MGBGT,

0-60 in 3.2 sec. Now, that's quick! Didn't know the auto was that much quicker than the stick. Bet she's a real neck-snapper out of the hole when the diffs lock up & all of that torque hits the pavement. I haven't had the opportunity to drive anything that accelerates quite that hard, but I've spent a few hours in an unlimited aerobatic plane that could accelerate a bit quicker, at just over 1 G. I've always been a bit of an acceleration addict, I guess. You mentioned that Quattro is tuned to allow the rear to come out & play, but not let it come around. Sounds like they achieved the Holy Grail of AWD - a perfect balance between stability, agility, and precision. Very nice, indeed!

Rickyd,

Love the 540! Looks nice & mean in all-black. (Being a Grand National guy, I sort of have a thing for black-on-black cars.) Any mods?

Joel
