    Taking Delivery Today

    I know this is last minute but I thought it was worth a shot. I'm taking delivery of my 997TT today and wanted some last minute advice for picking up the car. Obviously, I can just go in there and pick it up but thought you all might have some twists and suggestions for things I should ask for. I've already got the clear side markers and the silverstone bulbs in the rear. What else have you asked for at delivery?

    Re: Taking Delivery Today

    My salesman forced key fobs, hats, shirts, and scale cars on me at delivery. I, of course, had paid tremendously for these trinkets in the car note!

    Re: Taking Delivery Today

    thanks for the quick reply, and I meant silvervision bulbs in the rear.

    if it hasnt been done schedule 3m clear bra great when you out having fun crushing bugs and stiring up the road ditrius...congrats

    Re: Taking Delivery Today

    2 free quarts of oil.

    An important one for me was that they don't touch the car, it went straight to my detailers for prep & body armour. The prep guys that dealers use are the absolute bottom of the barrel, worst thing for your paint job. Also told the dealer to please not drill holes in my front bumper.

    Oh and be sure to give the car a good look over inside and out preferably outside during the day before taking off. This seems like Common sense but often we get so excited and forget.


    Re: Taking Delivery Today

    Have look at this thread I posted which has pretty much everything covered...

    Re: Taking Delivery Today

    Awesome checklist, thanks for the quick turnaround.

    Re: Taking Delivery Today

    I had a cracked headlight and saw one or two more at the dealer with the same issue. Don't pick up the car yourself; if it wasn't for my friend going to the dealer with me I would have overlooked a small crack on the lens. This was my experience. I'm sure 99% of people have not had this problem, but it's worth a check.

    Re: Taking Delivery Today

    Congrats on the new ride. By now you probably have it in your possession. I agree with the clear bra recommendation. You might consider some of the alternate break-in methods mentioned here and on other boards. Enjoy it in good health.
