Test drove one. Black, Auto, no recaros... Very very nice! I randomly called and they just pulled the thing off the truck 15 minutes prior. I pulled up in mine, 3 salesmen were out front checking out the new one, salesman i scheduled the appointment with says "lets take it for a spin". I was not going to argue. As others have said it is very, very smooth. I am sure there was some point long long ago when i thought the same thing about my V1. After a couple weeks im sure you will once again feel the road, or at least be able to predict what the car is doing. Not sure im in the market right now (depends on the Christmas bonus!!) May go back tomorrow to run some hypothetical #'s just in case :)

Regarding wheel hop, there was one point where i accidentally had some brief wheel spin. Salesman put it into "manual" mode, we were in 1st and i nailed it then quickly let off as i was expecting a frown from the salesman. He almost seemed disappointed i let up! I will say that the lack of wheel hop for those few seconds was awesome! :cloud9:

Here's the pics from my phone. Puts my V1 to shame :(

One thing i noticed (may have been mentioned before) was the turning radius seemed different... I maxed out the steering while backing out of that parking spot, seemed like only 1.5 turns on the steering wheel and thats it. Anyone else notice this? Definitely not a deal breaker, just seemed strange that i maxed out the steering in reverse. Maybe the steering wheel is just smaller and i turned it more than needed? Awesome car either way!

Never checked into it, but it may have a tighter steering ratio. Meaning it's radius for tight spaces could be the same, but it just takes less steering wheel wrestling to do them. Would mean it might be a bit more twichy on the highway though, but twisty roads would require less effort.
