Re: LT Love
OK, OK, Greg, I stand corrected. It is Das Boot - not Boat.
For some reason, the forum software wouldn't take DasBoot, so I just used DasBoat, hoping no one would notice. Guess I should've known better. It seems the BMW crowd is a little better educated than average...
And by the way, last summer, during a downpour on the way home from work, I hit a long deep puddle on the interstate going 65mph. I didn't have time to change lanes, just time enough to see the puddle. I was expecting a bad hydroplane episode, but The Boat went straight through it, without even a slight bobble. Just made a loud SSSSSSSS noise.
The Boat, and all LT's for that matter, are great going down the highway at 70mph in nice weather. But you really appreciate the LT in potential hydroplane situations, panic stops, 30 mph crosswinds, and Oh-my-god maneuvering.
Am I right?
