    My Arctic Silver C2S has arrived (pics)

    Finally, after a very long wait, I got my first Porsche at the age of 34. I collected it less than 24 hours ago, and I swear I felt as though I was 16 years old driving a car for the very first time. Emotionally, it was overwhelming.

    I've driven Mercs and BMWs, but this Porsche is way too different. I can't describe the feeling I had. More like sheer happiness and satisfaction.

    Then I decided by pass by my brother-in-law, who now drives an SL55 AMG (before that he had a Ferrari 456). I invited him to try it, and he immediately tested the power. All I can say that he was shocked. He says that not only the power is awsome, but the car is extremely light and responsive. He thinks that a 997 can easily be his daily driver.
    Now he's thinking of replacing the SL55 for a 997.

    The car is truly fantastic. I only regret that I haven't bought a Porsche when I was younger.

    Thanks to all of you in Rennteam who helped me spec the car. I have a slight regret that I didn't get the manual and PSE. I guess I should have listned!

    Spec: 2006 (December 05 build) 997 C2S, Arctic Silver, Full Black Leather, Tip S, Sport Chrono, TPMS...see pics below...

    I almost got a green 997 before joining Rennteam. Rennteam rules

    Fantastic,compliments!!!
    My 997 s too is december 05'build!!

    Re: My Arctic Silver C2S has arrived (pics)

    My 1st Porsche was a last build 993S in Silver with Black Trim and your car reminds me so much of it, truly beautiful.

    Congratulations.

    Re: My Arctic Silver C2S has arrived (pics)

    Congrats

    Re: My Arctic Silver C2S has arrived (pics)

    congrats!!! btw how do u like the tip? Is it fast?

    Re: My Arctic Silver C2S has arrived (pics)

    The tip is indeed fast if you have sport chrono. The car just changes completely and becomes very different, possibly agressive.

    My reference is my friend's manual 996 TT. When the 996 TT accelerates, I get discomfort in my neck because of that sheer power. When comparing against my brand-new C2S tip, my neck discomfort is surprisingly similar, albeit less.

    I was expecting the tip to be powerful, but not THAT powerful. I guess it always knows the best gear to select. Also, it may be possible that the torque converter isn't zapping too much power after all.

    In short, the tip is boring and somewhat slow unless you activiate 'sport' on a chrono-equipped car.

    Mabrook Oxonian,

    My test drive 997 c2s was tip and I did notice as well that the car performs rather great when combined with the sports chrono sport button. Enjoy your new baby

    Re: My Arctic Silver C2S has arrived (pics)

    A very big congratulations to you!You regret not having bought your first p before your 34 birthday... My goal was 35 for my first used p (965t) and i had to wait till last year to buy my first new p, so... I find you're a very lucky guy...
    And btw, even if you're 45 like me, the thrill of buying and collecting your brandnew p is still the same...

    Re: My Arctic Silver C2S has arrived (pics)

    Congrats - great car and know the feeling - am 34 also and felt like christmas again when I collected my car last year.
    Enjoy

    Nice car, but why didn't your daler remove the blue film from the accelerator during delivery prep?

    Oxonian,

    Beautiful! My favorite color and wheels!
    You're a very lucky man indeed! Enjoy!

    Cheers!

    Re: My Arctic Silver C2S has arrived (pics)

    Nice looking car.

    Re: My Arctic Silver C2S has arrived (pics)

    V.Nice one! mabtouk! enjoy it..!

    Re: My Arctic Silver C2S has arrived (pics)

    Oxonian, have you "run" the car in yet? Also I assume after more than 9-10,000kms the engine will "free-up" and performance improve there-after. I also got my first P at 34 years - a Box, but now I'm waiting for big-brother the 911, to be built next month. Good driving!

    Re: My Arctic Silver C2S has arrived (pics)

    Congratulations - beautiful car. Hope you enjoy driving it!

    Re: My Arctic Silver C2S has arrived (pics)

    he looks very great. and the weather is also nice.
    i wish you a lot of fun, with your new "friend".
