    Re: Factory Collection Adventure

    Many thanks and much appreciated - a factory collection makes the car so much more personal and special

    Re: Factory Collection Adventure

    Many thanks for taking the time to document your trip to Germany! I thoroughly enjoyed reading this thread and of course it helps me relive my own experiences over there myself too. Hope you enjoy your Turbo for many years yet to come.

    Re: Factory Collection Adventure

    Congrats - stunning interior - absolutely spot on loving it...!

    Beauty, what color combo is that?



    Thank you and the Interior is Bi-Colour Black / Terracotta with deviated black carpets and Basalt Black Exterior.

    The physical car really hangs together well, I am delighted to say

    Re: Factory Collection Adventure

    It was a truly wonderful trip made even more special by the great friends who shared the experience.

    This is my first black car and whilst I can see the maintenance will be a full time job, the end product is certainly well worth the effort

    Re: Factory Collection Adventure

    My pleasure...

    Re: Factory Collection Adventure

    I certainly will and keep on taking the long scenice route everywhere I go

    Fabulous photo diary. Great pics.
    Seeing the German number plates got me wondering.Do you have to re-register your car in the UK? or do Porsche do it for you?



    Thank you and it has been fun to do with the able help of my old school friend Dreamcar

    You are issued with Zol plates from the factory and you have to re-register on your return to the UK which the Porsche Dealership will carry out for you.

    The Factory Collection is well worth the extra cost

    Re: Factory Collection Adventure

    Great write up..
    Remeber to keep your transit plates, great reminders of the trip when you see them up on the wall.

    I also did the Mercedes museum the day prior to my collection and was blown away by the layout, building and content..

    Re: Factory Collection Adventure

    What a great thread. Thanks for taking the time to post all the pics. Looks like you have gone large on the options - all the leather details - fantastic!! Enjoy in good health!

    Re: Factory Collection Adventure

    Excellent write up and pictures!

    Re: Factory Collection Adventure

    Told already it's such a shame you passed Brugge and didn't visit us (only 20' away!)
    Never ever pass through Belgium without having delicious meal in one of our belgian restaurants!
    And when you want to have your hair done... pass here, i'll give you an aerodynamic porsche-cut!!

    Re: Factory Collection Adventure

    Outstanding post. I enjoyed your adventure as though I was there. I am loving my '09 TT as well. Enjoy in great health.

    My fault, sadly, as I had to be at work in Portsmouth 07:00hrs the next morning and didn't want to be late for the Channel Tunnel crossing .

    You wouldn't do much for either of our hair, sadly I'm just about threadbare and kinrara isn't far behind.

    Congratulations on your beautiful new 997TT It's simply stunning - you've really indulged yourself in the options list and it really makes a difference. Great taste

    Your trip looks like it was truly unforgettable Just like my own Factory Collection experience nearly 2 years ago. Brings back tons of fond memories Here's a thread of my own trip (which I hope you'll enjoy too):

    http://www.rennteam.com/showflat.php?Cat...&PHPSESSID=

    Thank you for taking so much time and effort to capture photographically every aspect of your wonderful journey for your own memories and also to share with all of us It's really appreciated. Believe me, I know just how much time and effort it takes to post photo diaries like this I've become quite 'notorious' for them

    Guess what? The grey haired gentleman who did your handover in the New Car Collection Hall was the same guy who did mine!! What a coincidence! Do you happen to know his name?

    I also loved the photos you posted of the Mercedes Benz Museum - really something special. I hope the new Porsche Museum is as good when it opens soon.

    I'm sure you also enjoyed the really delicious lunch in the restaurant in PAG Zuffenhausen.

    Looks like the weather was also great for your trip. Plus you had the added benefit of dreamcar's good company for the duration of the trip - since he's already done it before, it must have helped a lot so that you wouldn't miss a thing.

    Plus, of course, Porsche-Jeck and his wife are charming and welcoming hosts so I'm sure you all had a great time together. Meeting Paralizer must have been a nice bonus too

    Your trip to the Nurburgring was really the icing on the cake Something tells me it won't be your last trip there

    All that it remains for me to say is, once again, many congratulations on your amazing new car and your outstanding collection journey. I think it says it all when I say that "you really did it properly"

    Cheers,
    Easy



    Hi Easy, many thanks for your thoughtful post and I really enjoyed the thread link to your own equally enjoyable and highly informative cherished factory collection experience

    Do you think with our obvious enthusiasm we should be retained by Porsche

    This is also my first Porsche and coupled with my introduction to the Nurburgring courtesy of Porsche-Jeck, in the convivial company of Dreamcar and Paralizer, it appears I am hooked you are 100% correct in your assumption that I will unquestionably shortly return !

    Sadly Dreamcar and I cannot remember the name of the gentleman who was exceptionally professional in dealing with the handover in the Collection Hall too many thoughts at the time I guess and what a small world it is

    The Mercedes Benz Museum was captivating and it was interesting to see the stage of construction the new Porsche Museum was at during the time of your own trip in November 2006. It certainly looks well on track to rival Mercedes and raise the ball game level another notch ; yet another good reason to return amongst many others

    Both Dreamcar and I thoroughly enjoyed our luncheon at PAG Zuffenhausen and apparently all food on "Collection Day" is calorie free

    Dreamcar's prior experience of his own factory collection made the event even more special and I felt with his various in depth passionate pre-factory tour briefings I was attending the Porsche facility for a second time

    I was also surprised just how much luggage space was available and would like to take this opportunity of complimenting you on the substantial thought you clearly gave to preparing your own 997S detailed specification. GT Silver and Cocoa is a superb complimentary combination and I thought Porsche-Jeck's Seal Grey with Cocoa was also very striking

    It is always a delight to see attention to detail and I can genuinely say that with Dreamcar's assistance, I do not believe the 997TT is missing anything I did not wish to include

    Good also to see a rail of terracotta hides in your factory pictures being pulled along by two technicians. Paralizer's favourite colour \

    Thanks again to Mr and Mrs Porsche-Jeck as that underground car park sure looks familiar

    Sorry you are unable to attend this weekend's Sunday meet and thanks for reminding us all the clocks go back 1 hour which could avert a potential problem

    Meantime, I hope to meet you at some point in the future, many thanks once again for all your kind comments and see you on Renteam ......

    That was fantastic! Thanks a lot for the effort in posting these great shots. It is like being there without the hassle.

    I think the highlight of the thread is the Mercedes museum, both the building design and the collection.

    Speaking of pic threads Easy, where is CA?



    Kinrara,



    Many thanks for your comments and I believe the new Porsche Museum will be even better "fingers crossed"- a must visit

    Re: Factory Collection Adventure

    A bit off topic, but last Sunday with kinrara....

    Re: Factory Collection Adventure

    ...and three years ago, same car park, with my previous silver Boxster S,and Rennteamers wtsnet, RichC and ente.

    Hi Kinrara Seems you try to "beat" Easy-Rider with this giant picture thread

    Thanks for the big effort in sorting and posting all the great pics Once the new P-museum will be opened I'll combine a tour with a visit of the MB museum - looks fantastic.
    Your TT looks simply stunning in the flesh - all the perfect little details make it really special
    Special car for a special guy
    Enjoy the beast



    Porche-Jeck, I think we should nominate Easy-Rider for a BAFTA award for his first class detailed threads awesome hard work in the preparation, tremendously engaging and fantastically informative

    Thanks for all the pics together with your kind remarks and for making the weekend in the company of your wife, Dreamcar and Paralizer such a special experience

    Dreamcar and I are meeting some Renteamers tomorrow (997 Board) for a drive in the West Sussex Downs and lunch at Goodwood Road Racing Club.

    Best wishes and I am thoroughly enjoying the TT

    Pretty clearly terracotta inside (bi-colour) but exterior not that clear in the few pics that actually include the turbo... my guess is Atlas Gray?



    Thanks for your interest and exterior is Basalt Black
