Glad you like.

I've been watching him for a while. Not sure how I stumbled upon him, but I find him very professional and zero pretentiousness. Looking forward to his trip. Although, I still can't get over those extra lights being drilled into the bumper (at least what it looks like). lol

Appreciate you posting them, Bonn, but I'm frankly baffled by these comments ^^^. I'd actually choose to suffer through Shmee rather than this guy. I couldn't make it through more than a few minutes of either video. Absolutely brutal. Different strokes for different folks, I guess.

Maybe one day I'll rent one there, or do one of the Porsche road trips.
Yes, this is my plan, as well. Rent a 911, do the factory tour, drive all the great roads, etc. One of my buddies is doing this with his wife and boy this spring. I'm envious. ED is surely awesome, but I'd also stress too much about my new car.

Anyone else on the east coast going stir crazy with their Carrera T sitting indoors? I got RAS so I can’t fit the 19” snow tire/wheels. Do I splurge for the 20” snow wheels/tires?

Got my T out today for a little break in driving and an impromptu Porsche gathering! I love this thing! Will post some impressions later in the week, but I can tell you now that I am in love with every single option and am SO glad that I sprung for many of the really expensive ones - PCCB, RAS, 18-ways, Burmester, LED headlights are all so worth it!

YES...re: tires. I put the winters on my stock rims as I couldn't find an affordable winter set in time.

Car wash day today:

I guess so. Because Shmee actually annoys the hell out of me. Seems like he's yelling all the time. And I could do without him turning the camera on himself. Way too close for my taste.

Good thing about doing it this way is that you can pick the time of year and when and where to drive (countries etc).
Envy you right now.
