Granted, things are probably different when you downshift with the paddle or in a manual..... but still, even if you are in auto and want to quickly speed up and move over ...... there was no response.
screw that nonsense. i want to go and i want to go now.

That and the electric steering/ Start stop technologies

Give me back my steering feels and linear powerband
I heard good things from the 1st gen x35 power wise. I didnt realize they changed anything. so why did they? and whats hpfp?

i saw about 30 officers shield block and surround a person in a wheelchair ... at first i thought it was a possible bomb scare or something
because today was the inauguration of the new president in south korea
a WOMAN ... who is the daughter of a previous president who was assassinated

anyway
i was like "oh snap..." but i wasn't ready to take the pic when the wheelchair person was being surrounded
but turns out there was a disabled persons group protesting their mistreatment or something like that
there were about 40-50 wheelchair bound people further down the block

I am seeing some distinct color aberration ... circular cutoff in the sky over the palace gate
I believe it is the nd filter ... not sure if that is normal and within acceptable range
Or if the filter is a dud
I don't see it in every pic ... but the ones I do see are pretty bad
