She's here.

Picked up my new CS couple days ago.

Very pleased with the spec, it's everything I was hoping for.

This is my first Porsche and first sports car and I would describe the car as being 'tight' and 'sharp'. I enjoy the look and feel of the interior, it's totally different to my Jeep SRT in every way it should be.

Still playing around with all the buttons and settings. The sound is perfectly amazing to my ears. Though I will try the soundakator disconnect when I can be bothered and will report back.

I'm a happy man.

Whooee, that's a slick looking ride. Your first sports car? Welcome to the club! And yes, "tight and sharp" is a good description,

Jim, on my second Porsche. The first was a 912 in a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away.

Great spec, grey, black alloys and manual. Just how I have mine.

The difference....you live in NZ and I live in the UK, so you have the most amazing driving roads! I'm here at the moment on paternity leave with my wife and two boys. The amount of times I day dreamed I was in my little mean machine and not a Nissan Highlander with 5 suitcases!

Incredible country by the way!

Congratulations! We'll done on opting a manual transmission and 18 way Sport Plus Seats! That is a proper drivers car, in my opinion...
