    Re: My new (p)ride and joy

    Pic #1 is the best combo car/background shot that i can remember seeing!

    Re: My new (p)ride and joy

    Matt:

    Excellent. That car looks hott!! Love the Carrera Sports.

    Re: My new (p)ride and joy

    Shweeet!!!

    Re: My new (p)ride and joy

    Great looking car. I also love the pics of the mountains in the back.

    Re: My new (p)ride and joy

    Thanks very much guys, will post some more if the weather permits.

    However, that's probably not going to happen anytime soon. It almost looks like on Gnils pics now as we had quite a bit of new snow this afternoon.

    But why would you not get winter tyres?

    I have a VW Golf V6 4-motion for winter time driving. Quite reliable and perfect for muddy/salty weather.

    Only comment is that the car seems rather high!?!
    It could because of the angle you took the picture from, you seemed to be very low.

    You're right, I was kneeling down for these pics.

    Just passed your hometown an hour ago! It was snowy there too.

    Am I right to say that you are from Basel Land (seems your plate shows BL)?

    Nope, just about the "opposite" of Basel on the east side, but still not that far from your Autobahns.

    Let me know before you're visting. Would be nice to meet some fellow rennlister, even if it's just for a




    Just one more - a comparison old meets new (can't wait to do some real "generation pics" next spring).

    Re: My new (p)ride and joy

    That's it. Your wonderful pictures have inspired me to get my stuff and walk out of this office and go for a drive. Don't care what kind of example I'm setting nor what kind of lame excuse I use!

    Re: My new (p)ride and joy

    Congrats Beautiful

    Re: My new (p)ride and joy

    What wonderful pics. Your final shot brings back great memories.I had a 1988 Carrera Cab (US Specs) Guards Red & Black with the front and rear spoiler! Car had the tonneeau cover with those snaps, and the raised hub. I really enjoyed that car.

    Re: My new (p)ride and joy

    Fantastic car Matt, just like mine..nearly,you are missing some hips and where is the snow???? Skiing season has started!!!
    Great photos....congratulations!!!!! It looks like you are in Schwytz? Right?
    I hope we meet on a pass sometimes this spring...

    Re: My new (p)ride and joy

    She's a beaut for sure, but, like a few others, I also think the ride height seems a bit high, especially at the back. I hadn't noticed this on other PASM equipped 997S's.

    Is it just the photo angles?

    Re: My new (p)ride and joy

    WOW! Great pics... & car!

    Take requests? A pic from semi-low rear off-center left w/ mtns. in background.

    Re: My new (p)ride and joy

    Congrats!
    When i saw the wheels in Frankfurt i didn't particulary liked them; (on a dark car)
    Seeing them on your seal car..... greaaaaat!!!

    Re: My new (p)ride and joy

    Nice......

    Re: My new (p)ride and joy

    cool pics and great car! congratulations!!!

    Re: My new (p)ride and joy

    Super ------ but garage it for 2-3 months!? Get some winter Contis, and on the nice crisp nights, or days, when the snow is clear of the roads, or is packed snow, drive the beauty. The 997 was designed and tested for winter surfaces. Please!-----

    Re: My new (p)ride and joy

    Matt C and Gnil, two beautiful cars in a beautiful land!

    Re: My new (p)ride and joy

    Awesome combo, Matt! I'm sure you'll find some opportunities to enjoy your babies before spring time!

    Yeah, thanks- that would be great! I'll send you a PM after I order my car next month and get my itinerary set.

    Enjoy.


    Re: My new (p)ride and joy

    absolutely gorgeous. I think you may have just convinced me to get seal, although i may go for the cocoa interior. the rims look great painted in seal. beautiful

    Re: My new (p)ride and joy

    Matt, like you I wanted to order 20mm w/LSD, it's a free option in Melbourne, but having driven one from Porschecentre, i'm glad I went with PASM. Way too stiff for me. Great handling though. Great pics.

    Re: My new (p)ride and joy

    Initially I was not sure about those wheels, but man they do look very nice. Congratulations on a beautiful car.

    Re: My new (p)ride and joy

    Matt,

    Congratulations ! You car is absolutely beautiful and I really love the Carrera Sport wheels. The only thing I would advise if I may is to remove the Amag sticker on the back of your car...

    One question from the French speaking guy I am : is seal gray what is called gris kerguelen in French ?

    Re: My new (p)ride and joy

    Thank Nico. I am really glad that I ordered the Carrera Sport wheel. You cannot imagine how nerve-wracking this decision was as I hadn't seen them in reality when I ordered them.

    You are correct: "Gris Kerguelen métallisé" is indeed seal gray. I checked it on the french car configurator. What an ugly sounding name for such a beautiful color.

    BTW - good advise about the sticker. Will remove it in spring. The car is currently sleeping with its pyjama on (car cover that is, which was a nice gift from my dealer), waiting for better weather.

    Re: My new (p)ride and joy

    Awesome ride Matt..

    Enjoy in good health..

    throt...

    Re: My new (p)ride and joy

    I officially regret my lobster-forks, danm those wheels are smooth on seal, as good as or better than any of the aftermarkets IMO, even with the lift kit
    Congrats Matt, hope spring comes quickly for you

    Re: My new (p)ride and joy

    Congratulations! Matt The car looks awesome. The wheels look superb too!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Re: My new (p)ride and joy

    Are you a photographer? The Pictures looked like it should be on a magazine

    Re: My new (p)ride and joy

    Nice car Matt! Will you take her to another Porsche training? And how do you like the adaptive sports seats so far?

    Re: My new (p)ride and joy

    being a waiter, I have a fairly substantial collection of photos from the internet to get me by until my car arrives. Great looking combination and definitely the best composed photos I have downloaded (I do pro aerial photography). In fact, your photo is my desktop background. Great looking car and photos!

    Re: My new (p)ride and joy

    Wow, really great machine!!! I wish my car will come with the great view of the mountains...what was the cost of that Porsche option?

    Re: My new (p)ride and joy

    Thanks again, guys. Will take/post some more in spring. The car's been under a cover for weeks now (as we're not having a Dubai winter over here).

    Not to a Porsche training but I am scheduled to attend the 3-day-training of the Scuderia Hanseat on the Nurburgring Nordschleife in May.
    As regards the adaptive sport seats, can't say much yet as I was not able to put more that 300km on it (Snow came two days after picking the car up ).

    That can't be a Porsche option. Cause if it was, I wouldn't be able to afford it.
