Drove her home from Atlanta on Thursday... not a bad drive ~ 10.5 hours, 705miles. Got surprisingly decent gas mileage 20.2mpg @ 75.4mph not bad for a V10. Still getting used to the SMG trans, but the more I drive it the more I like it.

One unintended consequence, that I didn't even consider until I parked the M6 in the garage and my wife pointed it out... is that I now own three cars that are almost the same identical color. whoops

mook is probably the last person you want to take suggestions from when it comes to modding your car

take his advice if you want to take out a 2nd mortgage on your home or sell a child.

I calculated part of the trip and the computer was pretty much spot on
