    OMG what an experience, the service and the whole day, museum and lunch knowing your car is in the same building. I like the customer car bay, you get the feeling you LITERALLY drive it out of their showroom, what an experience that must have been!! 

    Please do post more pics of your new beauty at home and also the rest of the museum pics as well! 

    Enjoy in good health, lovely GT3!

    indeed shifting is ancient technology - so is a fuel burning engine..  I happen to like both :) 


    Re: My 2011 GT3 Factory collection story (Lots of pics)

     After leaving the museum it was back to the car which had now been moved outside and time to hit the road. It was about 15:30 and the sun had broken through. We had about a four hour drive ahead of us to a hotel in Epernay.

    After about two hours driving we took a comfort break and i let m dear old dad take over the driving for a bit !

    Note dear old dad taking a pain relief pill for his bad knee (Maybe not the right car to be in)

    Well we finally got to the hotel, had a fantastic three course meal and wine, then managed to watch the crappy England second half......

    Great hotel with SAFE parking as they have a moat around it. They also lock the main gates after 21:00.

    The hotel rooms were nice and the rate was not to bad €160

    Well what can i say about the GT3 that hasn't already been said ? For me this has been the first sports car i have ever had that has not left me wanting, it's perfect.

    I now plan to finish running the car in carefully, get an oil change at 3000 Km, and have some clear paint protection film fitted.

    Re: My 2011 GT3 Factory collection story (Lots of pics)

    That was great. Thanks for sharing.

     

    You GOT THE PIC - with your GT3 on the Bridge at the hotel. Good Job. The night shot was good too. The whole time looks like great fun and something special to share with your father. How much real building of cars did you see on the tour?

    Was the french Hotel equal on the inside to the appearance on the outside?


    Re: My 2011 GT3 Factory collection story (Lots of pics)

    Congratulations, this is an amazing car, you made a very good choice. 

    Just don't forget: this is still a GT3, it can be a lot of fun to drive but it can also be a very dangerous car. Take it slow in the beginning.

    Have fun ! 

    Thanks a lot for the detailed pick-up report and the great photos, I really enjoyed it...almost as if I picked up my own car. Smiley
