    Friends do not compete... we are merely spurring each other on Smiley Smiley Smiley

    Err....... I failed on that point Mike Smiley  In my defence I did have a radical clear out of last season's garage Smiley

    Whilst on the phone to me about the GTS my dealer told me my California is due to arrive with him in 3 weeks time so I'll be getting that cheque book out again extremely soon Smiley

    Thanks everyone for the kind words. I love the GranTurismo and the S is almost worth the extra over the standard car for the greatly improved soundtrack alone. Roll on Monday!

    bravo ;)

    Re: New daily

    My car arrived today exactly as promised by my dealer and they did a superb job of prep'ing it. I can honestly say it's the best presented new car I've ever taken delivery of. The paintwork is flawless and they have given the car a good coat of carnuba wax. It's been the best buying experience I've had from a Ferrari dealer thus far, and by some considerable margin, so I can't wait for the California now. It's due to arrive in the second week of November so only 3 or 4 weeks 'til I get my hands on it

    I went out for the inaugural trip in the GTS and simply cannot believe how Maserati ever got this exhaust passed as being legal for drive by noise reg's in sport mode. It's simply outrageous Neither of my Gallardo's nor my Scuderia come anywhere close to the aural theatre this thing provides whilst bumbling along around 30 mph. It's well over a year since I last drove a GTS with the MC shift and it's even better than I remembered. Watching peoples almost astonished reactions to the sound as I drove by through a couple of small towns was highly amusing. I fired it up in my garage and gave it a couple of blips of the throttle in sport mode. It sounded like the garage door had been blown clean off

    The Bose sound system has a new centre positioning listening feature which is great and the 2010 model year cars finally get TMC working on the nav (a major bugbear on my previous car) along with bluetooth (excellent and simplicity to pair up) and Ipod compatibility. Another nice improvement is the passenger airbag on the dash is no longer an ugly rectangular cut out. Instead it now comprises a much more aesthetically pleasing strip above the trim panel and no longer looks like an after thought. The build quality was very good on my original 08 model year car but this one is even better.

    Just got to get it over to Paintshield next week for full frontal clear bra protection and I'm good to go

    Now you know how much fun a really great sounding V8 is. 

     

    Hey why don't you drive it by these folks redlining in 1st gear.

    That looks like Easy and the Mrs. Smiley


    Re: New daily

      That car is perfect Isuk ! 


    Re: New daily

    ISUK, that looks amazing! I love the garden and the house When are we going to get some line up shots of the other siblings in the garage?

    Congrats again my friend! Sounds like you are really enjoying it!!!


    Re: New daily

    Thanks everyone

    Tom,

    I think that was the crew I did breeze by. They heard a frightful comtion and excitedly lifted up the gun only for me to roll round the corner under the limit but with the sound of the Valkyries booming out from my tailpipes... 

    Mike,

    Will take a line up shot when I get the Cali. They took my Scuderia away for it's 1st service yesterday so it's looking a bit sparse round here from an automotive viewpoint just now

    Iain,
    You have just taken the delivery of your GTS, and sent your Scud for 1st service via the same truck and waiting for the delivery of your Cali in less than a month Smiley

    Life cannot get better than this, I guess Smiley

    Beautiful garden I noticed like Mike Smiley
