    Took delivery of my 2006 997S!

    Awesome!, Just came back from taking delivery of my black/black 997C2S. What a great car! This is my 3rd 911 and IMO it is the best by far! I'll try to post some pics tonight.
    A couple of points about the 2006 which might interst some of you:
    - Passanger seat now has smart airbags that deactivate when it senses that a small person or child is occupying that seat so no more airbag deactivation kit for around $1K!!!!!!

    - The sunroof has a new style wind deflector with triangular wholes in it to reduce wind buffeting.

    - The new S comes standard with 385HP instead of 355HP !!!

    .... Just Kidding! power is the same but I figured I get a rise out of someone for at least 3 seconds

    Anyway thanks to Revvv for being a great P-car sales person! and thanks to everyone for all of the knowledge!

    I nearly fell off my chair! Good work!

    Good news your 2006S is here: have a blast! Your 997S enjoyment also makes me happy because it means mine is actually, really, not-in-the-imagination, going to appear any day now!!


    Re: Took delivery of my 2006 997S!

    Congratulations! Now, after you've driven it back to back with the Elise, you've got to do a comparison. What are your instincts now, to sell the Elise or no?

    Re: Took delivery of my 2006 997S!

    Fred,
    You got me too!

    Thanks for the 4-1-1, and congratulations!
    Of course, pictures please!

    Re: Took delivery of my 2006 997S!

    Just picked myself off the floor....

    Cruel!

    Re: Took delivery of my 2006 997S!

    Thanks guys!

    The car is lovely. Tomorrow I'll start to drive it for real and hopefully sometime next week I can make a more objective comparison/contrast of the 997S vs Elise. Tonight I have to read all of the manuals so I can figure out how to program some radio station on the PCM .
    I uploaded some pictures to a personal gallery of the new passenger airbag warning light and I hope the link below works.

    Cheers!

    Have fun with the car. Is that the standard hand brake?

    Fred,

    You got me too! Congrates. My car was build the same day and is now on a truck from Georgia to San Francisco. Should get it next week. Mine is a Blk/Blk S and it's my third 911 as well. I already have is set up for Champion RS98 wheels, H&R springs, Rinspeed areo kit (no wing), evo air intake and KA 40 remote radar.

    Re: Took delivery of my 2006 997S!

    Fred... enjoy the smell of new car leather... fresh trunk and that growl at start up...

    the first night was ZERO sleep for me and the manual was with me wherever i went including the john...lol... just sitting in the car was great. congrats again!

    Re: Took delivery of my 2006 997S!

    enjoy that car,

    hmmm, smell good, new....:)

    Re: Took delivery of my 2006 997S!

    Does the my06 997 still have the third 12V socket in the passenger footwell??

    Cheers,
