    Ta Da....It's Here!!!!!

    I finally picked up my dream car, after waiting for about twenty years....I thought that I was done waiting, but now I have to survive the break-in period. I'll definitely need to plan some road trips. Even at 20 or 30 miles a day, I can't wait for the next several months to crawl by......

    The car is simply amazing.....and I haven't used the sport button, or have barley exceeded 4200 rpm. The acceleration from 70 to 100 flashes by almost effortlessly...even without downshifting.

    I love the interior, the two-tone combo looks great. I'm probably going to upgrade to the thicker multi-function steering wheel (some how) and will be investing in the fabspeed dual tips.

    Simply a fantastic piece of engineering.....

    MPH versus KPH

    Re: Ta Da....It's Here!!!!!

    I see that you have the side rocker panel painted, have you thought about getting the front and rear done to match? You probably would want clear bra on the lip as well but I looks awesome in my opinion.

    Re: Ta Da....It's Here!!!!!

    Gorgeous car. Congrats. Great color combo for Fla too !!

    Re: Ta Da....It's Here!!!!!

    Congrats!

    Beautiful car, excellent color combo. I especially like the white turbo badge. Enjoy it in good health.

    Re: Ta Da....It's Here!!!!!

    Great car and interior. I believe once you have the MF steerng wheel it is fairly easy to change to a Techart MF wheel. Love the two tone.
    Cheers.

    Re: Ta Da....It's Here!!!!!

    Congradulations FSU. Nice, very nice. Enjoy. I've got 1300 now and working towards 2000. Most of my miles are short (<5) miles runs to and from work.

    Congrats, beautiful colour combination. Break in is tough, I'm still working on my first 1000km. Carefull with that driveway entrance, the front is really low.

    Re: Ta Da....It's Here!!!!!

    Re: Ta Da....It's Here!!!!!

    Congratulations, looks great!

    Re: Ta Da....It's Here!!!!!

    Congrats! Your car look real good. I'm sure you'll love it... looking foward to read later on your first impressions.

    Re: Ta Da....It's Here!!!!!

    Thanks for the comments, I've naturally been out driving....I now take about an hour to get to the office, instead of the usual 15 minutes. I'm going to have a hard time not letting this car become my daily driver.....of course, not that it would be a bad thing. Just hard to show up at a clients office and ask for money in a shiny new sportscar. Actually, I was suprised by how many...."What kind of car is that?" comments I heard today.....so maybe the average John Q. Public does care.

    Not sure if I should or should not paint the front and rear lower lip spoilers white to match the sides. Any comments?

    Re: Ta Da....It's Here!!!!!

    Congrats What a beauty

    Re: Ta Da....It's Here!!!!!

    That is a great color combo, enjoy !

    That should not be a problem in the US. It is not my business what my employees/co-workers/consultants drive - it's strictly their business.

    I would not, as they will always suffer from road-rash and it will be more visible if painted, especially white.

    Re: Ta Da....It's Here!!!!!

    Beautful car, cong.
    You will love the thinker steering wheel, is a lot better than the original.

    Re: Ta Da....It's Here!!!!!

    Paint the rear and front lips. Assuming you have a low entry drive, you should be fine.

    Will take a day or two in the shop to do it right.
