      If you don't care about gas milage and you like performance, think about finding a W12. If you buy a V8, just don't drive the 12; you'll be just fine. ;)

      You were a brave guy! My '82 Delorean was not fun at all, anywhere near 85, and it was lowered and on P7's. The W12 is light years away from that noisy bucket of bolts. ;)

      How new are your tires? It sounds like maybe a belt could be under stress at higher speed and might be separating. W12's can eat up front tires, especially if they have some age on them.

      I replaced the heated wheel with the wood one. I really don't miss the heat as the temperature here in SoCal rarely got cold enough to use it. The light and switch still function though.
