    First 100 miles... What a car!

    In for the night and I'm more interested in tomorrow's weather forecast than ever.

    I've been sitting here for a few minutes and can't compose any thoughts except for wow.
    Oh well, maybe a review later... here are some pics.

    Re: First 100 miles... What a car!

    Looks like a great car - congrats. Nice color comb also. Hope youve been able to avoid all the rain weve had in NC for the past few days, altho the wet roads do make it a little entertaining!

    Re: First 100 miles... What a car!

    Thanks. Was in the rain in Charlotte Mon. & Tues. Dealer called while there... couldn't wait to get back! Only overcast here.

    Re: First 100 miles... What a car!

    Wow! Very nice.....congratulations and more pics please. What did you drive before?

    Re: First 100 miles... What a car!

    Beautiful. Just beautiful. And thanks for posting the pics. They are the thin thread that keeps me from falling off the edge completely while I endure this agonizing wait for my car to arrive.

    Congrats and enjoy the ride!

    Re: First 100 miles... What a car!

    Nice job with the clear repeaters also, looks very slick. If your ever out near Raleigh....

    Re: First 100 miles... What a car!

    congrats....simply gorgeous....

    Re: First 100 miles... What a car!

    Awesome car, congrats!

    Re: First 100 miles... What a car!

    Very nice,

    Everytime I see pics of that 997 sand beige interior, I keep reminding myself to order it in my next P.

    Re: First 100 miles... What a car!

    Beautiful color combo!!! Enjoy it!

    Re: First 100 miles... What a car!

    Beautiful, especially the interior!
    Now go out and drive.

    Re: First 100 miles... What a car!

    yeap same colours, different wheels



    Re: First 100 miles... What a car!

    Looks good! After I got my Porsche, I started watching the Weather Channel like it was the World Series...

    Re: First 100 miles... What a car!

    And different steering wheel, plus I'm on the otherside

    Re: First 100 miles... What a car!

    Thank you all so much for the comments and especially for all the help in deciding what to order. Past three months were tough.

    throt: I also had a deposit on a BMW650 convertible and before the Top Gear review, I considered the M5. Up until about two weeks ago, I still was only 95% sure about the Porsche. Believe it or don't, the wife and the BMW salesperson both said that without question, I should get the Porsche. Very glad I stuck with it. Your time will come.

    FSU: Sold BMW540i 2 months ago, have new F150 4X4 pick-up, wife has Yukon Denali. Other previous cars include: 68 SS Camaro, 71 Firebird, 74 Camaro, 79 280ZX, 735i, 325i, some trucks.

    Whirlinturbin: Plain Black. Basalt is nice too.

    MikeS: Your pictures are what I fell in love with. Thank you. Couldn't imagine any other combo on a cab. Would have liked the multi function steering wheel but it actually interfered with shifting. (6'-7") And I like the black mats.

    Best option so far: (Aside from power seats which were a must)

    1) PSE
    2) NAVI
    3) Full Leather
    4) Bose (once it finally drive with the top up, this will surely move up to #2)

    Haven't fully figured out the SIM Card thing. I was worried about not getting Sport Chrono but now I'm sure I'll never miss it. Too many other sensations to deal with. Oh... I really like the wheels.

    This car is so easy to drive, its ridiculous. Maybe changing sport chrono mode throws off clutch/gas synch for some from previous posts.

    STRADALE: Ordered the complete wash kit from Griot's. Thanks.

    Gary
