*pretty fast* - I don't think there are very many Q's that run those types
of numbers!  I am not the wrench/nerd that you are when it comes to these
things.  I need layman/subjective commentary (advanced suspension means
little to me - it seems Corvettes have advanced everything yet they don't
pull my trigger if you know what I mean).  Does the SC handle well compared
to a type 44?  Is there that *feel* that German cars tend to have?  Or, is
the care fast and numb compared to an Audi.  Just wondering...
