Hence no more updates or pictures...
Yeah sometimes tracking a brand new unfamiliar car isn't a good idea.

Hopefully its not the case though.

We are indeed alive, not dead, not in jail, and not being held hostage.

Gentlemen sorry about the delay in responses, coming back has resulted in crazy hours at work at trying to catch up on the sleep we didn't get while enjoying the car in Europe. I have updated SPA added a couple of small videos, have to make the 3 gig plus files from the gopro smaller before trying to upload. Also I added some pictures in the day 10 spot of the car while on the hoist. We were not able to take video at Nurburg, found out it was a big no no, to bad I was not aware of until we got there.

I will be updating the Nurburgring post in the next couple nights and hope to get more video up.

The car is awesome and I cant wait till it gets here.

Glad you enjoyed the track that much! But i am more pleased with the fact you enjoyed the car even more and it can match up against your heavily modified Subaru STI
The sound in the movies is really disapointing. You almost hear anything

Great update. Thanks.

Couple of questions.

Are you happy with your color choice?
Did you see VO in person before ordering it?

Cheers

Mark.

I am extremely happy that I went with the VO.

I originally wanted the car in white, but after seeing the VO at the Detroit autoshow I changed my mind. The VO is a nice colour that does really change with the lighting around it. Very few internet pics really show the true range on the paint. An orange car may not be for everyone but it I am happy I ultimately went that way.

The exhaust is hard to capture especially with the point and shoot that was used in those vids. A really good representation is the sound from that video in Monaco. Deep and throaty.

I hadn't seen it but it definitely sounds good! Maybe it's the air in Monaco

I can't even explain how great it sounded when driving through tunnels; especially the ones that were just carved into rock with no additional concrete lining. The note of the exhaust got better after the first 6-800 miles. Diving it as much as we did allowed us to notice the difference as it happened over 2 days

Here's another video of your precious toy, MNavigator! Shot at the same time as Shmee150's video, but from the other side of the road

just noticed the photo with the white 3series with IL licence plates in front of the liebherr compound
that is our tirol - usually the first thing you will see is cops giving speeding tickets

but i would not have bought a vignette for the autobahn - next time take the small roads through our valleys

since they put up a 100kmh speed limit on our autobahn and people go 95 in the fast lane i dont drive there anymore
