    Re: The moment I've been waiting for...

    Pilot:

    I wish I had the photos in high resolution, but generally I shoot in small format to make it easier to download,upload and send. Thank you for the great compliments! Maybe I will shoot some future images in higher resolution, and hopefully those will live up to some of these 

    Too bad! BTW, would you let your son in law drive you cars? In that case, I would like to propose to your daughter... Smiley (Who is btw, a quite talented photographer!)

    Currently my No. 1 dream car - exact that color! 
    I talked with my wife about the car last week and she meant - if you wish to have it, so go for it!  But - I thought I will skip it this time, probably next generation I will be within the club! 

    I hope you have a lot of time to drive it every day! Enjoy!


    Re: The moment I've been waiting for...

    ...interesting...PILOT's car seems to resist day light....mmmhhh...I thought, it could only be driven at night....

    Enmanuel: Best picture of a GT3RS ever.

    Thanks. I wish I had it in high res.

    My daughter says thanks for the compliment, ...and how big is the rock? (just kidding

    Lars997: I hope you have a lot of time to drive it every day! Enjoy!

    I try to find as much time as I can- as you all had noticed I started out driving at night because that was the only time I had... now I have become more adventurous and set specific time aside to take the car out 

    d997h: ...interesting...PILOT's car seems to resist day light....mmmhhh...I thought, it could only be driven at night....

    Well, since my Batman cover was blown, I had to assume another identity... wonder who you guys will guess this time.

     

    Since the red air vent slats are one of my favorite custom feature of the car I decided to post another picture of them.

    OH! By the way I will add another personal touch to the car- personal license plates! I ordered them today.

    Re: The moment I've been waiting for...

    Great car and awesome photos. Congratulations! Enjoy it in the best of health. 


    Re: The moment I've been waiting for...

    Mike S: Thanks for the compliments, I will enjoy the car as much as I can ;) Thank you everyone for the compliments on the pics! We had a photo shoot planned for last weekend but my photographer got sick so we had to postpone it :( that is why there have been no new photos since the LA ones, sorry Enmanuel ;) We have something cool planned for new pics though, so stay tuned- they should be up within the next few days/week. And yes, we will take some hi-res ones :) Meanwhile I have a few questions: Does anyone use nitrogen tire gas and does this confuse the on-board tire pressure monitoring system since it adjusts for temperature increase? Regarding the dials: what is the best way to clean the dial screen? What meterial is it and does it scratch easily?What is the best/safest way to get a fingerprint off? I don't have to mention how much I love the car right? Although, 1st and 2nd gear are a b**** to get in when the gear box is cold ;) but I guess 1st and 2nd aren't that important anyway :) Cheers!

    Pilot, you are aware that you're last post with a picture was already 7 days ago and since you sort of committed yourself to a pic a day, you owe us at least 7 of them (and counting)...

     busted !! now you owe us big time.   Smiley


    Re: The moment I've been waiting for...

    Matt C, Enmanuel: Haha, I guess you caught me.

    Joost: Sorry to hear that, hope she'll have a quick recovery!

    Thanks, she is doing much better now.

    Porker, easy_rider911: I am glad you guys like it. I enjoy sharing the fun of the RS and my daughter loves taking pictures, so it’s perfect.

    We got up very early today to make the trip to Palm Springs; we wanted to get there before sunrise to capture the best sunlight for pics. We got there almost on time, but the haze diffused all the light anyway.

    As always, the driving was spectacular. Almost passed a police officer in his car on the side of the road going a little too fast, but we saw him in time. After reducing the roar of the engine I decided to try out the audio system for the first time. I must say, it sounds pretty awesome just like the rest of the car! 

    I can’t get over the perfection of this RS, if I could personally speak with Andreas Preuninger I would tell him how amazing the GT3RS is. Hope he reads this.

    Anyways... enough of that, this is what you guys are really waiting for.

    Enjoy the pics!! More to come ... (it is really late for me )

    Thanks for posting pilot - I have very fond memories of visiting Palm Springs CA. One of the most amazing things I saw was mile after mile of wind farms

     ..and for me, your pics remind me slightly of my  '84 school year in Wasco, near Bakersfield, a nice place to be

    indeed shifting is ancient technology - so is a fuel burning engine..  I happen to like both :) 


    Re: The moment I've been waiting for...

    Enmanual: Now we're back on track   great pics as always !

    You don't cut me any slack, do you?

    Gnil: ...'84 school year in Wasco...

    I'm sure it was quite different back then ...

    easy_rider911: I have very fond memories of visiting Palm Springs CA.

    We love it too in the winter time. Right now the desert is in full bloom ...

     

    Thanks for the comments guys; California still rocks in many ways.

    Re: The moment I've been waiting for...

    Okay, here is another one since I have to make good for the days I didn't post anything:

    5 points to whoever finds my daughter in this picture.

    My favorite place to take photos is the gas station.

    Atzporsche: in the passenger seat, how does she like the ride?

    Okay, you win... but did you really find her or are you taking a guess. And if she is indeed in the co-pilot seat, she likes the ride.

    Re: The moment I've been waiting for...

    This thread just turned interactive "find the daughter" web game 

    And no Pilot I can't cut you any slack, the pics are just so good I've become addicted and need my daily dose. Please don't cut us off  


    Re: The moment I've been waiting for...

    ... and I thought, that was your wife. Should better read the descriptions above. Anyway, love those pictures, car and scenery are marvellous!
