I'm still driving the 328 conservatively for the first 2000 kms but to date it can't match the XR6T for shear fanging fun accelerating up an on-ramp.

Oh - and mine's Melbourne Red in Melbourne too.


You will probably find this handy

You'll definitely have more fun after the run in period in sports + mode.

Found this online for the XR6T "The sprint from 0-100km/h takes around 5.6 seconds "

The 328 matches that speed IRL. I'm just starting to use Sports + more regularly now at 800kms . In the meantime keep the rev below 4 which is hard.
