    Got my car!!

    WoW what a ride it is literally sex on wheels! My sales rep was giving me a speech on how fortunate I was owning the car and when we turned the corner and looked at the car we both zoned out on the car and he was like what were we talkin about again?

    Picked the car up and drove it home all the while being stared at. I couldnt stop laughing and making a stupid grin. Ran it through the gears up until 3rd. HOly smokes the car goes like a bat outta hell. My friend and I were silent and sucked back in our seats until I let go of the gas and we were both like HOLY Sh*t!

    Im so flustered right now will take it out with my girlfriend downtown and hoepfully get some pics posted up!

    Re: Got my car!!

    Also another crazy thing I got NAV in my car when it wasnt speced out to have it as well as those extra option seats.

    whatta score!

    Re: Got my car!!

    Congrats.....Nav is standard on the Turbos by the way.

    Re: Got my car!!

    NIIIIICE! Ain't it?!

    I just got mine a few weeks ago. Nearly spun it out already (gravel on road) my advice:

    Becareful with that thing. Take it eeeeeasy, and do NOT show off with your friends in passenger seat. I, acting like a teenager again, tended to overdo it with an audience.


    Congratulations!

    What colour is yours?

    Re: Congratulations!

    Congratulations, my good man....like Eric said, what colour is yours? And what options did you get?

    I just spent the day driving 500 miles with Larry. Imagine two identical Turbos flying down the highway and through the twisties and you'll get a pretty good idea of what we did today. Just remember to take it easy during break in and then you'll have an awesome car once it's finally good to go!

    Re: Congratulations!

    I think its black non metallic.

    3rd car in a row in black but hey it works. Anyone got any advice for keeping black tiny scratch free?

    Re: Congratulations!

    One thing I noticed was when I turn the car off the car makes this weird grumbling soung almost gurgling...is this normal?

    I bought mine slightly used with 4800 miles on it. Not very many options: SC, heated seats and headcrests on seats.
    I was thinking of doing a carbon interior but I am really enjoying it stock...for now. Only thing is the exhaust is alil weak sauce. Need to work on that, but I just bouught a condo so im pretty low on funds!

    Re: Congratulations!

    Cograts! They are fast as hell aren't they!

    Re: Congratulations!

    Wow panda!
    Can imagine how you feel! Just bought my first house yesterday and couldn't stop grinning as well!Really looking forward to the pics. IMO, a black turbo is like a black panther; you know its mean and fast, but you hardly see it... really love that!

    Re: Got my car!!

    I had this feeling eight weeks ago, when the gate from the porsche factory opened - unforgettable.....

    I'm sure it will never let you down

    Re: Got my car!!

    Congrats Mate! Send some pictures.... cant wait to see them!

    Re: Got my car!!

    haudimal I can imagine! I really wanna go to the porsche factory...one day my friend one day..

    Re: Got my car!!

    Congrats to see another Turbo in Vancouver.

    Concerning keeping it scratch free, you could encased the car in a air bubble and not touch it forever........:)

    Or you could do the Ventura Shield stuff these guys have been doing to their front hood and fender, but wrap the whole body with it, so anything painted has a layer of plastic protecting it.

    Re: Got my car!!

    congrats man! you're lucky, i have to wait for another month, maybe a month and half!
