Default Orthojoe .2 GT3 Thread

I took delivery of my .2 GT3 yesterday. No reviews until I get through my break in period of 2 tanks of gas. It will be strange driving this car up to Thunderhill next weekend only to hop into a spec miata for a race, but it will be a nice chance to put in some miles. As someone pointed out in another thread, even though I'm a "worthless" customer, here we are with another GT car to explore and get the most out of.

I'm just gonna post pics and a quick video for now. This is the most heavily spec'd car I've done so far. MSRP came out to 163k. I couldn't pass up the 'deal' on GT silver for $720 (back up to 4k on the RS now, wth!?!). I normally hate black wheels, but the JDM kid in me couldn't resist the allure of the red pinstripe to go with red bits on the inside.

Pics for now to start the thread.

Congrats man! Very nice spec. Anxious to see your opinions about the car vs the .1 after you drive it on the track.

Love the spec; car looks great! Will be interesting to hear your views on the manual versus your recent PDK adventures.

Surprised you didn't get red belts instead of silver ones.

Sharp build. I especially like the red lip on the wheels. OTOH, your dash looks spartan. You needed the sport chrono option.

Nice drone work!
really shows the car well, but the operator in the background looks like the drivers I keep seeing around me with their heads down. ��
btw... really nice car!!

Wow, wasn't really too fond of the red stripe wheels before, but they really pop on the GT silver. Nicely done!
