What do you like?

Me- the car looks like it is doing 150mph while sitting still.

Plus, The drivetrain is absolutely intense. The mode selector changes the car from being a comfortable commuter car to being a an aggressive fire breathing rocket. The sound of the motor/exhaust combined with millisecond shifts make it an amazing all-around package.

The steering input and feedback are the better than most sports cars. Serious.

The steering input is super direct and you always know where the wheel is pointed. The car responds immediately as a well connected package. In "spirited" street driving and carving up twisty roads, the steering is like guiding a slot car. The car is verrrry neutrally balanced and predictable. In pushing the car harder, the 4-wheel steering option (ha!) it is possible to cause oversteer. Though, in Dynamic mode, the car (almost) unobtrusively brings the car back in line. I would never do double the speed limit on back roads :)

from what I remember its been a while:grin2: I liked the quick shifts of the ZF8 transmission...my wife's 340xi M-Sport has the same ZF8 but it does not shift as fast...for sure....I was bummed no manual...but frankly I really really like the way the transmission is set-up on this...even in auto mode the car is never looking for the right gear...it steps up/down as it should... ahhhh memories..:p

You sure there is not a re-make of Ferris Buehlers day off being filmed!?

I'm really enjoying the sunroof in my Quadrifoglio, especially when engaging Launch Control while at the track, and listening to my 7th and 8th preset radio stations!

However, I'm most happy that it only starts up when I press the Red Button on the steering wheel.

Them's some unique 1 of 1 features your car has. Don't forget about the boosted re-sale value with the rear fold down seats!

You know I'm SO tempted to remove the rear seat back just to see what's actually behind it!

It’s been discussed here. I think it was originally supposed to be a 2019 change but was made as a running change on the later 2018 models...
