Yup, they make most everything else feel slow. You should know this if you've been poking around here but - check the tires, if they're the original runflats you'll want that to be the first thing you change. If/when you do exhaust, budget for high flow cats also so you can do the job once. Your feet will thank you.
Congrats, what a great way to start the year, you will not regret it! You also bring up a great point, the value of the asset of the VCA forums as the information shared over the years is invaluable. I recently came across a poll from over 3 years ago comparing which car would be more collectible the 2010 Final Edition or the 2010 Limited Edition SSG ACR in which I purchased, the FE got the nod, but I enjoyed reading the comments by all of the posters. Good tuff, enjoy the car Mace66!!!
I'm in the process of buying an '09 ACR from a dealer in Chicago, and having it shipped here. I would really like to see one in person around here first (I live in Lothian, MD, about five miles south of Upper Marlboro), and I'm thinking of going to a dealer in Stafford, Virginia, tomorrow, to look an an '09 they have for sale. Hopefully they will let me test drive it.
