Thank you M5 - yes, 160 miles is quite some distance; I have always been a huge fan of Sir Colin Chapman and his mantra "performance through lightweight"....it's unlikely I will ever be in a position to own an Exige S, but one never knows.

Well , Actually I already have done that in 2013 ...It was for Mike Benvo in LA , he tuned my car (engine + DCT) with the remote OBD cable tune via Skype.
He received a big box of pralines from me in LA , because his customer service was/is outstanding !

He said ...Please send more !

Oh no - this is not good; so sorry to hear this; hopeful the four doctors recover @ 100% health; Italy's death toll in the past 24 hrs is nearly unbelievable - nearly 800 died.

The problem is how many patients they have touched while examining in the past week/s ...
The 4 doctors are cardiologists !

Italy and Spain are a disaster .... => https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/#countries
The death toll today in Italy = 651 / Spain = 375
According the latest in Italy 5476 people died from Corona .

Honoring your mother is a big deal

Hopeful that Germany's mortality rate stays low and does not spike.

Soaking off the stress....well done.
We FaceTimed with both of our daughters last eve for about an hour, and watched our two grand-boys running insane; it was so great to just see everyone and connect.

In all of our lives to-date, we have never experienced anything like this global pandemic. I will always have etched in my mind, where I was when I heard that the first plane had hit one of the Twin Towers in NY. I will always remember where I was when I heard of the first COVID-19 death in Washington state.

In the beginning of the virus , I agree . But for the moment they are very afraid. In most families someone died . Last week I saw a woman speaking , she was the only survivor in her neighborhood . The Police and the military is very focust the last 2 weeks .

I never expected to see such a global horror disaster in our generation...

That would be incredible, but out of my price range; the 08 Exige S is appx $45-$55K US; that's out of my range, but at least in the realm of "maybe"....
