    Thanks Bruce!
    How's the 4C working out? Curious how you'd compare it to the Exige you had.

    Hi, Mondo. Good to hear from you.

    Compared to my Lotus Exige, my Alfa Romeo 4C is: Faster to both 60 and 100 mph; Sexier; Flatter through the twisties; More comfortable; (Though still spartan) more luxurious, with deviated stitching, leather everywhere and lots of tastefully-exposed carbon fiber; Easier to get in and out of; Preferred by the wife; Equally dependable (being Italian, surprise!); Already appreciating, rather than depreciating at this point in the ownership cycle; Capable of shifting in slightly more than a single eyeblink (DCT); 7" longer, 6" wider, and roughly the same height; 400 pounds heavier, remarkable given all that carbon fiber, but then again, it is a much larger car; Equipped with better standard brakes; Better protected from stone chips by extensive standard factory protective paint film; Equipped with significantly more powerful headlights; Better at prioritizing and sharing data through its LCD dash, which keeps a tach and speedo front and center, but also highlights g-force through turns, driving mode selected (by color-coding the entire display), problems like low fuel and so on; Possessed of a deeper and more resonant voice; Possessed of better rearward sightlines; Lower in its center of gravity; Sexier; Did I say sexier?

    Yeah, seeing how this is the last year for U.S. I can see some exclusivity. Glad you're loving it.
