    Re: Pictures of 3 week old 997S-GT Silver and Sea Blue

    Nice car...I like the color combination. Nice house too...scenery is beatiful. I'd like to take a drive in those mountains...straight and flat here. Enjoy the ride!!!

    Re: Pictures of 3 week old 997S-GT Silver and Sea Blue

    Great car, enjoy.

    I thought I would just make one comment, however, on your Valentine radar detector. Valentine's advice, with which I agree, is that it should be mounted as HIGH as possible in the center of the windshield so that it has a better view forward and BACKWARD thru the rear window. Where yours is mounted, it looks like, at the very least, it does not have a clear look backwards. Mine is mounted just below the mirror. Often (and I suspect this is your reasoning) people say that if its high and centered, the fuzz can see it when they are behind you by looking in thru the rear window. I'd suggest that by the time you get zapped, you can take it down before anyone pulls in behind you, as long as its legal in your state, who cares if they can see it, and you can also get a remote display so nothing would be visible from behind. Also, if it is mounted right under the mirror, it is more difficult to see when it is off and/or during the day (even if on) since the unit will form part of the dark mirror silhouette. Hope that helps.

    Love the car.

    wmondo,

    The current position is the "around town" position. I live in Jackson Hole, WY, a small town where the local constabulary knows each of the 911s (maybe five total) and both of the Ferraris in the area, so I take it easy around town, and do not need maximum radar detection. For trips, it goes high and center.

    I'd say Porsche and Ferrari should offer an integratable module for the radar detectors...

    I dig your color combo. Wouldn't wish those wheels on anybody who cleans their own car!! My standard S wheels are a pain as it is, but I love 'em. I dig the blue though. I've got terracotta. Why be normal?? Can you imagine if every piece of furniture in your house HAD to be tan, grey or black? Only prison cells are limited such. Enjoy!!
