    Gnil congrats on your new LO beast!  Re. the photos, you know from previous posts that LO is difficult to photograph - this is partly because it is a color that pushes to the limit the color gamut of most computer screens, and also this color is dependent on the light in the scene, and on the white balance the camera uses.  If these were phone shots, most phone cameras do a poor job in auto-setting white balance consistently, so not a surprise that your photos vary.  If you are thinking about getting more serious photos done, perhaps consider using a camera that can shoot raw files (where white balance can be adjusted in processing -- with jpegs you cannot do this), and even do a custom white balance by shooting a grey card before the photography.  (sorry if this is too much.... photography is a hobby!) .    

    Thanks for the tip. These photos were indeed done with my iphone . I am not that much into cameras . I like to take pictures, but never given the time to go further .

    Nothing beats Switzerland and the Lac Leman Grant!

    You should try Lake Garda or maybe even Lake Mead in Las Vegas (if you are into desert nature). Smiley

    Have to admit I admired the scenery more than your beautiful car GNIL :) but then again I am biased and while Dubai is a great city you don't get such wonderful sceneries.

    Not much green in Dubai? Smiley

    This being said, driving the RS in between vignards and in towns must not be very enjoyable. Thank God for the highways ;)

    Felicitations elle est vraiment superbe! Smiley

     

    I actually think that Gnil enjoys his RS mostly between vineyards and in small towns (sound reflection from the walls of buildings) or mostly on country roads. Not that much fun on highways, at least this is what I think.

    Re: 991 GT3 RS

    After I got back from Rennsport Reunion, first thing I did was to grab the keys to the GT3RS, not the 918, and go for a drive. Did a round trip to Whistler and turn around did another round trip. Almost 600km. It's up to 1500km in a little bit over a month of ownership, compared with 2500km on my 918 in almost a year.

    The last time I drove on this road was in January. I was hoping for good snow but it was raining. Vancouver 16°C and Whistler top 8°C. 

    Could imagine how nice it is to drive their with the BEST car. Enjoy it.
