Congrats!

How much did you end up paying for it and what other sports cars were you looking at before deciding to get the 718?

Hi

I was looking for Mercedes AMG SLC 43 Roadster// BMW 235i Cabriolet // AUdit TT RS cabriolet
But when I drove the 718 S, I have so impressed that the choice was done just after the ride with the 718S

total price is almost with Options 90k€:
here is the list:

Out of those the 718 definitely reigns king, and i'm not just saying that because i'm a Porsche guy. I mean that enough to the point i'm looking forward to what the Audi R6 will be like. Maybe it will be on your radar once you've had enough of the 718. But of course that depends on what you want in a vehicle.

Hi

I guess you are speaking about the R8, which is a different concept. We cannot compare with the RS6 which is a sportvan car.
I drove an Audi R8, and yes It is an amazing car! we can compare with a Porsche 911 but not with a 718 'on my point a view)
On Audi you can always see the engine, that pleasure is not available anymore neither on 911 neither on 718...

Just picked up my 718 from dealer this Saturday. I am afraid to drive it until I can get xpel clear bra . Anybody here has experience with it. Sounds like a worthwhile investment to preserve car.. What do you guys think?

I have a jet black metallic Boxster and had XPEL Ultimate installed on the entire front end - hood, fenders, bumper & side mirrors. It's really invisible and adds a lot of protection. If the XPEL material gets dinged, apparently you can heat it and it heals. I drove my for a week before it was installed but was _really_ careful. I think it's worth it. It took about 4 hours to do the full installation.
