Thanks dude!

Lol, I think one of my favorite parts of the sound is when you have your foot off the gas and it's just snarling and popping like an angry beast. @IcE, you ought to tell your buddy to look on youtube. There's tons of videos of corvettes with modded exhaust. Of course, they don't do them justice in real life, but you can still get the idea.

Yeah, the suspension is hard as a rock. It really sucks on my roads. It really shines when you get a smooth curvy road though. The rest of the time and you get your ass beat, lol. I'm probably going to change out the shocks for coilovers so I can adjust the damping rate on the fly.

Oh and for your buddy who thinks the LS3 doesn't sound good...show him these clips.

Here was my old one with just headers...yeah it sounds horrible LMAO okay!

Worst sounding engine ever! Lmao. Honestly he probably will never do it anyway. He's in his 50's and I hate to say, a typical Vette owner. Not interested in performance, just the look haha

Nah... that's what it does to people when i get out of my car. Or, much more interestingly, when I (at about 6' flat) and a friend of mine (about 6'6) get out of my car.

Smart Car Lifestyle. haha

Went to check out some exotics the other day. Going to check a few more out this week. Here's some neat McLaren's. P1, 720S, 650S with the 675LT and some 570S in the background with my GT-R.

Would you consider trading up to a 570S?

Adding a 650S is what I'm considering. Going to test out a Huracan today.

Ahh, time to roll big I see. Keep in mind that the McLarens are great but don't hold their value as well as the Huracan and the 488. The 488 is the king of this price bracket when it comes to holding value, and that biturbo V8 is really well liked. The Huracan is a monster though, and it's rather inexpensive to bump the power up to the 900 range and create a wonderful final resting place for yourself

It's interesting though that the Huracan is the most produced Lamborghini because of how well it's selling. May really hurt resale down the road, who knows.

488 is way out of budget. 458 is a slug compared to these two. It's coming down to 650S vs. Huracan. Wife likes the Huracan more, I like the 650S more after driving the two in short. The 650S prices have come down and are on the further end of the depreciation curve.

Ahh. I think the 458 is ugly anyway. The 650S is definitely the best looking out of the two, I would personally go with that

I've been living in Tokyo for the last year, The Saab and Panda have been in storage in the UK, so this has been the weapon of choice.

Awesome. Someone who lives here has a black one that I've seen a few times. He isn't shy with that accelerator pedal, that's for sure. That V10 sounds great.

Funny how you were considering completely different cars last month

I was testing them all out...

This, McLaren 570S, 650S, and Lamborghini Huracan. Long story short this is a more luxurious Huracan for less cash and better ride quality. If we want a rough ride we take out the GT-R. The McLaren we did not like the 570S but I really did enjoy the 650S. At the end of the day we didn't want a risky purchase. The McLaren reliability in some cases was questionable at best. In addition, the resale market is in total disarray with them and didn't want to be out a lot of cash with a potential unreliable car.

Drove the R8 and heard the exhaust note it was everything of the Huracan without it's negatives for us. If you go to a car meet or drive around everyone with exotics has either a Ferrari or the Lamborghini. This is a bit less seen in our area. The rest is history.
