    Remember, grinning at strangers makes them very uneasy...

    Re: Its here!!!!!!!

    Congratulations my friend You'll have a huge grin on your face driving it home from the dealership. Have you considered having them install the 3M stoneguard? I have it on mine and am very happy with it - it will keep the front looking new and minimize chips, etc. When are you picking it up? Take some pics Atlas is a sharp colour!

    Thank you Louis. I just came back from looking it over...and starting it up. I'm going to pick it up on Monday. I have been comtemplating a clearbra so I'll check into that tomorrow. I'll that's left is to write the check. I'll post pics as soon as I can. I don't have a digital camera so I'll have to go borrow a friends. I'll use that as an excuse for a drive as I do know where I want to take the pics.

    PS Oh and I got Michelins but I didn't get the Louis special custom Boxster option. Hopefully I can get that retrofitted.

    Re: Its here!!!!!!!

    Well...no pics or car yet. The best laid plans. I had to delay picking up the car 1 day. I awoke yesterday with quite the migraine and was laid up in bed all day. I'm going over to pick up the car as soon as I get off work.

    Hehehe...man, are you sure you have the stomach to pick up that car?
    I mean, you've already giveen yourself migraine from pure excitement!

    REMEMBER TO DOCUMENT EVERYTHING!!!!!!!!!!!

    Re: Its here!!!!!!!

    Well exactly 5 months to the day after I ordered, I have my 987S. Unfortunately its arrival corresponds with the first rains of the season. They had stopped for the ride home, but we are supposed to get more tomorrow. The weekend is supposed to be clear though. That will be my first real opportunity to play I think.
    I arrived at the dealer shortly after getting off work. By the time I finished signing all the papers and getting a overview of how to operate some of the features it was well into the dinner hour. So I can only report on the 5 mile trip home from the dealer. Traffic was bumper to bumper so I am limited to saying I was truly impressed by the bi-xenon lights. This is my first European car and it has a totally different feel than any other car I've owned, very solid. I feel like I'm back in school with lots of homework. I've never seen so many manuals. The PCM guide alone is going to take a lot of work. I promise a more comprehensive review and the appropriate pics in the coming days. Thanks again to all to have answered questions, reassured me, and tolerated me being a challenge during the past 5 months.
    Let the break-in begin. By my calculations it should be nice and broken in just in time for the first DE events in the spring.

    PS Clear side markers installed at dealer while signing the papers.
