After finally seeing a White 'S' with 21's from the guy who posted today, I have to say I'am finally EXCITED AGAIN... I lost my excitement over the last cpl weeks since its taking so darn long. I won't get my White on Red 'S' until mid July, but this pic gave me hope! Considering mine will be even LOWER since I put Air Susp. on it. It looks so nice without AS and with Grey lower skirts/bumpers! This makes it even more exciting since I will paint ALL grey areas WHITE. I can't wait to see how it comes out!! Photoshop anyone?!

Picked up S late Friday. Reading the forums and waiting since December made me think expectations too high. Like a few mentioned in recent posts...it exceeds expectations for my first Porsche. I targeted $60K, ended up at $62K. Optioned Prem. plus, LCA, asst. comfort options, Infotainment pkg, 18-way. Passed on the suspension options (the "must-haves"), & hoped Porsche did their homework on the base steel. Ordered the gloss black rails/trim, but it showed up without. Wife likes it better, so I'm OK w/that. So far, my impressions:
* It's more refined than I expected. Solid, really quiet, and the steel (IMO) is fantastic. Compliant plus handling :)
* The PDK is a magic transmission.
* Locked before I found out about the smoker pkg and 3-zone. I would still order 3-zone, but I like the iPhone holder.
* Used 303 Aerospace on black (Lava?) blade & lower panels...gave it nice, dark satin finish.
* Cold engine start-up provides fantastic sound..quiets down after 30 sec.
* Engine seems really strong...look forward to 1,000 miles.
* CDR plus has better sound than I expected. More than adequate for my old ears. I grew up in 60's, 70's...wonder I can hear at all after the Stones & 3 Dog Night, etc.
* 4 pt. running lights really bright...look great. The led bars that EVERYONE now uses are getting old...ours are unique!
* The comfort lighting package is way cool at night. And it is adjustable. Best option value ($325!) IMO. Love it.
* Engine shut-off defaults to last setting...don't have to select every time. :)
* 560 pages of manuals...I'm on pg. 153. There are too many lawyers. (If you read this, Larry, I'm not talking about you).
* Love the white/Luxor combination. And pretty much everything else about this car. Even the undercarriage speaks of good design...look under the car when you get it. Probably one reason it's so quiet.
* I set the speed warning...had to. As many have mentioned, 85 feels like 60.
* 18-ways a little snug. Wife loves them...I needed to lose some weight anyway.
* A few photos should follow. If not, I'll try to figure out later.
* Thanks to all in this forum...you made the last 20 weeks bearable!
Note...
(apparently drag & drop doesn't work for photos...oh well...how do I attach jpegs??)

Anyone has tried to see if you are able to turn both the 4 Point LED and the LED bar day time running light in the bottom ON at the same time?

Hmm. OK.. Us Aussies still speculating that ONLY bi-xenons are required to give us the 4 point DRLs.
I hope you are right, it doesn't make sense for you not to get the 4 point DRL's especially since Porsche doesn't specify anywhere how to get em.
In Canada, we now know that the Bi-Xenons will give you the DRL's, hope Porsche keeps it the same in Australia too!
