:)OK, with MANY months of research; tons on this website, (decided on 2005 black GranSport)....then.... searching for that "perfect" deal (7000 mile, perfect car from California with every option I desired)....I paid for this car (sight unseen except pictures and a salesman's description- whose life I threatened should he stear me wrong, 2 months ago...(was at San Deigo MF for an auto door lock issue)...had the car shipped in a covered car carrier...dilivery was delayed due to shipping logistical effeciencies.....
I FINALLY GOT THE CAR TODAY!!!! :D:D:D

I put at leats 75 miles on it...getting used to the paddle shift, etc (was a bit stressed as many people in Houston are evacuating because of a looming hurricane (Ike). I LOVE THIS CAR.


Everything seems to work fine. The car is flawless. The clutch actually works!


At this point, I am a happy camper. I've had BMW's (loved the M Roadster-great value), Porsches, Mercedes (even a 1974 SD455 Trans Am) and ya know what, this car rocks.


Just had to "vent"...hopefully I won't be frusturated too quickly as I have an "issue" or two.....

Thanks guys...you have no idea how influencial you were to my decision.

Eddie

I almost bought that GS (at least I think it's the same car) before I got mine. The funny thing is that I ended up buying a car in Texas! Just like you, it was at the San Antonio MF and I bought it without seeing it in person.

Congrats!!

You've got the fastest color. Ask BigFoot why!:D

Hello,

Yes, a bit psyched...day one.

Yes, the hotel is the Burg al Arab UAE...awesome place; I highly recommend it.


The only thing I didn't anticipate was....no owners manual. I'm sending an email tonight to the seller in California but if they cannot come up with one; do you guys know where one can be aquired?

I'll get some pictures on soon.

I think there is a user here who is from Denver or CS....we have a ski place in Salida (Monarch)...maybe we can get together..

Thanks, Eddie
