    Congrats, Dimitri. Very nice looking car.
    BTW: I'm very much interested to hear about the Porsche "community" in Lebanon. Any interesting stories?

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

    just as I test drove today in the rain - and you are absolutely right - what a fantastic drive - love it.. Enjoy!

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

    congrats for your 997s

    i have been to beirut for businness in april and stayed there for a week.delicious food,beautiful places,gorgeous women.but....only onme question

    where the hell are you going to drive that beauty...

    people drive crazy down there.no traffic respect in any way or matter.not to mention about the road and street maintence.huge holes everywhere.

    if i lived in beirut i probably buy a nice 4x4...

    greetings.

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

    Best wishes for a lot of enjoyment in your new ride. I have the same sense of slight bewilderment for lack of a better term as to where you can enjoy your car. As a westerner who has not traveled to your area, our impression is of bombed out roads and other hazards associated with a war torn region. Is my impression way off the mark? How many p-cars does that dealer sell?

    Sounds like Manhattan to me ....but hang out on MadAve in 60s-80s on a Sat and you'll often see some interesting race-bred sportscars doing SUV duty....gotta enjoy your toys no matter how difficult the surroundings

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

    thanks for your posts guys ,always a pleasure to be in this forum..

    thanks tom . i understand entirely what you are thinking ,this is due to our 21st century media that shows you only what they want you to see .its a little bit off topic but let clear out some things about lebanon :its a small country(10000 sq.km)with 4 million inhabitant but that is very special by all means :its one the few remaining fiscal paradise in the world ,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...
    the capital beirut is brand new ,since it was demolished during the lebanese war it has been tottally rebuilt in the mid 90's ,and since the gap between classes in the population is becoming wider (there is only rich people and very poor people ,nothing in between),all the facilites i mentionned above(pubs restaurants etc...)are made with multi millions investment and you often see them in the american and european decoration magazines.oopps i forgot the beaches!!!!its reaaaallly nice, vodka starts to flow from noon till midnight everyday all summer long ,in a crazy atmosphere.
    since i own a plastics factory ,a lot of travelers from europe come to my place for business , and believe me i cant remember one that did not came back after he discovered beirut for the first time .anyway if rc dont mind,coz its a little bit off topic, i will post you some pictures of beirut in the next few days .and to answer your question about sales of porsche over here ,there is a 8 month waiting list on cayenne s(100000$ and turbo160000$, 1 year for cayenne v6(75000$) , 8 month for 997c2(110000$)and 8 months for c2s (1250000$) and you commonly see a mb slr ,gallardo,murcielago,enzo,modena,porsche959,gt1,gt2,gt3... maybe marcus can tell us more from a foreign point of view?

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

    ooops i forgot the best part , there is no speed limit,you can drive as fast as you want ,and believe it or not there is very few significant accidents ,as for the roads we have very nice mountain roads,rally style,but few autobahn ,the longest one is 150km.and if anyone of you guys willing to come here ,just send me a pm ,i will make your stay a hell of a stay..

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

    Very Nice dhayek, Congrats

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

    Thank you very much dimitri. It sounds like a paradise. I had heard about the night life of old, a few decades ago. I will look forward to your pictures.
    Tom

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

    Congratulations Dhayek!!!

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

    can't wait for the pictures! maybe you can start a new thread for the pictures?

    thanks for all the info. indeed, i was not aware of all the facts you mentioned. the media here in the US is really far from democratic. ist more like a brain-washing system, rather than informative.

    good luck to you and your car!

    good luck

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

    Good choice you lucky man

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

    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.
