I picked her up today. My GTA. And what an amazing car. The sound, the ride, everything. Simply stunning. Everything (times ten) what I expected and dreamt of.
I have to admit, I felt a bit sad watching my Selespeed (some sexy looks also). Just look at her shining in the pictures. Lucky person, the next owner.
The GTA however, is in a different league.
Apart from a unevenly worn backtyre, wich makes for some strange vibrations / resonance in the boot, she's just perfect. Two new goodyears eagle f1 gsd3 on the rear will fix that.
The sounds is awesome. The handling is superb. The 6th gear is very (VERY!!) nice at normal speeds. Low revs, low sound, plenty of oompf.
The only real let down is the standard soundsystem. A bit of a difference. The Bose system in the Selespeed wasn't all that bad, especially compared to this. It needs a subwoofer.
Is it just me, or is second gear the best gear to drive away from a traffic light in a GTA? No need to shift from first to second and still faster then almost everything. Probably could do it in third and it would almost be an semi-automatic. Start in third and shift into 6th at 120 kmh.
I Love this car.
Sweet dreams. I'm gonna drive her all night..........
