break-in is finally complete :-)
all I can say is WOW, this car is way faster and more fun than I had ever anticipated when I got it (pulls strongly even up here in denver).
So, I will share some observations after 1584 miles:
-above 4k she really comes alive and pulls strong to 7200 (yes, I have hit the rev limiter a few times)
-avg mpg is STILL above 22mpg even with 84 miles (since break-in complete) of living above 4k and even averaged 26mpg on a 500 mile trip
-this car is more exhilirating than all of my previous cars (see sig) with the exception of the 993tt
-feels much faster than any of previous cars with the exception of the 993tt
-i get more compliments and looks on this one than any of the others
-stock suspension seems quite capable for a street/track car
-build quality is on another level from my previous modern era porsche (2000 boxster s)
-bluetooth works very well
-only burned 1/3 quart of oil in first 1500 miles!
-great car for a road trip, we easily had enough room to stow gear for a 5-day trip
-aux input does not charge iphone or allow control from stereo also volume issues
-iphone won't synch contacts (bluetooth)
-sport chrono won't let you recall previous laps (need nav)
-one minor squeak near passenger window
-tpms is off by 3-4 pounds per tire
-wish I would have gotten the pse option (will upgrade exhaust at some point)
-initially wanted to lower the car slightly but it scrapes at stock ride height...
Overall, I am extremely
with my decision and absolutely love this car. I do plan on picking up an old 911 (930, 964, or 993) in the next couple years to complement it, as I will always have a thing for the older air-cooled 911's.
However, I will say that this car is certainly making a strong bid for a place of its own in porsche history.
