    The "I just drove a..." Thread

    This thread is for when you drive a nice car and don't have anywhere to share the sweet feeling of driving a nice car! Pictures are also welcome.

    I forgot to add my latest memorable experience to this thread!

    First week of August I got to drive a Flying Spur. On the freeway. At twice the speed limit. And through clover-leafs. At ridiculous speeds. Badass tank of a car.
    I'm going to eat breakfast. And then I'm going to change the world.

    I drove my dad's new S-class this week (he's had it for a month or so). It's a two edged sword. With a positive and a negative side: it's fast, silent, extremely comfortable etc. BUT the car drives you, you don't drive the car. I didn't feel in control at all. Gimme my Clio or my mum's E-class when it comes to driving pleasure.

    150km in a Mazda6 2.0.

    I actually think this is a good idea for a thread. I guess it was expectable though, after quite a lot of trying

    Since my bro borrowed a 350Z from a friend few days ago, he letted me drive around the neighborhood with TCS off, only the automatic gearbox made me feel no difference between having TCS and not having it. It felt slow even in full throttle actually, punches like a F355 I rode in once, except the engine sound was a little dull. Surprisingly good grip and control around corners for a FR car, but not fast, although for an average Joe it's better to live with than more fun cars like the MX-5. But for me, I'd rather take a Mk2 MX-5 other than 350Z sized/weighed cars for a first car since I love thrill more than better engine soundtrack.

    And yes I don't have a license yet. :-D

    I haven't driven anything in over a week and a half. It is the downside of going away to college and not being able to take your car.

    A couple weeks ago I drove a Ford Explorer on a semi twisty mountain road. Was a new experience for me because I'm used to hot hatches and basically small cars. Proved you can have fun on anything that has wheels... I just tried to be as smooth as possible with all controls, which in turn allowed for good speed and not too bad economy. Just have to anticipate everything more than on small car. The only thing I really didn't feel comfy with was the brakes...

    It's difficult to describe with words just how proud of you we all are.
