Unfortunately :-(

But I did get in an absolutely WONDERFUL 320 mile drive yesterday in the 5 from Aspen to Colorado Springs. 200 miles of it was through HARD CORE mountain curves. My overall average speed was 60, and that was with cruise control at 85 for the 120 miles of straightaway. Very happy with my decision to bring the 5 to Aspen.

Now now A6&7, don't bait teh kindly Professor...He loves BOTH of his babies, but likely the 5 a wee bit more since he's had it done pretty much from soup to nuts.

Prof -

Awesome scenery and drive for you I'm sure! I was trying to lay low yesterday on my country drive back (one lane brige underpasses, winding scenic drives then big time highway straightaways followed by narrow winding higways with opposing jerkoffs lights in your eyes and fools weaving in and out of your lane etc.) but soo many people kept getting on me or had crooked headlights which are of course a real problem when you are way low in a Z! I really had to muzzle myself since more and more I'm seeing the major boost lives at anbd beyond 100 mph. It is actually hard to keep the car down when she gets warmed up and going - have to make a conscious effort or she just takes off . By the time I was on my local crazy highway, I had had enough and just zoomed my way away from these fools - but not until after a stupid limo driver weaved and then cut me off, unleashing the Z on himself as I flew right after him and treated him to my brights for about 4 miles...Some people just don't have any courtesy...sigh.

BTW - plans for a carport and widening my new driveway are well underway. I plan and hope to have room for a 5er behinid my 328 in said carport...We plan to close by mid-September...

Quite. Although the 7 is surprisingly agile in the corners with the Dinan-tuned suspension.

By the way, I heard that there's a new batch of ProjectorZ's being made, if you're interested.

That was the one thing that made my heart fall when I saw the pics of your house. If you would like some financial assistance in accomplishing the goal of increased off-street parking, let me know. I'd love to have a car parked up there. Still debating between the 5 and the 7, but probably the 5.

We shall talk. Again, at a minimum, the plan is widening the driveway for at least two cars comfortably and also putting in the carport on the side of the house whuich whould be plenty of room for at least 4 cars (hopefully TWO bi bad 5's...a 3 and a Z. IMO your 5 is the clear choice, but that;s not to say you don't bring up the 7 for a few onths here and there and then leave the 5 in Atlanta...
