    Rich,

    Congratulations on taking delivery of your 997TT. You must have gotten her from Barrier Motors because I recall seeing on the order list that an Atlas Grey 997TT was coming in. I'm about 2 places down the list from you for an October build 997TT in Cobalt blue. I'm currently in Stuttgart, Germany right across the street from Porsche and I can tell you and everybody else that there are a whole bunch of Turbos parked outside ready for shipment! I'm going to try and get a tour of the factory in addition to the Zentrum if I can. I saw a nice white 997TT parked outside with everything painted all white including the lower spoilers all the way around. Looked really sharp! I'll try not to disappoint with the pictures that I've taken.

    Again, congrats, Rich! I like the combination you've come up with!



    VERY cool, can't wait to see you Stuttgart pictures. Wow great weather this weekend for driving and an incredible car. Scary Fast is what I would call it. I thought my 997S was fast. There is no comparison. Be careful. I need to drive conservatively until I get to know the car better.

    Re: My Wait is over, Picked up car today

    Nice choices. Car looks beautiful! Inside and out. I like the wood for looks. BTY would like to hear more about the iPod connect. Front parking sensors? Not a bad idea. I hit more parking lot concrete logs than I would ever back into walls, so it makes more sense to me to have the sensors up front. Enjoy your car.

    Re: My Wait is over, Picked up car today

    Your interior looks great. Congrats on going with wood, too. I did the same (not too much!) and have very pleased with it. I'm no boy racer so carbon fiber (aka plastic) doesn't work for me.

    Natural brown and Makassar for me. 451, 801.

    Carbon may be plastic, but it looks pretty good to me ...

    I'm a leather guy myself but... CF is not plastic - it is fiber glass and resins - no stinkin plastic there

    Re: My Wait is over, Picked up car today

    I'm not a wood fan either, but understand the arguments.Atlas tan and grey is gorgeous! Have fun!

    Re: My Wait is over, Picked up car today

    I don't wnat to be nitpicking, but isn't it so that the "wood" used actually is imitation and therefore plastic?

    No it's real. I think you're confused with a Hyundai or something.

    He is right it is real and does not have a plastic feel at all. I have a Toyota Hilander Hybrid and IT DOES HAVE PLASTIC SIMULATED WOOD. Very different deal.

    Re: My Wait is over, Picked up car today

    Beautiful interior.
    What/where is Benchmark?

    Benchmark Motoring is in Bellevue WA. They specialize in highend audio installs and interior/exterior upgrades, lazer/radar applications etc. Kind of like Unique Whips (USA tv), but much more classier and professional.

    Check out their website www.benchmarkmotoring.com

    Once there, if you click on Electronics, there will be a number of thumbnailed pictures. My dual amp installation in my trunk is in the top right corner. Also in the bottom middle of the Integration page
