Pic #1 is kind of awesome with the tree and cloud reflection on the hood.

Twin? Um, yeah. Because it is the best color/wheel combo that exists.

BeerGuy, I'd be happy to park next to you.

Hey DD, have they given you or released pricing on 2015s yet.
I'm curious to see how the new packaging affects the price.

I am hoping next week when I work out all the other details like opti-coat , tinting car cover, battery tender

It also depends on if the car arrives in Newark in August or September I think

congrats on the beautiful config. You have exactly the car I wanted.....but I had to settle (no red calipers....unnecessary cold weather package...etc.) because i needed the car by a certain date.

They are hard to find. My dealership had to get it trucked in from the west coast. I did have another dealership that had a similar car and offered to swap out the calipers for me so maybe you can negotiate that. There were also a few with Proteo's but they said it would be cost prohibitive to swap the rims on a car so swapping calipers was the better way to go. Cold Weather package was not one of my requirements either. It gets cold here in winter but I know I'm not goign to be sitting in the bakc seat. :)

EDIT: I just saw your location. My dealership found the car in Redwood City (which also happens to be where my company is based).

****! i bought it from the redwood city dealership...how annoying. they said they didn't have any with the specs i wanted...and that i would have to order a 2015...and it wouldn't be available until oct/nov. i also asked about swapping calipers and they said it was too time consuming and difficult to do (they had done it for another customer years ago on a diff car).

in CA it rarely gets cold....so never understood why this dealership had the cold weather package.

at the end of the day, i still enjoy my car....but hated the purchasing experience. multiple dealerships in the Bay Area were non-responsive and just plain lazy.

Not sure how it works but my dealership said the car was not assigned to any specific dealerships inventory which is why they were able to claim it in the system.

Style loves company. Parked in an empty part of the lot and when I came back out, 911 parked next to me.
