It'd be interesting to put a stopwatch on both cars for something like a 50 to 80 mph run...

The leather in the back seats is curiously scratched all over the place too - like someone tossed their golf bags there continuously. I think it's just real fragile stuff - not like the leather that looks 100% perfect in my 120K mile BMW E39 5-Series.

As for a stopwatch, I wish I could bring both cars out to the Streets of Willow on the 20th, but I only have room for one car on my trailer. We're going out there the night before with the trailer and the mini-RV. I hate driving at 4:30AM to the track, and then driving all day while exhausted and tired.

Thanks for the post to that article, I will print that and put it in my archives.
