My OD hit 1500 miles so I decided to celebrate the end of the breakin and take my B9T up into the mountains to test its performance. I was delighted. Sure it is a bit heavy but the AWD is fantastic. Very little body roll cornering at speeds just inside the limits of tire adhesion. Good balance with a hint of oversteer and a feeling that it would come loose incementally rather than snap, although I was not willing to push to that point. The throttle response in sport mode is good, although using "manumatic" shifting gets the most performance. Exhaust note at higher revs is nice and throaty. I was quite surprised at that. Brakes are good for a heavy vehicle.
