Hi all - First, got a lot of helpful information from other members when I was going through my purchase decision so thank you all for the input.

Got my GT Silver on the last day of Feb. and wanted to say hi to the community ;) Wanted a manual Miami Blue with sport chrono and was about to order one, but this one has been sitting in the dealership with everything checked except for the color. With a bit of negotiation on MSRP I made the purchase and the car is currently being wrapped in Sky Blue (between Miami blue and 911's gulf blue), will certainly post pics once it's done.

One minor issue with mine is the moisture in the taillight. Saw it on the day I picked up the car but the dealership said it's normal (as they always do >:D). Drove home and it stays after a few days so will be dropping off to get the lights replaced free of charge. The car drives great and am breaking in now, will get my first oil change once I hit 1000 miles (another thing that the sales rep at the dealership will tell you no you don't need to but a good service tech. will acknowledge :D).

I have been modding cars but since this one is a lease and no track duty planned, will not go crazy on it but may do tune and exhaust if any good ones arrive in the market. Drive on guys!

$3200 for full exterior. It's close to the price of ordering Miami Blue but I am gonna spend extra on clean film if I do that so I would end up spending more money.

Went to a reputable wrap shop locally which provides warranty against bubbling for 3 years. I know dealerships around me usually offer that too at a higher price and they end up with the same shops who do the job or hire someone cheap to do so, and they take a cut.

Moisture in head and tail-lights will go away when driven. Air needs to circulate in there. They are designed to ventilate. No need to replace.

Nice whip.

Great looking car, what dealer in NJ did you get car from ?
I'd wait until you have completed the 2000 mile running in before the oil change

Welcome. I'm in Morris County, NJ.

The local NNJR-PCA group here is real nice with a variety of activities. I'm planning on hitting some of their tech sessions plus maybe some of the DE events.

NNJR - Porsche Club of America

As others suggested, the standard break-in is 2000 miles. Mine just passed the 2000 mile mark and I'm not planning a change until it gets around twice that amount. Of course, it never hurts to change the oil, but the large dry-sump combined with the synthetic oil gives you much more flexibility.

Congratulations. The dealer is allowing you to wrap a leased car?

You resurrected and old thread. A wrap can be removed without issue, just as PPF can be installed and removed. Doubt the leasing company cares as long as they get it back the way they issued it.
