Default First-Time Porsche Owner, Atlanta

Hi All,
I'm a recent convert from Audi and just received my CPO 2014 911. Thought I'd post a photo and introduce myself!


Saying bye to my S3 for my CPO C2

Car Details:
2014 C2 9,500 miles
PDK
Premium Package
Ventilated Seats
PASM
Sport Chrono
PSE
Navigation
Bose
Sunroof in Glass
20" Carerra Classic Wheels

I'm coming from an Audi S3, which I've had for just over 2 years, and shopped for the right 911 for about 9 months before picking this one up from Tom Wood Porsche Indianapolis. The S3 was fun but I was ready for something a little more "grown up" since I'm now closer to my mid thirties than mid twenties :P I saw JCC911S recently posted from Atlanta about his new ride and it prompted me to do the same. I do plan to join Peachstate PCA and hope to meet some of you all in the future.

Happy New Year,
Rob

Nice car. I purchased a 2014 six weeks ago that is optioned the same. Has just shy of three years left on the cpo warranty. Had 2,500 miles on it when I picked it up in CVG and drove it home to ATL. Really enjoying the car. I have wanted one since I was a young kid and sometimes just go out to the garage and look at it as I enjoy a beer or a scotch. Enjoy it and if you need a recommendation for paint protection film just ask. I had mine done two weeks ago.

Absolutely gorgeous car! Exactly what I would get if or when the time comes! I *love* that white with the black roof appearance. How's the ride quality compared to the S3?

On a side note, did you ever have issues finding a good seating position in the S3? I had a 1.8T A3 for a commuter a couple of years ago and I could just never quite get comfortable. The angle between the seat and steering wheel always made the wheel feel slightly too craned upward, despite trying to fix it. I imagine the S3 may have had more move points than the seat or wheel in it's little brother.

Looks great. I've been enjoying my new-to-me 991 for a few months now. In Atlanta also.

Where did you go? Mine looks aged, so I'm thinking about getting it redone.

I found the seat in the S3 to be OK, but it just. wouldn't. go. low. enough... lol. I had the standard power sport seats that come in the S3 and not the manual upgraded sport ones... but from what I hear the only difference is the seat back and not the base.

As far as ride quality goes, this doesn't quite soak up the bumps in comfort mode quite as well, but it's overall similar.

I picked this car up for $68,000 with a very fair trade-in value on my S3.

Had mine done 4 years ago and still looks great. Highly recommend Derek at Atlanta Protective Films.
