WOW - Congrats. The car that left the biggest impression on me of all of the cars that I have ever driven (and I have driven many) was a 997.1 GT3. Tried one in 2007 and it has been my dream car ever since! I have never driven the 997.2 GT3 but I can only imagine it's even better. When they release the 991 GT3 w/PDK (I think it's expected in '13 or '14) then I am going to take a serious look at it. If anyone hasn't tried one then I would strongly recommend it - there's a reason why it has such a cult following and always has such amazing reviews in the car magazines. It might be the best car on the road right now...

If you're up for showing it to a fellow LA board member in-person then please PM me - I am in Santa Monica. Also, I would be happy to introduce you to a West LA shop owner who owns a GT3 RS 4.0. All the cars he works on are high-end he personally owns a GT3 RS 4.0, Carrera S, Mclaren, '13 M5, etc. He's an auto enthusiast in-general and a really, really nice guy...

Congrats and feel free to PM me if you would like to discuss. Enjoy your fantastic ride!

Jeremy

Is that the good model with more downforce and center locking wheels? Love those.
