    So that's about 12-13% tax and duties and the car will be 'taxed' in Europe and 'legal' to stay there Smiley

    You will most probably need an address, it is a requirement in most european countries. Don't know if Swiss follow the same but I guess so.Smiley

    I am sure there is a way , a lawyer could probably arrange that

    Ha,

    Are you going to run the car hard? If so, Sun suggests you keep your factory Alus on - much better if you hit potholes at speed!  Save the Mags in the garage!Smiley

    The Xpel and ceramic is nice - the bugs just rinse off!

    Will see how it will look with the mags.. I kinda like the gt3 wheels more.

    Very likely. A friend knows more about this, another friend from HK has his cars here in Germany. I'll ask, maybe he has a hint or two.

    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 GT2 RS (2017)

    Yes, as far as I know, you need to have an address. A company with a mailbox could potentially be a solution?


    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 GT2 RS (2017)

    He needs a company or a private person he "lives at" but this is going to be difficult to justify.

    Best thing would be a small company, car on company and so on. Some sort of "shell company" but I don't know the legal aspects of such a company in Europe. For tax reasons, I think Germany is still the best, also because the car will be very likely stored in Germany(?) but I may be wrong.

    My car finally made it back home yesterday. Exactly 8 weeks after dropping it off. I was quoted 4-8 weeks mail

    The yahoos only put 4.4km on the clock, even fewer than my Exclusive, they did 6km last time. And it was 21km on the 911R before that.

    As for the g-meter, the 911R was thrashed around before, and the Exclusive, while driven a bit more normally, did experienced at leas one launch control start. This time the GT2RS was driven in a more normal manor. 

    Dealer doing PDI today, gonna pick it up tomorrow and head to my track this weekend, Jacques Villeneuve was going to  set a lap record with a friend's Senna, I am wondering if the Widowmaker can best that time and steal the record smiley

    Whoah, congrats with having your new baby home Nick!

    As for the thrashing of your cars  by the delivery drivers... how do you deal with that as a customer? It would really piss me off. Also, if they did REALLY bad, I think I would have it registered with my dealer that the car was abused before you took delivery. If only just to have prove in case they try to make you pay for oil  leaking engines in a later stage...

    It won't be the deliver drivers. 

    Cars dropped off at Simovic, they do so much drops offs it's nothing new to them so it won't bye them. The next party will be Porsche's contracted transport crew for loading, same deal.

    On this side of the pool, after clearing customs, it is loaded onto covered transport for the transcontinental trip and drop off right at the dealership, so it won't be them either.

    What's left is the customs agent at the port. They are known to do joy rides inside the yard. 

    They are a bunch that you don't wan to piss off, they have the power to stripe a car down to nuts and bolts saying they are trying to find contrabands.Smiley

    Yeah I am hoping it can.

    Senna is on Trofeo R though, and I didn't have time to order some Cup Rs.

    But I already asked the foreman to turn down the wing and take out the flaps in front for max downforce mode Smiley

    Stupid question (now please do not misunderstand me): Are you worried about your safety when driving such a car in SA? We hear so many stories here about car napping and stuff like that. Exaggerated? Thanks.
