    I'm amazed at how much plastic has invaded the engine compartments of new vehicles......

    From this....

    Test drove the Nissan Z and this was the weirdest thing to get used to. Kept expecting to hit my head on the steering wheel when downshifting.

    Where it would really be cool is on the track. Unfortunately that's the one place the MINI's rev matching doesn't work very well (Not sure about the 370Z's, I have driven one, and I kinda liked the rev matching, but I haven't driven one on the track). At least it can be turned off.

    Luckily they didn't compare it to a "R"
