    My Wait is over, Picked up car today

    Well today was the day. Just picked it up a couple of hours ago. I really was tired of reading the posts and magazine articles. I wanted to know how good it really is. It is good!!! More posts later tomorrow. I know i will get mixed opinions about the wood but I like it. One of the pictures has the bonnet slightly open. Missed that when I took the picture

    Re: My Wait is over, Picked up car today

    Very very nice, congratulations on the new car. Boy, it seems that everyone so far is getting black!

    Re: My Wait is over, Picked up car today

    Thanks Apex. Yes I need lots of time behind the wheel before i can give an accurate assesment.

    Re: My Wait is over, Picked up car today

    Actually this one is Atlas, Looks differnt colors depending on time of the day, bright sunlight vs clouds.

    Re: My Wait is over, Picked up car today

    Congratulations on such a beautiful car. Atlas + tan is great!

    BTW I think the wood accents work very nicely in a tan interior. Good picks.

    Re: My Wait is over, Picked up car today

    I let wifey pick the interior. I think she made a good choice. Really looks good with the Atlas

    Re: My Wait is over, Picked up car today

    Beautiful Rich Time to add the TT to your sig...

    Are you taking it into Benchmark for anything?

    Re: My Wait is over, Picked up car today

    Yes the boys at Benchmark will do front parking sensors, Rosen Blue tooth and Passport with Laser Defusers. Still thinking through the Audio Stuff. Might do Cayenne Sat or Denison IPOD connect

    Re: My Wait is over, Picked up car today

    Front parking sensors? Whats the point except for adding weight complexity and ugly bumps?

    Re: My Wait is over, Picked up car today

    Wife must be driving the car as well.

    Ditto

    Re: My Wait is over, Picked up car today

    congrats.. i like the wood i think it gives an added dimension to the interior beyond cf or the aluminium look, have fun, yeah it's way fun.

    Re: My Wait is over, Picked up car today

    I don't know why people don't like the wood. I think it looks great. Natural Brown and Sycamore is the best looking interior combo IMO.

    I personally like the beige with sycamore. Or blue with light wood (not sure what it's called). I think all the aversion towards wood is a product of the "boy-racer" mentality. "The car doesn't look sporty enough with wood", they say. That's a load of bull. It performs the same, regardless of whether it has wood, CF or aluminum inserts.

    Re: My Wait is over, Picked up car today

    Wood does not suit the character of the car IMHO. I can't understand why someone would buy the wood (or aluminum/CF) steering wheel, it seems it would become very slippery in hard driving situations.

    For this reaqson my car interior is all leather. HOWEVER, IMO a person that is going to drive their car as an everyday car has every good reason to go with the type of interior (wood for some) that is the best combination of use and looks, an interior that gets their blood flowing just to look at. If wood does that for another person, I say

    Re: My Wait is over, Picked up car today

    You order the sport steering wheel, I know I would. However, wood IS sporty, as it was omnipresent in sports cars of yesterday. Call it a "classic" touch, or a "sophisticated one", in defiance to the trend of sticking carbon fiber everywhere on the car, except for where it would really help reduce weight .

    Re: My Wait is over, Picked up car today

    Rich, is that the Makassar option #801 & 451 ??

    Re: My Wait is over, Picked up car today

    Love the atlas bro...

    Congratulations and drive it in good health!

    Re: My Wait is over, Picked up car today

    It is a great color combination and the interior looks terrific! It has an elegance and richness of an expensive car. Good choice.

    Re: My Wait is over, Picked up car today

    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!
