    Re: It Took Forever but...

    First look...coming up the lift/elevator at the dealership...

    Re: It Took Forever but...

    Proud Dad!

    Re: It Took Forever but...

    First few feet of driving heaven!

    Re: It Took Forever but...

    Just love this view...

    Re: It Took Forever but...

    I have plenty more pics...just let me know when you have had enough!

    Impressions...well coming from a 996 cab the experience is just so unbelievably different. I can't get over how much they improved this car.

    It's so incredibly docile when driving around town it really and truly feels just like I am driving my BMW 528i..seriously no joke. But then...and oh my...then when you hit the gas pedal it's like nothing I have ever felt.

    I took my sister for a ride and she summed it up completely...it feels just like the sensation of a roller coaster.

    First you have calm and this feeling of forboding in the pit of your stomach...then gitty anticipation...then holy crap the world is flying past you in streams of colors while you are thrown out of the car and hang on for dear life to the spoiler flailing in the wind like a flag in a hurricane. This car will be with me forever.

    Re: It Took Forever but...

    Beauty, almost identical to mine except for the sills!!

    Re: It Took Forever but...

    Great minds think alike, pure black on black is same as mine. Enjoy and congrats.

    Re: It Took Forever but...

    Stunning! Can you explain hoe the Parrot Blue tooth works?
    I personally dont care for how they installed your k40 diffuser the way the bent your plastic grille

    I had the k40 on my gt2 and personally do not think the diffuser works at all since I got a nice Laser Ticket with it last year

    Re: It Took Forever but...

    You know I was wondering if it was supposed to be bent like that...I guess it's not! I'll bring it back to the dealer...I was pressing pretty hard to get the car in my hands so I am sure they rushed the K40 a bit...

    Where are you in NJ?

    Re: It Took Forever but...

    Congrats! My own blk on blk should arrive towards the end of April.

    Perhaps we'll get a chance to meet at one of the track events in the NY area?




    Re: It Took Forever but...

    Jake...I have not yet fully figured out all the features of the Parrot but basically it shuts off the radio, etc., when a call comes in or is made and uses the car speakers for audio...there is a small microphone mounted by the dome light. So far it's good but not as great as a fully factory integrated one like in my MB.

    Re: It Took Forever but...

    mp-I would love to go to a track event...I never did it with my other car but this one I really want to explore the potential, etc...and I feel safer with a hard top over my head!

    Alpine, you?
    Yes It def should not look like that
    Congrats on the new ride!

    Re: It Took Forever but...

    I'm in F.Lakes...just a little west of you...

    It's annoying that I have to bring it back to the dealer to fix it but I guess I'll survive a few days without my car...who am I kidding...I can't live without it!

    Re: It Took Forever but...

    wow, looks stunning!!!

    Is that flat Black or Basalt Black?

    Re: It Took Forever but...

    It's black. I personally don't like the basalt...I just love the mirror-like look of regular old black...brings me back to being a kid and staring at 911s...

    For some reason basalt always looks dirty to me.
