Finally got her!

4 weeks from the day I placed the order, not bad, I must say. I'll spare everyone the boring details, the options that mean anything are:

- 6-Speed
- Competition package
- Performance exhaust (sounds pretty decent. Not loud but not quiet)
- Carbon fiber splitters
- Michelin tires

And here's the photo. The orange reflectors are already gone. Pic below.

The color looks sick, I love it!! Im really thinking about getting the performance exhaust as well. I like the raspy sound of it with WOT
Congrats on the gorgeous car.

Thanks everyone. I am loving the car so far. The noise level of the performance exhaust is probably as loud as the Kelleners exhaust on my E39 M5s. I love how it really has a nice range of sound as opposed to just bassy on the low end and nothing up top.

To answer the question about getting rid of the Turbo. I got it new on a $30k discount, and I was able to drive it for almost two years and trade it in for more than what I paid for it. I got a Cayenne S for my then-expecting wife plus a load of cash back. To be honest, I really do not miss the Turbo. The acceleration maybe, but I was never 100% comfortable with the dynamics of the P-Car.
