The Eagle has landed!

..Just in time for winter here in the Northeast.

Of course, I could've waited and ordered exactly what I wanted (full alcantara and other touches, carbon airbrake, etc) but the discontinued polished calipers were a must have, in addition to Volcano Red. I do like the saddle leather, however. Just enough, not too much. One interesting item left out of the new 2016 "Enhanced Technology Package" which, from what I've seen on every other '16 sticker, all include electric steering wheel, was NOT on this car (and not on sticker either). Crazy!!

Enjoy the pics while I just make many trips to the garage in disbelief and pleasure that I actually own this car now.

Awesome! My VR spider should be here in a week. I have that color on the interior of my 997tt, and decided to go black this time. Saddle looks amazing with the VR though.

Yay, congrats man. I'm in NY, and as long as you let the wheels get warmed up, and dont take her into the snow, you can totally daily drive it all through winter. Well, at least I do.

Hoping you have many many happy miles!

No more polished calipers, interesting. Both my MP4-12C coupe and 650S Spider has them and I quite like them
