Most fun you can have with your clothes on!

My 2012 GT 500 has the performance pack, electronics package, and Recaro seats. The performance pack gives a stiff ride -- great on a road course, good if you like to feel the road, but unnecessarily harsh for long road trips. The electronics package works fine. The Recaro seats are wonderful. It took me a while to get comfortable in them, but once you get them adjusted you'll rather sit there than in your favorite easy chair. The 5.4 liter super charged engine is the real wonder. The sound puts a big cheesy smile on my face every time (I've owned the car since 2011 and turning the key still turns my crank)! The power is intoxicating -- if you like to be shoved back into your seat by pressing the pedal on the right then this is the car for you. If you don't want to ever be sideways on an entrance ramp at 60 miles an hour then maybe look for a different car (that was me on the test drive at the dealer eight years ago). Told myself if I can save this I'm definitely buying this beast! Bonus that I can take my wife and two kids along for the ride -- my kids are 10 and 12 so the back seat works for us, won't work for too much longer though as the back seat is relatively tight.
