If you mean... put turkey on the table then yes... yes we do (maybe). I'm Asian, I just follow the trend.

drove the LC today.

engine- probably the star of the show. its got alot of character and it couldn't see myself getting bored of it. pulls decently well given how heavy the thing is. more 'muscle car' in sound than something european like an e92 or 458. its not the fastest thing in the world but sound helps make up for it. and you can actually USE most of the engine regularly... unlike an f8x or gt3 which will land you in jail very quick.

transmission - bit of a letdown for me. its great when you are just cruising in auto at low rpms not hearing anything / eating up miles, and great when you have it in sport+ upshifting at redline or downshifting into a turn. Its not good at the in between area: when you want to go for 5-7/10ths and sit in the high rpms and hear the engine at 1/2 to 3/4 throttle and shift, or even full throttle short shifting in the mid range. lots of delay which spoils the experience. I feel like an M-DCT or PDK would have done WONDERS for this car. With any of my fun cars i like to be in full control and shifting paddles, i almost never put my 458 or GTR in auto when i had them

Ride - good. its still firm for but does a good job ironing out bumps better than an f8x. you feel them but the car doesn't ever 'crash' over imperfections or potles. Steering is very numb. you definitely feel the heft around turns so i'll give them credit that the chassis gives good feedback to the driver. brakes had good feedback and feel. It is a great car for eating up miles in comfort/auto mode, at one point i looked down and was doing 75 in a 45 lol.

Interior / Exterior - very nice as expected. this car was black/black which hides most of the details but its definitely a 100k interior in terms of fit and finish.

This was a 2018 though and i think the 2019+ models did address the stiff suspension and transmission issues.

So long story short, at a 30k price delta i didn't feel a strong urge to dump the M3 after the test drive. Main reason being the transmission.

Might be finally joining the SUV ranks. The wife test drove a very nicely specced 20 Cayanne S. She loved the thing and I have to admit it was very nice. Plenty of giddy up for a DD, heated/ventilated front and rear seats with the quad zone climate control. The 14 way seats were surprisingly comfortable/supportive and the cabin was a very nice place to cruise. It had the optional air ride with rear steering which was impressive to experience from a ride and handling standpoint, pretty crazy what they can do with vehicles this heavy. I can see why people like these things, definitely more versatile for families than our C63S and other sedans. I love that thing though.

Edit: Funny enough it is Dolomite Silver to.

There is a reason why I love the Macan. It is fairly small though, so that is the problem. I don't mind the Cayenne but I just like having PDK, even if it is technically an Audi unit in the Macans.
