This review explains exactly how I felt about the car after sitting in it. Doesn't feel like a BMW, feels like Toyota. And it does feel special.

Yup! I thought the same thing. Has a “racecar-like” presence to it doesn’t it?

Mentally Ill people with strong hints of narcissism would believe what you just said was accurate. You were banned for incessant personal attacks, not your so called "positive comments". You were a toxic and cancerous troll on there. It's like when the clouds finally clear up and the sun comes out, that's what it was like banning your account.
HAHA I almost spit out my drink laughing to the clearing clouds comment

Felt like I was watching a Toyota sales training video. The dude just sounded happy someone let him borrow a car.

In person the exterior looks better in person than in photos. The scale of the car makes more sense and angles are prettier. Being 6 foot 5 it looked too small in photos but I do fit fine. The interior is average. Nothing special there, the digital display is nice but lacks other types of gauges you'd want to see there. Just a standard BMW interior down to the smell.

I'll wait for a year or two for issues to be sorted and aftermarket to take hold to see if long term ownership is a thing. I have never and will never eat the initial depreciation on a car buy buying new.

Based on what I see and hear the car will make decent power to am around the 5-550 mark but the trans is a question mark right now. Would make a nifty daily driver.

That bout it.
That’s good. I do wish it had gauges that showed the cars vital measurements.

If you watch his X3 review, it almost sounds like an echo at the 4 min mark. lol

Titan 93 tune + downpipe = stock C6 base

That's disappointing. I would expect it to be a lot faster as it's dyno numbers suggest. I am curious if that C6 is truly just a muffler delete. It spun hard when he shifted and I've never a stock C6 do that.

The dude in the white supra doesn't know what he's doing. His reaction is off by almost a second and he over shifted at least once.

They do mention in the comments of the video that the driver was messing around with different gear shifts to figure out the best method.

I get messing around with traction settings for launch. But for roll racing you either leave it in D and floor it or let it hang in a specific gear and upshift just before the rev limiter. It's not rocket science. Skipping gears and launching late is just bad driving.

Anyway, from all the videos popping up I noticed that just leaving it in Drive with sport mode on is the best for consistent shifts.

I'm not the driver so I don't know what they're thinking. Its just the explanation they were giving in the comments.

A manual LS3 C6 is a 116-118MPH car out of the box, so considering the MKV hung with it it's not that disappointing (but it is). The tire spin means nothing; easy to do on an aggressive shift unless you're on a really good tire. I'm sure the C6 was stock aside from the drivermod otherwise it would have been a beating. The LS stuff really wakes up with even basic bolt-ons.
