    Car to arrive January 10th

    Hi Guys,

    Got a call from my dealer today, the car is at the port in west coast Saudi Arabia - still in the ship - should be here in two weeks, customs and PDI are done in the west cost and will be shipped to the east coast as soon as they are done. He estimates January 10th for arrival which is 2 days before a public holiday which lasts for 10 days. I hope it arrives before so I can get the registration done prior or I'll have to wait till late Jan before I can register it... Fingers crossed - Waiting challenge increased to maximum!!

    Re: Car to arrive January 10th

    Looking forward to seeing some pics, especially your interior, is it still terracotta? Also I presume your not going to wait for PSE.
    IMO you've made the right choice to get on and enjoy the car.
    I'm still counting the weeks and have some time to go. Keep us posted

    Re: Car to arrive January 10th

    Yes, its teracotta - didn't change any option on the car except for the fact that it will be without PSE. Will post pics for sure when I get it...

    muhri, do you live in dubai?

    if you do, what do you thing about the seal grey/cocoa 997S Sport Suspention manual in the Naboda Showroom?
    I'm thinking about getting it, but it doesn't come with Sport Chrono Package, will I really need that option?
    because the Maneger there is telling me it's useless to get Chrono package with manual+sport suspention.

    996AD, No I live in Saudi but that's a killer combo - However, that manager is giving you BS. SCP is a must regardless whether you have -20mm suspension or not! Go ahead and order unless you can not wait.

    997 Turbo

    Any Info or pic about 997 Turbo look

    Re: Car to arrive January 10th

    Hi All,

    wow i saw a beutiful 997 S just arrive before 2 days ago Seal grey + Terracotta / Silver + Terracotta in Ali & Sons Abu Dhabi Delear with a lot of options specially the Seal grey for more info contact there Mr Zaher.

    Re: Car to arrive January 10th

    Jolian, I'm afraid no pics besides those spied ones.. search the board..

    Re: Car to arrive January 10th

    muhri, what i know about SCP is that it improves the suspention and tiptronic to a sportier moode. well, what if the car has manual + sport suspention (not adjustable) what will i need the SCP for???

    Re: Car to arrive January 10th

    Jolian, Ali & Sons have Seal grey/Terracotta, another seal grey/Terracotta (manual) Silver/Terracotta, White/Terracotta and ‎black/Terracotta tell me why are they so crazy about this interior color?‎
    man it's orange not like the boxter red that I have on my C2! Maybe it looks exotic from ‎outside, but inside it's so feminine.

    Throttle mapping and response is amazing in Sports mode.

    Yeah, that's crazy for one dealership to order this many color combos with this interior color. However, I'm a guy and no chick and I ordered Basalt Black with Terrecotta. It is the closest thing to Boxter Red and there was no other reddish choice.
