it has all the options. ive never driven a car with hud and i want hud. tapshift kicks A$$ u can shift down to 1st and punch it and throws u in your seat. exhaust for being stock sounded very very good. u cant hear or tell when the displacement on demand kicks in and out.
all i got to say i want one BAD.
The tap shift is actually pretty shitty. All it is is your normal shifter thats on the console is basically adapted to those controls. Everything you can do with the tapshift you can do with a car without it, you just have to reach down and use the regular shifter. If you went down the road at 30mph in your Bonnie and dropped your shifter to 1, it would go down to first gear and you could take off. The problem with the tapshift is you can't really hold it in gear longer, it will shift for you if it thinks you've held it there to long. Its a cool little toy, but does absolutely nothing for performance.
The new GXP'* are very nice cars though, I wouldn't mind getting my hands on one.
