Yes you did. But you know what, you admired the 308 just from a TV show (just like me). Now you are totally psyched 'cause you finally got one. Well you are now going to find out that it is really and truly a driver's car and not a movie star's car. The thing is basically a freakin' street legal racing car and it is highly tuned and designed to run at very high RPMs. The parts require closer tolerances and adjustments.ptiflipiou said:Thank you.

...I bought a brand new hobby! :wink:
Yeah, check it hot, shut it off and wait just a few minutes.
