You know, you may have a point there. Although I had the car for several hours, I didn't abuse the privilege. However, I did try out its capabilities on more than one occasion. It was the fact that I couldn't get a clean, lag free start, I kept trying. Perhaps there is a purpose built delay.

As I stated, once the lag disappeared, the car was terrific and fast.

Thanks for the invite. Not sure when I will next visit your fabulous city, but I will keep it in mind.
