Thanks to all the folks who shared my delivery excitement. I got to know the car considerably today, and will post a full summary soon.

It's been great to hang out with you. Glad we connected through this forum.

And I wasn't even pushing it beyond 5500rpms the whole day. It felt so awkard to back off at that point. But I am guilty of going full throttle at times. I just couldn't help it. I had to see what that would do. I'm going to take it easy during the rest of the break-in though. My friend Mark, the third car in our little delivery convoy, couldn't keep up either and he was driving a well-chipped '02 S4.

New car

I know how you feel--been driving mine for a week and it's still very special. Need to take a trip to get to 1,200 quicker. I went to get gas today and a freak hail storm laid 1/2" of ice on the road. PS2s no likey--alomost didn't make it 1/2 mile home.

Good to hear your excitement is ongoing.

It is soooo hard to back off at 5500 rpms...

Bad scenario with the hail and ice. It snowed very briefly while I was picking up my car and I was going, "Oh, no!", but fortunately, it was a dry partially sunny day.

I am assuming that you are aware of the parts shortage and folks not being able to complete their 1200 service?

Yes, to the 911S. Used if optioned and priced right. New (FL) if not.

I will be cancelling my GT-R. I found it to be very cheap looking (We went to NYC and stopped in at the auto show.) and not what I want in a sports car, no matter how fast it is. I am trying to resist the urge to order a 2009 (FL) 997 turbo. I may get a 2009 M, but I will have to see how the 911 works out first. I do not want to trade my 335 yet and want to see how the DCT thing plays out.

I can not wait to hear more about your car. She looks sweet!

Full coverage and nicer pics most likely tomorrow night…

The following should keep the picture gods satisfied until then.

Also, thanks to WCH who showed up and over the car with me during delivery!
nice man!!!! congrats that looks really good.

Parts needed to perform the 1200 service are not in the US yet, so dealers are sending people back. I'll use a coffee filter.
