    Congrats and welcome to the Boss club!

    After daily driving the RS for a few years, I'm so used to it as a daily when I drive the Boss it's actually a disappointment to drive it on the street. The sounds and power are incredible compared to the RS and much more comfortable inside. But in L.A. traffic I just cant ring it out and have fun with it.

    Thanks ,...just waiting for some better weather so I can enjoy some quality seat time but I have found my initial drives very comfortable. Man , I don't know how you don't lose your mind driving in L.A....I don't have the patience. Luckily I live in the country and don't have to contend with rush hour traffic. Even my town has traffic circles so you hardly ever have to come to a full stop.!!

    Even my 10 mile commute gets ridiculously frustrating driving in LA. So many god damn idiots behind the wheel here that don't pay attention (texting like muppets) / don't follow driving rules (putting along in the left lane, smug prius are the worste offenders)/ just don't know how to drive period..... Dashcam is mandatory here since the assholes will hit your car then deny it was their fault....
