A big hello to everyone on this forum. My name is Oscar and I am originally from Costa Rica - but raised in the United States since age 3. Been driving cars and riding motorcycles for many years. Yesterday I turned in my '04 BMW M3 Coupe and picked up my '05 Silver Mamba (170/200). HOLY COW!!! The Viper is a monster in every respect in comparision to the M3 - but unfortunately that also goes for comfort. I had never even sat in a Viper before so I can tell you "everything" is shocking and fun (except for the heat in the cabin from the side pipes). I was wearing shorts so I think I lost most of the hair below my knee on my left leg. I was back at the dealership this morning picking up the two keyless entry transmitters and asked the Sales Manager and Viper Tech about the heat coming into the cabin via the side pipes. They both said they had never heard of such a thing and that no Viper owner has ever complained about this at their dealership - but that nevertheless they want me to take it in on Friday to see what the problem may be. From what I've read on this forum they will not find anything wrong and the only fix would be aftermarket products and cat removal. Anyhow, just wanted to say hi. Any advice and tips would be more than welcome as I am a total newbie to the Viper.
