My wife, daughter and two grand daughters just recently took the W8 from Oklahoma City to Houston and returned. My daughter did all the driving and she reported that the car handled superbly and that she was surprised at how much power it had. The only problem was trying to find premium (not ethanol) gasoline in Texas. They went through a half dozen stations on the way down and the way back looking for non-ethanol gas. Nevertheless I was pleased that all the work I have had done on the car proved to be more than sufficient for a safe and comfortable trip for my loved ones.

Makes it all worthwhile. When they got back to OKC my 13 year old grand daughter said, "BaPa can I have this car when I start driving?" I said "sure!"
