    Okay folks, never, ever, drive a CS. Don't do it. No way. Resist with all your might. Well, not unless you want to have dreams about driving the coolest car this side of an Enzo!!

    I've read every magazine article on this beast, and from what I can see, all the magazine editors ought to get new jobs, or be taken out back and flogged for incompetence. Nothing they wrote can prepare you for this car. Compared to my '04 Modena:

    * The steering is much tighter.
    * The road feel is much better (but with no more harshness).
    * The above just plants the car on the road.
    * The seats were 100% improvement over my Daytonas (better fit and feel) for me.
    * The sensory bark of the engine was intoxicating, and loud, when getting on it, but very driveable at legal speeds. I don't see how Ferrari ever certified it in the US.
    * The shifting was much faster and crisper than the Modena, and the downshifts made me giggle like a kid.
    * The brakes had much better feel to them (and I only used 10% of their capability).
    * The front bodywork has a much more aggressive look.
    * The interior cabin appeared to be rock solid, even with the carbon fiber all over the place (no squeaks or rattles that I noticed).

    Thomas sure has nice taste in cars!

    I can't wait to see Albert's with the stripe! - Tim

    here you go - that’s how it started with me - now there is only one car I want to have and drive

    I wouldn't be sure about the Enzo as a complete package - with the higher weight I doubt that you can slide it as you can the CS - the CS drives like a perfect balance go-cart

    not so sure about that... imo, that's like following in the footsteps of porsche with their lame 996 turbo cab.
