    Default Another WA Gen 2 Black 3 MPS

    Hi All, had my new black 3 MPS for about a month, loving it, but not had a chance to have that much of a drive. I only just did 1,000 kms this morning.

    I was followed along Leach Hwy a few weeks ago by an Aluminium one, man they look good in the rearview mirror

    Andy as mentioned in the members ride thread, keep an eye on the cruise section planning one for early next year!

    PerthMPS, I am also from Perth. I have seen two other Gen2 MPS, being another black one on the road and the aluminium one parked in Vic Park near Sebastian's restaurant. Will keep a look out for the cruises.

    I think I may have carded the Aluminium one a few weeks back, it was parked in the Park Centre Shopping Centre car park, anyone here?

    I had a little encounter with a black gen 2 driving toward floreat along lake monger. It looked quite good in the rear view mirror despite the grin. Dude reminded me of myself when I first got my gen1 - 20odd k's over the speed limit most of the journey.
    I was spewin that I had to turn off and couldn't have more fun

    DIGS, was that you in the Red MPS (Gen1)? I saw two Gen 1's along Lake Monger that night.

    Yeah mate. I had to turn off just before Newman Highschool.

    I was the guy who was going to slide past ya at the lights (as you were stationary and I was comin up from behind) [intersection of selby I think?]then pulled out after seeing you take off.

    Good work on buying into the family mate. Hope to see you on the road again - all good natured of course

    Yep definately remember you! That was the first time I got a few of the traction control type systems to engage. I am having fun trying to get used to the way she reacts and performs.

    I came very close to buying a Gen 1 about two years ago and would definately have got a red one at the time.

    good to see that I "facilitated" your advanced driving systems kicking in Andy

    I reckon the black is the standout gen 2 colour by a mile. Same goes for true red in the gen 1.

    The lads at parkland rang me to see how the new mps compared when it first came out, and I was impressed at the delivery of power (less torque steer etc). I hadn't seen one on the road while driving mine though, and I will admit to goading you into testing out your rolling accel prior to you being infront of me

    I drove mine pretty ridiculously for the first 3 months. Only cost me 1 demerit and some coin - then I realised 120 down the 50 streets was probably going to end badly if I kept going. Now I am much pickier where I feed the turbo.

    I live in Vic Park btw

    Hi Evil MPS. That was not me, sorry. I did see a Red MPS the other day, christmas eve, just outside BP on Mill Point Road - we both acknowledged each other.
    Digs. I am always keen to give her a go off the line, but usually slow down. Whilst I am having a bit of fun atm, I usually drive fairly calmly. And I am in East Vic Park!
