    My Turbo Exists and We Are Almost United.

    Holy Freekin' Cow!

    "My" Turbo has been found sitting in a lot (?) and is getting shipped from another dealer to my dealer. Should be here SOON.

    It is Slate with black interior and has heated A.S.S., and SC. (no other options, fiiiiine with me)

    Will tell y'all about it as soon as I get thru the ordeal of delivery day and "trecherous" drive home. You KNOW the biggest, most dangerous part of getting a new car is not to smash it up as you drive it off the lot. .

    WOWOWOWOW! I broadcast heartfelt gratitude to all you great guys for helping me figure this out and answering my sometimes-wild questions.

    Also, while I'm at it: thanks for kindly tolerating my always-tentative sometimes "crazy" opinions and speculations.

    Looking forward to more of it... and news about your car of course.

    Re: My Turbo Exists and We Are Almost United.

    Congratulations MMD. My is slate as well. I heard that only 4 out of 5 Vipers make it home intact from the dealer.

    Re: My Turbo Exists and We Are Almost United.

    Congratulations! Good choice.

    I presume it's a tip.

    Re: My Turbo Exists and We Are Almost United.

    Are you Peter in Peter and the Wolf?

    You raise all kinds of issues and philosophical questions and go out and act contrary to your expressed views?

    Next time... as with Peter in the story, you cry wolf (raise some issue) and nobody will reply.

    P.S. - Just go easy on that 1st gear, as per your statement, you hit the rev limiter all the time. I guess it's time for driving school.

    Re: My Turbo Exists and We Are Almost United.

    Congrats! Don't forget the pics!

    Re: My Turbo Exists and We Are Almost United.

    congrats, we're looking forward to see some pics!

    About 10 years ago a friend of mine had his new slightly used 993 Cab (300 miles) delivered to his office by the dealer, waited until late after rush hour to leave so he could enjoy driving without the traffic.

    He got a speeding ticket within 1/4 mile of the office. I swear.

    Be careful out there. And congratulations.

    MMD,
    Congrats but does this mean I need to change my username from Ksurg to Wussieguy. Don't worry the hemorrhage from my back will stop soon.

    Actually only kidding. If it were an option I would probably gotten the manual too. Enjoy!

    Dang it! I knew that would be misunderstood the second I hit the send button! My M3 with SMG gets borrowed by some of my people who can't drive a stick. No way they will ever ask to try the Turbo.

    Keep in mind I'm done with manuals when/if the Turbo S comes out with PDK!!
