Most excellent adventure with Mika

     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
I just spent a bit of time with RPiM5 Dave and the fabulous Mika. The photos and videos posted on this vehicle do not do this car justice. The color in person is almost iridescent. The fit and finish of this wrap is borderline flawless. But the SOUND...the best words I can use to describe it is bone chilling! Dave warned me to stand back on the cold start. I'm like, whatever. When he started it, I must have jumped back three feet! I have never heard anything like it. It's not an idle, it's chaos! I spend a lot of time around full race prepped vehicles, and Mika's bark is much louder. We had the opportunity to travel under a number of the tunnels under Capitol Hill, and the sound is astonishing! Yet, under cruise it's totally docile. And the attention this Beast gets is hilarious. Felt like a rock star with all the passing phone camera shots, especially in car crazy DC. I'd like to thank Dave for his hospitality. Unfortunately, now my car feels REALLY inadequate.

I had the same experience with Dave last year when I visited him in San Diego. That car is amazing I plan on doing the same setup. I was not a believer in the F10 until I heard his car in person...it was intoxicating!!!

Thanks for kind words DrKev. I'm gonna have to make it up to your neck of the woods one day.

Also thanks for letting me test drive your 6MT M5. I was astounded by how much more connected to the car I felt through the shifter!

My last visit to DC was 5 years ago. We should plan a NY to DC cruise and meet up with Dave this summer! BTW if youre ever coming to NYC again let us know in advance so we can plan something. I would just love to hear that car in person!
