Bye Bye Turbo Porsche, Hello M Funf!

Just placed my order for a 13 Monte Carlo Blue M5 with 20's and a few nick nacks. Baby on the way, so need a few more doors
Now the miserable wait commences...
Here is the outgoing toy:

Wow, what a man has to give up for his children! I hope the sweet M5 will not make you sad you had to kick out the 911.

Whats funny is that I was going to get a gt3 or 996tt before getting my M5 and your getting ready to do the opposite. How ironic. You will be very happy with your purchase. I know I made the right decision.

I sold my Z06 when I got married. But I bought a Shelby GT500 which was half the cost, but still fulfilled the need for speed. 800hp later lol...

Well the Porsche and my 1 series have felt so small to me that I look forward to being comfortable in a car!!! The thing is as fast as my stock Z06! Nuff said!

Is that 997TT at stock height? Looks like it's ready to go 4 wheelin!

J/k - congrats on the decision. I don't have the F10 yet - but from what I've read, you won't regret it.

Came from a 997.2 Targa 4s, the ///M is awesome but you will need to add a few things to it to give you a more raw experience. Top of the list is an exhaust Congrats on the new baby, lots of sleepless nights but so worth it!

That was a great looking 997! The F10 M5 will not disappoint, especially given that you were enjoying a turbo car just before the M5. Congratulations!

Thank you Sir! I plan on doing some of your goodies to rid the car of filthy chrome lol... Nothing like buying mods before the car is here!
