I've had my car since the begining of January but havn't really had the oppurtunity to have a lotta fun with the car and get good experiance driving it. But today about 1ish I really really needed to get outta the house. So I decided to go for a drive. So I drove out highway 10 going west from Little Rock. I had been driving about 10 mins and crested a hill in the right lane with a white accord a little ahead in the left lane, both of us going about 10 over in a 50. I see a cop down at the bottom of the hill on the left, he pulls out heading the same direction as us. Luckily there was a turn off to another highway... 300 i think... I turned and drove down about 1/2 a mile turned around and got back on 10 headin west again. There was the cop... ticketing the accord and the car that was behinde me... not sure how he got both but my guess was he woulda gone for me being in a Red BMW. Drove out about 25ish miles and went up Wye mountian (fun road windy with curves in groups then straights then more grouped curves), then down the other side. The drive down the other side is awesome. Steep winding road with a drop off and gaurd rail on the right side great view ect ect... but Iwasn't looking at the view. Even though it's mostly down hill there are dips up and down that always lead to sharp turns... usually with 15mph posted for the turn. Got an awesome shift lock on one. There was a little hill up, just tall enough I couldn't see beyond it, I crested it to a steep hill with a short left followed immediatly by a sharp right almost hairpin, was going about 60 mph. Downshifted to 3rd as I began brakeing...snapped wheel left then right off the the brake and down to second at about 40 ish locked the back wheels gave it gas kicked the back end out about 15 degrees or so kept the gas floored and set up perfect for a long left with gas floored the whole way back up to 60.

Sorry for the story mode, those that enjoy driving should appreciate it. I baiscally made a 27 mile trip (Interstate) from Little Rock to conway a 70 mile back road/back highway trek with many awesome turns on the way. So now I have a little better feel for what the car will do, which is good because I'm auto-xing it on sunday!

Damnit, I wish I had mountains nearby--Indiana's flat as hell.

Anyone who ever buys used cars online, anyone even THINKING of starting a &quot;Is this deal too good to be true?&quot; thread, anyone who wants to be more educated about protecting themselves must <a href='http://www.carbuyingtips.com/fraud.htm' target='_blank'>read this</a>.
