    Congratulations! I got my 997 on Wednesday--I love it. Can you dial the telephone using the keypad on the dash? Are there letters under the keypad numbers? There is no telephone option that will work with the keypad here in the U.S. even though I can buy a GSM phone that will work with 1800 MHz systems.


    of course you can dial directly from the keypad ,and if you can also dial from the phonebook and the important number list from the center dial under the rpm ,using the stick of the on board computer ,very practical

    No, there are not. The American custom of converting telephone numbers into names or words as a mnemonic device is not so widespread in other parts of the world.

    It wasn't so much a custom but a requirement. Area codes before were much larger, so the 2? digit prefix was more important. I remember ads on TV that said "Call now to RIchmond 5-5555". Kinda like city codes used around the world now except we would have several in a large city like Los Angeles.

    Well, they definately are to send SMS via Mobile phone. From what I've heard you Americans just received that technology short while ago? Am I right on that?

    ...its got a very nice weather all year long with 4 real seasons,we have rain 50days a year ,the rest is pure sun ,average temperature all year long 28deg.celsius ,in the winter its got veeery nice ski stations,in march,april and may you can go swimming in the morning and drive 30minutes to the mountain at 2000m to ski for the rest of the day ,in my opinion (and i traveled almost everywhere )its got one of the best nightlife in the world ,restaurants,pubs ,discos and nightclubs are full all week and all year long ,lebanese stayed hidden in the bombs shelter from 1975 to 1990 so now they are regaining the lost time ,they love to have fun ; we have a hospitality that is a real tradition and that visitors appreciate a lot ; and one good thing for you single guys ,since during the war a lot of men left lebanon to find a job ,right now we have 7 womens for one men (this is an official poll)and believe me ,like marcus said ,they are really beautiful...
    ...



    Do you rent rooms?

    Thanks very much for this explanation - I would love to see some first hand photos of Lebanon! I don't think RC minds, does he? Cultural exchange should be welcome always and everywhere!

    Just out of curiousity, have you been born in Lebanon? Hope it's not to informal to you!

    Would you recommend travelling to neighbor countries when visiting your country?

    Finally congratulations on your car! I suppose -20 sport suspension is not that big of an issue?

    Re: got my 997s today!!! finnallllllllyyyyyyyy!!!!!!!!
