: Picked up another V

After 3 tough weeks without a V I picked up a 2011 Black Diamond Sedan. My 09 had 6100 miles on it when I bought it. The steering feels slightly tighter and the auto trans deff needs a tune but after driving my car with 650+whp my new one feels like a turd. Even my fience who could car less about a car commented on how this one isn't slow but even she can tell a big differance. I picked it up from getting clear bra'ed and detailed today and I'm liking the black diamond more and more. I'm trying to lay out a exact modding plan but I already have a heat exchanger for it and Eibach springs on the way. If I have time I will toss it on the dyno tomorrow or Wednesday for a baseline. Here are a few pics I took this afternoon.

Welcome back to the fam. You are the second person on the boards in the last week to convert from prior 2G V sedan owner to current 2G V sedan owner.
