Well mine is on order and I can't wait. I must say I was very impressed with the handling dynamics of this car (330 ZHP) and I put it through the paces on 5 seperate test drives, including several long ones, all where I was able to thrash the car a bit - with traction control off and on - and I had great fun with it. Even drove nice in the rain...suprised me I must admit...however compared to my chipped S4 it is noticibly less fast - but still very nice - particualrly when one can work the revs. I felt that it was a bit faster then the RX-8 I drove - and perhaps equally as nimble (RX-8 is really a very nice driving, supremely balanced car)...and would expect it to be (pretty much) just as fast as a 350Z - though I have never driven one (I just eat them and the G35's for lunch in my S4). All nice cars though. I did (briefly) consider the RX-8 (wishing on Mazdaspeed 300hp supercharged version!), the G35 coup (neither had any kind of trunk however). I also considered the new Volvo S40 (also available for pick up in Europe)...but it is currently not available with a stick (or AWD which was of interest) - and I am very glad now - as I have come to appreciate the 330 ZHP as a whole different league of car. I know I'm going to enjoy it and I can't wait for July!
...BTW I've never had any interest in a Corvette..fine car - but way to big and just not for me. I do dispute it being able to keep with a small BMer in tight twisties - despite its roadholding ablity and power...I just cant see a normal driver being able to drive one as fast in transition. In the past - with a Supercharged Toyota MR2 - that i still own but do not drive - I have proven (with racing slicks) to be able to outrun Corvettes (and 300Zs!) in tight twisties..and even keep on the tail of a first gen NSX - whose mission was to try to shake me!
