    Hello All!

    I took a test drive in a P3D this afternoon at the Natick Mall store in MA (I was the first they said, yay for nagging! And shout out to their team!:)).

    First of all, wow! What a fast car. No need to repeat as this has been said in many reviews; they are all true. No car in this class has given me so many smiles per miles.

    My bigger complement was handling. This car is quite nimble for the weight and extremly neutural. I was able to let it get away a bit in my short drive and the balance was fantastic. Tires are comically inadequate for the car, but still gave a decent feel. I am by no means a pro race car driver, but have driven many classes of sports cars and dailyed a GT86/BRZ/FR-S for about 60k miles, so am well versed in handling.

    The white seats are stunning (see my other post ;)).

    Just wanted to let MA locals and New Englanders know!

    P.S.: I made an earlier post, but screwed up on posting the pictures and had a horrible title, asked mods to remove it. Yell at me for double posting if you wish; I deserve it! 20180801_140842.jpg

    I drove the P3D w/ performance at Dedham yesterday. They had a couple there.
    Car is fast (SOC ~75%) but not noticeably more than my S75D. Ride was very good on 20” wheels. Transient responses trounce MS and car is very willing to change directions. Despite this, and I am a buyers remorse type person, I do not regret buying MS. Two totally different cars but clearly from the same momma.

    I don’t think you could go wrong with either one for different reasons. I enjoyed the performance and handling a bit more in the P3D. Plus added range...
