I really love smoking other cars now and then putting down all the power my 08 Aero convertible has... I know this car isn't really that fast but its so easy to dial up once one is past first and second gear (auto) where the engine power is cut down by the engine software. Just had a spirited roll w/ a a BMW 330i where we both hammered it up to 100mph then backed off--basically a dead heat. We smiled at each other so this wasn't an angry run.
What's really fun is when I'm up in the mountains above 5000 feet going up. Others cars are wheezing and the turbo keeps things breathing right, allowing me to punch above my weight.
I wish I could set the car up to be in the sport mode by default and only switch it off...It really helps.
I'm smart enough not to push it hard off the line because even granny in her V6 Accord can take make me look slow. Bummer.
I feel like a driving SAAB commercial sometimes. Do you?
