Beautiful! Looking forward to seeing the interior shots. Would also love your impressions of the 981 and 987 Spyders.

Thanks.

Pros:
-Exhaust Note - OMG the sound!
-3.8 - Love that NA horsepower
-Suspension - IMHO perfect.
-Steering - yeah... No direct feel like the hydraulic, but I still love it.
-PTS - Finally the color I always wanted... I constantly look for excuses to go in the garage just to get a peak at it.
-PCCBs... Really love them.
-Handling... So balanced

Cons (very little, but if I had to list any minor things):
-Roof (miss the simplicity of the 987.2... Wish I could run it with the back open). Hate the closing procedure having to have the key in the ignition and pushing the button... Seems simple, but annoying.
-Wind Turbulence... It has more than the 987.2
-Blind Spots are worse on the 981... Backup camera is a must.
-Back up camera... My Rubicon X has a better camera resolution... Which is SAD!

Honestly the 987.2 and 981 are too different animals. If I could, I would own both. You got to love the raw simplicity of the original... Truly special... But at the same time if I could only own one? 981 hands down... It is the best of all worlds.

I think being able to customize my Spyder exactly how I wanted with PTS and more made a huge difference personally. It is almost like the car is a part of me. Working directly with Melissa Witek at PCNA communicating on the regular basis throughout the whole process was awesome.
