5th gear 3000RPM is 140kph.

I'll wait for that.

Half hearted because-I'm really happy for you, but on the other hand, sad for myself because when I was in the market for this car, it was priced out of reach, now that they have dropped the price, everyone's getting the car that I really wanted!
Congratulations and yeah half hearted from me too.I DONT WANT OBJECTS in the rear view mirror to quickly disappear in the front

Default Congrats mate

Congrats on your new rocket.

Does seem that both the car and the driver are eager to take off. Be careful and keep in mind that others around you are not so blessed / competent in their driving abilities.

And yeah, envious that you are at an age that you can ignore VFM
