    Gnil:

    It looks good blush  You must be ready now to put some miles on it after the long winter. How do you like it ?

    Thanks Gnil.

    Was just taking it easy driving around town last night, not high speed.

    But with the manual transmission, NA engine, wind in the hair, it reminds me of the pure joy of driving, something that our kids and grandkids do not know what they are missing.

    I like this car a lot.  Probably the best driver car among new cars for sale recently.  It does not need high speed to offer me the joy.  Not sure if this is a good thing, but I do not have any other car to look forward to.  Most if not all of my future cars will be mainly just appliances for transportation.

    Also, starting Jan 2022, there will be an extra 10% of sales tax for luxury cars and boats in Canada.  If I buy a Porsche over CAN $200K, then the sales tax will be 36%.Smiley

     

     

    As I understands the new 20%/10% tax only applies to new cars..................

    Just because you're the first to drive it doesn't mean you have to be the first name on the title. Maybe Smiley I have no idea what I'm talking about.


    Re: First drive of spring - post yours too!

    Also, the lux tax applies on the amount over 100k, so if the car is 150, you pay the lux tax on the 50.

    That's cool, so if I find a blue 993 turbo S or something at least I know you won't be bidding against me Smiley

    Well it's 20% of the amount over 100k, or 10% of the total price as tax, whichever is lower. 

    The breaker point is somewhere around 220k or so

    well, you are going to let me drive it, so why will I compete with you to pay? Smiley

    Thanks Nick wink

    Just installed thicker cushions with better lumbar support.

    Seat belts match up with the color pattern so I don’t need to change them indecision

    Very nice. Where did you order these from Tim? Did you go with the inflatable lumbar or fixed?

    P1Design.

    inflatable not available for Speedster seat, so I settled for fixed.

    now seat bottom is thicker, together with lumbar support, makes the bucket seat more tolerable for long drive.

    here’s a before and after picture for comparison.

    Re: First drive of spring - post yours too!

    Thanks. I does look way more comfortable. I have a folded up towel behind my seat cushion for some lumbar support at the moment. surprise


    Re: First drive of spring - post yours too!

    The whole bucket just need to lean back another 15 degree or so to be comfortable.

    Wonderful, Christian! kiss

    Thank you, it was a beautiful day and so many nice cars on the roads. Smiley We even greeted each other, was real fun.

    You guys need to click on the photos to see the full pic but the pics are a little bit processed (I was in a hurry), color accuracy may not be perfect but the blue sky was really that blue, it looked amazing. It was something we call "Kaiserwetter" (Emperor weather) in Bavaria.

    Beautiful Christian, thanks for sharingwink


    Re: First drive of spring - post yours too!

    Looking good. The white makes the car easy to look at. A good color for this agressive enough shape.

    But what is the bug flying over the car in the first pic ?
