I would like to see your videos(As I am sure you would take some) of performance and a review of pulling the jet skis!

I am kinda jealous!
Last month I took it on its first real trip pulling. Waverunner, 3 adults in car, and the gear for a 4-day weekend

Car handled very nicely. As expected, it has more torque then the Nox V6, and at lower rpms. Not once did it need to downshift out of 6th, or feel like it was lurking up a hill. Just by myself the Nox would always downshift into 5th going on an overpass, on this same trip with near identical gear I would M5 it through the area between Tallahassee to Niceville because of the rolling hills, I felt the 6T70 was getting a workout with all the extra shifting (the 3.6 w/ 6T70 will not have this problem, well it doesnt in the Impala...and I dont think the weight difference will matter as the torque is in the low rpm band)

Averaged 35.3mpg for the entire trip (just over 1400miles, pulling most of them)

I am ordering an folding extension for my tralier, this will push it further back from the car and assist in unloading (will not have to backup as far). I'm going to lower the bunks on the waverunner as well, as it stands right now, the waverunner is slightly higher than the roof of the A3
