    Just a few smileys to explain how i am feeling right now !!

    Porsche travel partner contacted me to arrange my travel plans for my factory collection next Friday.

    I fly out from Heathrow next Thursday afternoon to collect my car at 08:30 Friday morning. I have been told i must be at the factory by 07:30 in the morning ! Anyone know which area of the factory you need to report to ?

    I plan on taking a nice drive back through Reims and staying overnight at this hotel  http://www.etoges.com/ on the Friday night after the collection. I also plan to visit the old Reims racing circuit to get some pictures.

    The spec of my car is as follows:-

    Carrara White Colour  B4

    Carrara White Headlight Washers CGA

    PCCB Brakes 450

    Dynamic Engine Mounts 140

    Windscreen with grey top tint 567

    Clubsport Package OO3

    Carrara White B Pillar XDR

    Carrara White rear section of centre console  XME

    Yellow seat Belts XSY

    Alcantara Sunvisors CYW

    Lift System Front Axle 474

    PCM P23

    Sound Package 490

    Congratualtions, it will be fantastic Is a 3 year warranty an option?


    Re: GT3 Factory collection next Friday !!!

    It is an option now on the 2011 MY cars.

    Still have to pay over £900 for it Smiley

    that should be a blast, great car.

    But I want a lot of pics of that Hotel. WOW, looks nice (at least on the outside)

     

     

     

     

    edit: we need a pic of the GT3 on that little bridge, sideways with the hotel in the background.


    Re: GT3 Factory collection next Friday !!!

    +1 yeah, that hotel looks stylish

    Re: GT3 Factory collection next Friday !!!

    The hotel does look good and got a good rating on trip advisor. I was more interested in getting a hotel with secure parking for my new toy.. I think a moat around the car will protect it !!!!

    The room cost about €160 and i think evening diner is from about €35 a head...

     

     


    Re: GT3 Factory collection next Friday !!!

    Hate to burst your bubble, but it seems like the carpark is outside the moat.
    They probably use the moat to keep you in the hotel whilst they are having fun with the new toy!

    Very jealous. I pick mine (TTS) up from the factory end of July and simply can't wait.
    Be sure to let us know how you get on.

    Anyone know how long you have on the temporary plates and insurance? After having spent this much on a car I'm having to pacify my other half by spending a few days in a spa on route back to the UK. The things we do for an easy life.Smiley

    I think it is nine days on the factory plates, then two business days once back in the UK to report to the OPC for the PDI


    Re: GT3 Factory collection next Friday !!!

    Plenty of time to do some sightseeing then! The only bits of Germany I have seen are the autobahns as I make my way down to European ski resorts Smiley

    Thanks for the info.
