I knew you'd enjoy yourself. Good on you, Andrew.
I never really thought about that one but now that you bring it up, I do like the gated shifter. It makes it feel more like you are engaging gears on a piece of machinery rather then just moving a selector. And you do get a distinct sound when you go into second and fourth. Instead of just controlling the transmission, the overall feel is that you have brought some of the transmission into the passenger compartment and you have a solid connection to it.Enzo250GTO said:Other things I noticed. Shifting to 2nd and 4th give you the nice sound on the gated shifter known only to Ferrari. To date I have driven a number of sports cars but Ferrari does have something special. It can't be put into words.
No hand-brake, the car isn't mine so I have to respect it. I would of course respect my own 308 but I would be more willing to push it above 100mph. Today I got to try the Lotus Esprite S4, and it was awesome. Very different from a 308 GTSi QV but you can't compare a 1982 to a 1994. However, it would make you happy to know after driving both I'd probably take the 308. Overall it was more fun.308ROB said:Enzo 250.
I'm happy you like the ride in the 308gts and I'm agree what your feelings
are about the car, i'm sure Pete will be in heaven now. so am I.
by the way, 90 miles/h ? was your handbrake still on. :lol: 308Rob

It was awesome. I also drove from Infineon to a winery but I forgot the name of the winery. It was a great weekend to say the least.Rosso said:Driving the 308 sounds like it was great from your description. Must have been a great drive too from SF to Infineon.
Yeah, wineries can have that effect!Enzo250GTO said:.... but I forgot the name of the winery
LOL, no way and I going to mix wine with the keys to a Ferrari or any car for that matter. I think the 10 hours of sun made me not care as I just wanted to get back in the car and come home.4kids3fish said:Yeah, wineries can have that effect!Enzo250GTO said:.... but I forgot the name of the winery
