You'll never fall asleep at this wheel

You've never driven a car this
responsive. Found myself on the
highway yesterday and thought I was
doing about 65 mph, looked down, and
the speedometer was at 90. That's not
to say it's a smooth ride -- you feel
the road. The SMG takes a little
getting used to -- I thought I would be
using the paddles more, but I find
myself usually driving in automatic.
Even in automatic mode, it still drives
more like a manual. It's very quick.
Corners like a dream. I got the
Sirrius satellite radio installed,
which is nice, but it puts a funny
looking lump of plastic on the back of
the car. The car does seem to guzzle
gas, but you find yourself not caring.
The engine's purr at ignition. The
steering wheel. The cockpit.
Satellite radio should be standard.
