I never really have anyone pull up next to me and want to "race". Not in my 335, or even in some sport cars of my youth. You all live near race tracks or something? :-)

My dream is to have someone stop at a light and honk three times....then I would let him burn some tire tread, whip into the intersection before visually clearing it (hopefully getting lucky and not have someone run the pink as I don't wish accidents on anyone), and I would get a good belly laugh as they race off.....

The way I look at it is this......if you are wondering if your car is faster than mine then it probably isn't....if you know your car is faster than mine than it likely is......job done and no risk involved.

same with the hyundais

I owned a 2010 Genesis coupe 2.0T GT and they totally did over-rate it.

does a G37 and Genesis coupe really look similar ?

Friggin Hyundai really shoulda gave the sedan and coupe different names.
