Got my car...

Just a quick pic and a note to say thanks to all the members here who have educated me over the past almost two years. Taking tons of pics, seeing lots of things; I'm sure a lengthy ED debrief post will ensue later on.

My only real initial feedback besides the fact that the car is all I had hoped, is that I think its impossible to judge the CP power changes before break-in is complete. I did a good 40 miles of harder driving, varying RPMs, etc to seat the rings, but kept it under 5400RPM. The steering and dampers on the other hand definitely a nice improvement from my initial impressions of the non-CP car (but that could have been highly influenced by today's adrenaline). While it is nice, its still nothing I'd run out and trade a '12 or '13 in on.

Sadly, Grossglockner was fogged in above 2000M... here's a pic from the backside coming into Heiligenblut!

Looks stunning but they appear to have put the steering wheel on the wrong side?

Congratulations. The 601Ms are really starting to grow on me. Looks like you also spec'd the LEDs - I'm still trying to convince myself that the LCI xenons don't look that bad in comparison. LOL.

Must resist temptation to retrofit...

Wait, where's the picture of your new Porsche, B-1 Pilot??!?!??!! As URBAN LEGEND would say: Straight B.S.

LOL! Just kidding. Congrats bro! She looks amazing. Wish I could get a 2014 with the CP also, but I'm gonna wait.

LOL! Nice Dave! I was half expecting B-1 to say he decided to go to Stuttgart instead of Munich

Nice car B-1! Enjoy the trip! Can't wait to see more pics

Lookin good. Congrats! Do yourself a favor and really take advantage of those pristine roads over there. It is torture when you get back stateside and have to drive with a bunch of dumb fucks clogging the highways.

Thanks, its definitely noticeable... not sure if it will even need spacers.

Yes... a color that still blows me away in person (much I'd imagine colors like moonstone and other do...) Once I saw it I did a 180 from what color I thought I would get. I think it works well with the 601s, and will be even better with some slight IND mods.

The LEDs are amazing on any car they are on (quite a few now at the BMW Welt). Not enough night driving to speak to their capabilities, but do like the look a lot.

Haha! No offense to the P-car gang, but they sound like my Dad. He's got more than a few Porsche's he's spends more time detailing than driving, all while extolling to me the virtues of their performance. My car is meant to be driven, and enjoyed by more than just two people.... I'm sure I'll get a P-car too when I get around my Dad's age...


Alright off to the next driving adventure today. From Grossglockner to Stelvio to Lake Como!
