I was stuck in stop-and-go traffic yesterday next to a matte-finished M-B SL. The driver motioned for me to lower my window. When I did he proposed that we let the cars ahead of go to build up a gap and then find out which of our cars faster. I told him his paint job alone would leave my Giulia in the dust. That wasn't good enough for him and he persisted, saying "no, really". I hope he has the opportunity to test his car against a QV some day.

your paint job comment was clever and funny! btw...I am not a matte fan though I know some still are. shinny cars should soon be back in vogue:)

Yeah

That will happen, you handled it will. Q.V. is really not a drag race car to me it’s a total car. Tell him next time to meet you at the track that changes everything lol.

I think he was mostly interested in impressing his passenger. They rocketed off when they reached the next major intersection. "Hi-yo Silver, away!"

We need more QVs around, to defend the badge's reputation!
I’m doing my part!>:)

Tomorrow will be the true test, as we mingle with BMW, Porsche and American muscle cars at a track event.

It should be fun!

OP, how old was the show off? 18?

"I'd love to but this **** thing keeps breaking down....just got another CEL".....:x

Believe it or not, in his 60s or 70s.

My working stiff Friday, a full day at the office after dropping my daughter off at a weekend high school leadership event 1½ hours from home. Out the door at 6:30 AM and several construction obstacles to navigate with Giulia's assistance.

A red Q4 drove quite racy in an effort to pull up alongside me and say "hello" yesterday on Woodward. Sorry to disappoint by pulling off onto a side street before reaching a traffic light.
