    Hey Alan--are you getting a lot of seat time with your new S? How do you find it now that you have had it for while?

    Alan--got out today for a short drive. The 718 keeps impressing me. It is just so much fun to drive and keeps a permanent smile on my face. It is really hard to keep it under 4500rpm--it just wants to go. Hopefully you will get your car this weekend. If I remember-- you are getting the S? Man are you going to have fun! ha ha I am hoping to get out this weekend for some more top down driving. Unfortunately, I am going to have some surgery that will lay me up for about a month so I am trying to get in as much driving as I can.

    Good luck with those hard liners over on Planet 9! I can tell you that when I was looking to get a Boxster I drove a 981 and 718 back to back--the 718 was the superior car. I will admit that I was surprised based on everything I had read. It was just flat out more fun to drive. Keep me posted on your delivery.

    Jeff

    This is going to be a long week! I wish I could get to the dealer before Saturday but I just have too much going on this week.

    Your dealer should have the name of the ship your car is on. If indeed your car is on the Splendid Ace I would say an April 4-7 delivery is very likely, and Davisville port seems to move things along fairly well. It won't be long now--but I feel your pain!! ha ha

    Hello Alan--my car is due at the dealer any day. My SA has tentatively scheduled me to pick it up on April 1st. I heard from him on Monday and he told me the car had been released for transport from the port and he expected to see it at the dealer late this week. The car is scheduled to have Xpel clear bra installed next Tuesday.

    I am in Bloomsburg and there is still snow on the ground in places. I do see that it is supposed to warm up a bit next week but still not very good top down weather.

    It is really hard to be patient. My experience with Davisville is that cars seem to move fairly quickly out that port. Not sure where your car is heading but I would suspect if it came in on the 23rd it will be on its way shortly to your dealer. My Boxster is coming to Sun Motors in Mechanicsburg PA--I plan to post pictures once delivered. Keep me posted on your progress and the big day!

    Best,

    Jeff (Gallatin)
