2007 E92 M3  [0.00]
Finally - a White GT3 on the road!

It's been a glorious sunny day here in UK, with temp up to 15 deg C (for early Feb this is not normal - but then what is?).

I was out in the M3 and ahead of me saw a white 911 - keen to see what it was, I booted it and as the car in front pulled over I saw it was a new 997 GT3 - wide rear wheel arches and that fantastic wing - I think he was slightly surprised to see me in his rear view mirror. He kindly pulled over and I passed. He then followed. I am very pleased to say he kept his distance and we went rather fast. The view in the rear view mirror was awesome - a mix of halogen blue headlight, white bodywork glistening in the sun and the black grilles - all looked squat and mean and purposeful.

I then put the window down and waved him to come by - which he did - and I gestured he had an amazing car - he smiled and waved back. He put the foot down and I listened and it was heaven - and amazing sound.

I think I know what my next car is....

Good story. Glad you didn't end up racing.

Man, you guys outside of the US are having all these memorable experiences, and we are stuck discussing order status numbers!

Cool story. It's nice to hear opposing marque's showing respect. Yeah... the sound of a GT3, incredible.
