Don't worry about seafoam, such a small chance of hydrolock and only if its done wrong. In order to hydrolock, at least one cylinder must be half of the volume filled with liquid. Done right, not too often, at 20,000 miles then maybe at 100,000 miles, no chance of hurting it. As for the way I drive, I take it pretty easy mostly, but I feel like if I take it too easy, she gets upset and drives sluggish. So, when the mood strikes, or some dumbass European piece of garbage driving German dude tries to act tough, I put him in his place and the pony seems happy with it.

I definitely get worse gas mileage when I stomp it. And my girlfriend feels the same way. Always complaining about how I love my Pony more.

In the city I keep her around 45 on a 35 speed limit, but people in Houston suck at driving so I creep like a grandpa until people get pissed and pass me. I drive pretty hard around sports cars though, and On the highway is another story 60 to 70 at half a tank or less. maybe 75 to 85mph with a full tank of gas. I've noticed that I don't have as many close calls when I drive super slow I make sure she stays looking good.

I let my girl drive it a couple times, mainly because she's obsessed with it. They don't really sell them here in Germany and all Germans think they're waaay better than they are. I had a guy almost legitimately upset at Germany because I had to drive it here in the winters (they're bad here). Pretty funny actually. But other than that, no one drives my baby.

I'm the same way she's the only one. Mom asked to borrow it because I have a secondary vehicle shut her down lol. Is it expensive to get it imported there?

I live in schweinfurt Germany and am in the army, so it shipped for free thanks to Uncle Sam. It's a riot having one. Mine would sell for about thirty five thousand euro (about forty US), so it's a rare car here. Went to a car show last weekend, and it was me and my Pony, a stock challenger and a truck... All others were euro trash. It was awesome.

I live in California but I know that area of Frankfurt very well! I have cousins that live there, they make schnapps and sell it at the local Shwaheim market! Excellent stuff ! I love Germany and try to visit every 5 years it so.
