Would any of you with the gift be so kind to post the link to the vid with AP to those of us waiting on our car?

Unfortunately it appears that you have to register your email and supply the provided code to get the link to the video emailed to you. Once registered the video link requires sign in with that personal email. Here is the general link: www.porsche.com/911-gt3-specials

Just got this today as well. I'm not on the list to buy, but a nice surprise and glad to know they are thinking of me (and my wallet). I had to admit, I was rather confused by the random assortment of items. A nice quality book about the new GT3. A small pamphlet with a code telling you to visit the website and register. And finally, an Apple-esque packed chunk of metal and a diagram telling you to rub it on your tablet. Actually reading the pamphlet helped reveal there was the centerlock looking screen cleaner inside the puck

Crap, just realized I never gave my sales guy my address, so I'm probably not getting anything :-(

I received this last year, around late October. It didn't come with the brochure & I'm not on the list for a new 991GT3; I was totally surprised.
Maybe the amount of current Canadian GT3/RS owners is so small, they picked a few guys & sent them out.
Nice gesture for sure...

I got the package today in the mail, but they must be sending it to current owners of a GT3 as I don't have one on order, and plan on keeping mine with the third pedal...

Not sure what the "screen cleaner" thing is but it looks neat...

Hopefully it will be over soon and I can't imagine it won't be worth it.

LOL. You'll get it soon 0q991. Since no body did a review on it I'll make sure you don't miss a beat until you get yours.

Where to start, this new metal has the markings of the new 991 gt3 which makes it the newest metal cleaner by porsche. As I took it for a ride on my iPad I noticed that it did require more thumb as opposed to my napkin. In a way I felt more connected as my fingers can feel all the groves on the cleaner for grip. It was quite a rewarding experience. I must warn you that this is a very pad orientated product so your DD on uneven surfaces may be unpleasant. Hope you get yours soon.

@Dude -- Haha. Nice. But you didn't address the all-important question--do you feel less involvement with it than previous gens?

Its faster. Previous gen required the pinky. Without the pinky I was able to change directions much quicker therefor my exit was quicker with less resistance. You gotta try it to believe it. Trust me.
