You'll love it Peter! It looks way better than in any picture that I have seen.

Yes it was, I could not sleep for a week thinking about how selfish of a move that was and how I whine every time my wife spends $50 bucks. I slept great after day 8........

The car should be at the dealer Monday 3/10, I may run down and check it out and go for a spin, If I do I'll take a camera. Will probably pick it up Friday or Sat.

Ran by and took a few pics..... What else can I say? I took a really short drive from the prep center to the showroom; 100mph came like a tidal wave, unbelievable power, firm ride like the 3. I missed the sound of the GT3 at high rpm's but it did sound pretty good at low rpm and idle. Not much else to say after a 1.5 mile run. (Seats are very sweet)
More to come in the near future, I hope...
