She's is home, and she is happy.:lol:

Describe in one word her performance: WOW:willy: :willy:

My First Impressions:

The R/L is a whole different breed of SKY. Comparing the Base to the R/L is like comparing Black to White, they are both colors, but that is where the similarity ends!!!!

The performance is incredible, pushes you back in the seat, the stabilitrac, traction control, and competition mode are awesome. Quite frankly, having driven both auto & manual SKY's, I would take the auto over the manual in the Red LIne, hands down. The shift points are smooth, quick, and catch the power curve perfectly. She ii almost instant on when turbo boost hits, man she screams, She will high 8's/low 9's in the 1/8, I can see 13.98's/14.00 flats in the quarter mile. The R/L suspensionm feels great, I see no need for an upgrade, the car is a fine tuned piace of art. I am spoiled now, I have seen the future, and it screams SKY R/L. I might even sell Serenity, she is a great car i n herself, but I am converted.:lol:

An amazing thing about the 2.0 turbo is the incredible torque curve and power range. This car literally pushes you back in the seat, It is so cool the way it has almost instant power, I recommend to all future R/L owners to get the feel of her before you hammer it, cause they can get there a** around on you if you are using the competition mode.

On a lighter note: (get the pun) The dash lights and Speedo/Tach gauges are much more visibile than the base. I like the whole instrument cluster fascia better than the base. More later!!!!

Did ya get her sideways yet??? :lol: :lol: :lol:

P.S. Be very careful on freshly paved roads in competition mode. Cause when you slip the rear and end up on the freshly painted divider line, let's just say it gets interesting. :D
