    They also had a chance to address the gearing shortcomings of the car as well. But agreed in general with your observation. Can't totally blame them 100% cause of the emissions crap. Which also is...

    Re: Return of the six?????!!!!!!

    My 2 cents. Have not seen the configurator yet but I am keeping my Spyder. I don't feel I can part with that kinda cash for something that's not a GT3 based motor. If I had not had my current Spyder...

    That description pretty much nails it. That is what I experience as well. There's no traction control light flashing. So definitely it's not the TC.

    Heck yeah I am down with a dual clutch tranny. Good news for me! I miss my M3 just for that very reason. Shifting gears is great but on a track I want my flappy paddles!!! And in the twists too!
  24. Re: 6 cylinder NA cars are for "touring" (unless they aren't)

    No need for insults and no I don't think they would sell more Spyders if they slapped on an auto roof. They need to make more of them first so they could sell to more people :P
