A friggin AMAZING weekend!

Alright, I'm sorry I don't have any pictures to back this up, but I had the most amazing weekend ever. My bday wknd too at that.

I test drove an amazing number of cars today. From first to last: 2003 SVT Cobra, 2002 BMW 325Xi, 2003 BMW X5, 2005 Audi A4 3.0, (revved up) 2003 and 2005 Subaru WRX.

It all started after lunch. I was with my dad and we were driving the new X3 out to Best Buy to pick up a flash-drive for me. I noticed a yellow mustang in the Saturn lot, but upon close inspection, it was a cobra. Anyways, we kept driving. On the way back, i wanted to see the Cobra. Then I found it was a SVT model. Hot poopy, I had to drive it. Salesperson was real friendly and let me at it. Then we stopped by the BMW dealership we got our car at, where I proceeded to also test out a 325xi. My dad wanted teh X5 for kicks, so we both got a small feel for the car. Next door was the Audi dealership, where I tested one of the new A4's. Lastly, we stopped at Subaru dealership. I would have taken a WRX on a spin, but we were short on time, and only got to rev up the engine.

Commentary-
SVT Cobra: the most insanely powerful car I've ever been in. The supercharged 8 was too much damn fun. $30K, 18k miles. Yellow.
325Xi: very very balanced car, very nimble as well. I think BMW's transmissions are notchy and kind of long in their throws.
X5: it's a damn SUV. That's all.
A4: I don't like the interior. Doesn't feel that tight and it totally felt awkward. Engine is just meh. (after driving that cobra, anything is just "meh")
WRX: I love this thing. I think that's what my next car is gonna be. 05 model hopefully.

Anyways, that's my saturday afternoon in a wrap.

Holy shit, I was shaking after driving the SVT Cobra. That thing has SOOOOO much power. The EVO i drove a few month back felt like it ain't got nothing on the SVT on the straights.

EVO felt a lot nimbler in its steering. Also, turbo lag. The SVT just took shot off of its starting point. Something to shit your pants to.
