    Just sad that someone would destroy such a beautiful car for no reason. Probably should make note of the VIN WBAEJ13493AH62054 in case it pops up somewhere in the future.

    Looking forward to your report. Personally, I find the shifting of my Z8 and E39 M5 to be less smooth than some of my other cars. It would be nice to find an easy way to improve shift quality.
