    As discussed, we picked up the GT3 on Friday. I spent the rest of the weekend pretty much as a silent passenger in the thing, dumbfounded, jaw agape, enjoying every last minute of the drive immensely. I never had the occasion to ride in the 996 GT3, which I am sure is another fantastic car, but the 997 blew me away. It helped that the driver/owner is an ex BMW Club Racer and Grand Am driver, and he was very careful to let the tires warm up before he felt comfortable really letting it loose on a back road, but he had no problem putting his leg down to tear through the gears once we hit the highway.

    The thing is viciously fast, and razor sharp in all aspects of driving characteristics. I love the NA power delivery, and the exhaust note is absolute perfection right from the factory. I'll be honest - It took me a minute to warm up to the interior, but by the end of the weekend I was just as smitten by the suede/alcantera/microfiber treatment as I was with the rest of the car. The car is perfect. If I had to find something to criticize it would be that low black front valence that was absolutely trashed from normal driving by the end of the weekend, but it's just a $150 piece so I suspect that he'll be keeping one or two onhand for replacement at will. :big grin:

    12 MB Video

    The video is horrible. There was so much wind noise on the highway/rolling shots that I had to layer an MP3 over it, and I was having real problems with my editing machine and as a result it is nowhere near as polished as I would have liked - The transitions are wacky, and the ending is far too abrupt, but I ended up giving up and moving on to the pics:

    Only $150 adds up quick when you trashed it in a couple days, or you could just be more careful. :mamoru:

    It is an expense that will never register as significant to the owner.

    The car was properly broken in. A doctor traded the car in with 1800 miles on it because it was too raw for him. He got his 997 twin turbo, and everybody won. :bigthumb:

    As for the faggot thing, well, this guy has no problem pulling Top Shelf females, so your worthless incendiary trolling notwithstanding, sorry man, you are wrong again. :rofl:

    Shit. That's tonight. I totally forgot. I have to call Jess and make sure she's still down. We're redoing the floors in the house so operation Move Shit Out is in full effect. :sad2:
