Wow cool car. My local porsche dealer is nothing like that. They are bunch of assholes, I remember going in with my parents once to look at a SUV and the sales people didn't even bother to get up and see if we needed help. Then ended up getting an X5 next door.

It is unfortunately true. But from here, I don't know where to go.

no, he went from a GT3 to the new 4S.

Wow! All Porsche dealerships I've walked into were super nice and friendly. I get snooty attitudes from BMW, Merc, Ferrari, Lambo, even once at Kia! The Kia guy giving me this look for me to gtfo because I was wearing my star wars tshirt and jeans. Then when he saw me leaving in my 4S, priceless!

I'm assuming you think Lebanon looks like Afghanistan. :/

a GT3 doesn't get particular thumbs up, but it does earn you "parking respect".
The Lebs on the board will understand what I mean by that.
Everywhere you go has valet (yes, even McDonalds), and the place infront of it gets the nicest cars parked.
Parking Respect:
- (Price of car + price of license plate) * Year of production = parking respect.
I wish I was making this shit up. Of course, it can all be waved if you know the owner or are really good friends with the valet people.

So Parking Respect buys you the ability to no let valet drive your car and have your car parked up front regardless.
Nice cars parked infront leads to better prestige for the shop/club which leads to more people wanting to go to it.

Price of license plate. The less numbers you have, and the "cooler" the number combo, the more you pay for your plate. Plates like "666" or "911" can be sold for a few hundred thousand dollars. "5566" would go for like 15k.

Anyways, the GT3, it being a GT3 alone buys me a ton of parking respect. I still haven't plated it yet. No valet has argued with me, and that's the most you'll get from anyone here. Other porsche drivers have given me a thumbs up, and kids like to look at it like it is a matchbox car.

Also, married women give me this "I want you to be my chew toy" look.

that's how the locals take to it. :P

Haha, not at all. I spent a year in Northern Israel so made my assumption based off that. Even dodgy areas in Western Sydney at late night will come close to what I described lol, no joke.

But damn, that's true baller style. Now it makes complete sense why some Lebanese youth I know spend a lot of money financing/buying exotic cars. Status is a big part of the culture.

Price of rare-combo license plates is the same here. They're actually a good investment from what I hear.

Thanks for the insight. I'll make sure to throw some rocks at the next GT3 I see in remembrance of your car.
