Lets just say I have shared ideas in the past, and pointed out some major issues in designs. These days though car companies are run by profit (outside of the small boutique firms) and the decision makers are more interested in keeping shareholder happy than anything else. They are right about one thing most buyers know very about cars and about how to drive them properly. There is more interest in how advanced the tech is in the infotainment system than how well the suspension setup is. I have no problem with that, and it gives me more things to change. That is my kicks as you call it, I owned many English sports cars when I was younger and you needed to know how to fix them or you would be stuck a lot. I am not a talented as I once was with tools, but my mind works just as well and I can instruct those to do what physically I am no longer capable of. It is a full circle in many ways, after my 430 gearshift coupe I said I was done with Ferrari's but I ended up buying another 360, 430, Calf T & 458 Spider, none of which I kept more than a few months. Without emotion which I have come to see influences most of you I did not find the cars all that interesting. I would rather have a 4C, Cayman, Evora 400 (I could go on but I think you get my point), I see Ferrari as cars people own to look at and be seen in, neither of those things matters (In fact I very uncomfortable with that),to me, and not really to drive like it was your last day on earth. You get of car forums and most people have no idea what type of tires they have on their cars, and in most dealerships they have service techs, they dont even pretend to call them mechanics anymore.
