Congrats. May you have good driving weather for the rest of the week.

How are you going to decide who drives first? Coin toss? Rock, paper, scissors?

One word of advice. Push the "power" button before you leave the dealership. In "normal" mode, the throttle seems really soft and made me feel a little apprehensive. I knew that the engine was powerful and was reluctant to push the peddle too far for fear that it would suddenly unleash a beast. "Sport" mode makes you feel a little more in control.

Cheers you all ! re: who's driving it first - well, that has been subject of various discussions for the past weeks. Today, however, my husband is the lucky one mainly because "I'm the best wife in the world" and I'll LET him and secondly because I have a really bad flu so with all the painkillers I've been swallowing today I don't think it's a good idea for me to drive now

... and YES you will get photos although not with fantastic sunny landscapes - at least the ones from tonight - let's not forget we are in Luxembourg and the sun has sort of forgotten WHERE exactly that is And it's a pity we couldn't go in the afternoon already, because it will be pitch black when we go pick it up and the photo quality will suffer from the artificial light

but NEVER MIND, we are picking it up tonight, that's all that matters at this point and time

Do you guys mind if we have dinner first ? The photos at the dealers are really crappy - there's no way I'll post them here. It was dark outside and the showroom lights reflect from the black paint - looks nasty ! Give us one more hour and you'll get some better quality pics. Here's a little teaser though

And what comes to first impressions: purrs like a kitten and roars like lion, smooth and agressive at the same time. As I said after the test drive - it truly is 'an orgasm on 4 wheels' ! - I mean driving the beast is like that... well not exactly, but you know what I mean

10 km - the dealer had to go to do the MOT and it's not exactly on the same street.
