Bought this lighter car with better power to weight ratio to also be a track car. But, the economy was slow and the tires were a bad size 215/45/18, in which no R-compound track tires were available. This keep me from actually getting the vehicle on the track before I sold it. Definitely a fast car, but also a bit soul-less.

My career once again dictated a change. Had to have a 4-door sedan for work. Traded the VW R32 at a Saab dealership for a new 2006 Aero. Good looking, but soul-less vehicle. Virtually no aftermarket parts available for it. Resale value concerns also started becomimg a factor.
