:banana: well not much to say except it's finally arrived! :banana:

However upon delivery it spent 3 hours in the workshop because of a rear spoiler error message :( (however it works just fine) Porsche are working on the coding.... The car drives fantastic!! :banana:

She's gorgeous, mate! But they put the steering wheel on the bloody wrong side!

Thanks! The handbrake sounds loud & clicky when raising it, but other than that I'm completely stoked. The new DFI definitely has a deeper growl to it, sorry about the grainy images I'll be taking higher quality photo's this weekend.

Congrats. Hopefully Porsche can also get that steering wheel put back on the correct side. J/K.

The car feels tight & precise, with tones of grip driving up twisty hill climbs, I think the LSD has a lot to do with this, however I can't hear the LSD engaging, must be a quiet LSD. It came with Michelin PS2's which I'm happy with & the DFI engine has a deep throaty sound, not sure why you would want to go aftermarket exhaust, well for street anyway.

Cool. I hope I get PS2s too. They are better than Contis. I was content with the stock exhaust...for 6 months, but the sound is soooo much better and power is better with the exhaust mod. In stock form it tends to sound like a leaf blower :( .

I suspect the DFI will be slower than my tuned 06 so alas Im going to go down the modification slippery slope again, sooner rather than later. What the heck! :)

I'll be looking forward to comparing the 2 different cars later. There are not many of us owners upgrading from the pre-DFI to the DFI version.

Enjoy!

+1 on the seats man. Congrats! Any other mods planned? haha!
At $186,000 just to drive it out the showroom, I think I'm at ease with mods for the time being. :(
