Happy Holidays to all, So I've been in a family of bmws once we were in position to reap the benefits of German cars. Being born and raised in New York City a car wasn't a necessity it was more of and luxury especially at my age. My personal first car was a bmw 2014 435i coupe "manual". I was excited until that m4 came out a few months later being that from history its usually a year bare minimum before one gets rolled out. I felt the electric steering was terrible compared to my brothers 328xi manual I drove in 2008. Shortly after I purchased that car my dad purchased a 2014 Boxster "manual" 6 cylinder aspirated for those who aren't familiar, Once I drove his car I no longer wanted my car haha. I decided to wait for the future of the Boxster though I always preferred the cayman. I took a trip to Porsche Atlanta driving experience center and drove a cayman GTS PDK for the first time on track and immediately fell in love with the 718 line. I then purchase a 2017 718 Boxster of course manual haha, PDK owners I don't think I any less of your car especially that on paper its known to be "better" I just love the feel of switching gears my self and not having the computer do majority of the work. In closing my pics are as followed and I would like to get a few mods and open to ALL opinions.

Finally decided to find a forum dedicated to Cayman. I ordered a CGTS/manual late OCT '21 that's due late MAY '22. Will be my first Porsche and my 1st ever new car. Hope it's as much fun as my '03 SL55 AMG and '91 NSX are ! Although I KNOW it will NOT be a much fun as my FJR1300 !! I still have a few days to consider changes to my build thus I may have a few questions going forward. From what I've seen thus far I'm sure some of you will have "good" advice to offer !

Welcome to the Forum and our madness. Another beauty enters the fold. My best friend/atty. lives in your neck of the woods. He had a foot of the white stuff covering an unplowed road. "Going nowhere" says he....

Be careful with your new baby. Spring isn't that far away....

Sweet new steed that looks ready to romp...may she bring you unlimited miles of smiles! We look forward to sunny pics, along with your observations and comparisons of your first Porsche to any of your previous sporty steeds.

Sad to hear the PEC delivery schedule was so booked that you abandoned....three months also wouldn't work for me (our GTS build freezes on Feb 9 and we optioned PEC delivery). Glad that hasn't dampened your enthusiasm. Did you option PEC delivery before your car was built and delivered and, if so, how was the change handled after your freeze date.
  • When you were informed there would be a 12 week wait, were you given the choice of having your car delivered directly to your dealer?
  • Were you required to pay for alternate transportation to your dealer?
  • Was the PEC cost refunded or removed from your purchase price?
Any other nuances you can share would be quite helpful to those of us also planing on an upcoming PEC delivery.

Welcome to the forum and thank you in advance for you insight.
