Nice write up. I thougth that this must be about Old Zen, but it was Ikon and that too red in color. It has the go to match its show.

A Great write up N_C. You got many of us thinking that a love story is coming our way & your write up is no less than a love story

OT: whenever i dance with my 1.6 DL 8CV-0088, it gives me amazing high. might be it is same for most of the ikon owners

Thats a beautiful write-up NC. I had this thought a few times while reading it that I should jump the gun and scroll to the bottom of the post to get over it quick. But your words kept me honest and I ended up reading it to the end despite sensing something fishy (result of a crooked mind). Keep the love affair going.

Lovely writeup. Figured out from the title itself

But yes, we still want a Sam like one liner ending, preferably the story has to have 4-5 segments with one liner breaks

Depends on what mood you are in. the iKon is is the young race horse at the derby while the RS is the thorough bred. While the RS will do what you want without any fuss, the ikon will be the one that will give you that extra thrill.

The steering feed back is much better on the ikon than the RS. It feels a bit numb on the RS even after improved response at higher speeds.

When you are in boy racer mood - take the ikon. It will thrill you to bits.
When you are in the mood but want to be doing things with minimum fuss - the RS. It will do the same thing as the Ikon but more maturely.
