    BACK in BLACK... Diamond Tri-coat!

    Hey Fellas,

    Well it's been 6 months since I sold my V1... been in hibernation, and low and behold I have returned... picked up a nice Birthday present a few days ago... 2011, 4k miles... already plasti-dipped the side vents and front grille yesterday...

    Congrats, Rob! How do you like it so far? How do you compare it to the V1?

    If I didn't lease mine, I would have done the grille already. I love the way it looks!

    i like paddle shifters... lol, jk... the price was right after much negotiation, and it wasn't far from home... the only manual i found that I liked with low miles was in el paso, tx, but it was an 09... it's going to be my DD for now, and stop and go traffic during my commute is a PITA every day...

    Have you ordered the shift paddles that others have installed yet? If I had an auto, I'd have gotten that immediately...
