...as he distanced himself in my rearview mirror. No, no race at all. Just a jerk who came flying up behind me as I was exiting the Hutch to get onto 287W. Around that bend, no need to touch the brakes, no tire squeal, nothing but some light throttle to pull me around the bend. I'm still not sure why he seemed to stop way back there as his car plowed deep into the turn. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Damn I love corners. I really feel for you guys down in Fla. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"><p>-Eric

Not crazy fast though. I was actually a bit surprised to see the guy back off so hard. There were a number of cars in the merging lanes that I had to cross over, so I wasn't checking my speed that closely. There's also a bit of a blindspot in the road as you enter Westchester Ave and merge left to get onto 287, so I didn't want to fly across the road into someone. Of course, rather than doing it slowly, the M45 cut off a few cars to make it onto 287.<p>I'll try to take better notice tomorrow. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"><p>-Eric

Damn nice interiors though.

The interior is a nice place in which to sit - I've been in the neighbors car in the driveway and it looks very cool. He has the dark dash with the wood - it looks pretty nice. Definitely more luxury than sport - and the seats were supportive, for the two minutes I was in the car. <p>And Lee, the interior of the M is rumored to be constructed of pure, 100% unobtanium, stable down to 14,000 rqm's. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Good to hear from you - hope you're doing well.
