    Some driving experience

    I got my metor grey tt last week and did 500km in the Swiss Alps today. Great weather, fantastic road conditions.

    My Impressions and 'IMO':


    I have limited myself to 4500rpms and 5000max.

    The car handles very precise, very pleasant doing serpentines on mountain roads. It is going on rails. Might give you an overly confident feeling though, so take care. Going just straight, steering is very sensitive. One has to get used to that.

    Although I can not compare it with steel brakes, the PCCBs are a dream on those roads. Very predictable and no fade at all. For obvious reasons I have not used them to their limit yet. Although they react very fast, they are not overly aggressive. The feedback from the pedal is excellent. No noise at all.

    I think for most but the smoothest roads, the sport mode of the PASM is overdoing its job. Heavy braking on bumpy parts of the road before turning into a needle curve makes the car quiet nervous without any additional feedback benefit.

    Accelerating out of near 180 degrees curves in first or second benefits substantially from LSD. You really can feel the grip it helps to produce in those situations. Shifting down from 3 to 2, that's what I did most today, is very fast if you keep the rpms in the band.

    My car has adaptive seats, which IMO is a must if you want to drive fast serpentines. It holds you in position without overly squeezing your back. Besides that, they the just look great.

    Sorry no pics yet, my camera failed. Better the camera than the car.

    For the waiters: You won't be disappointed!

    Cheers Bending
