ever so slightly you'll know it and think your brakes are having problems.
Favorite Features
The V8 engine with the mated transmission makes for a neck jerking acceleration from single to triple digits in no time (be careful of the cops like me who like to chase). The car has 10 or 12 airbags and great brakes. It's an engineering marvel. Love the aviation lights during the night as well.
Suggested Improvements
Ok, I'll say it, at least one cup holder would be nice (that works).
