Collected today!

So after a 11 month dealer wait, and a 48 year life wait I collected one of my dream cars today
 
Its replaces a much loved 2019 Aston Martin Vantage and is my only second ever Porsche, having bought a Boxster S back in 2001. Having been a through nearly every Audi RS product in the last 15 years, with the most recent being a 2020 RS6 its certainly a different experience. 
 
Crayon Turbo S, and I've had it Satin PPF'd and a couple of decals, which while may not be to everyone's taste, I personally think make it look slightly different and suit the color.
 
Great to finally get it, and first impressions are unbelievable. Now ill spend the next 2 days reading the manual and getting to grips with it!

Well done, Simon.
Great you've picked it today after 48 years! I like the decals as it adds something a bit special to the mix.
Looking forward to seeing it in the flesh - maybe on a Club outing sometime.
Let us have you first impressions. Mine are it is stiff! 
 
Regards,

First impressions. Well its quick to say the least, breathtakingly quick, and the the handling seems so planted. Although I'm taking it easy at the moment, it feels like its constantly straining at the leash and ready to go. Id actually go as far to say its insanely quick......
 
Fairly easy to get a comfy driving position in, and while I agree with you Clive the ride is firm, my Wife thinks its much quieter and smoother than the outgoing Aston Martin. Build quality seems good and well screwed together and copes well with the firmness of the suspension
 
Few niggles. The washer jets are rubbish and don't seem to hit the screen that well. The exhaust sound while OK, is somewhat subdued until it is let loose, which while fine again is a little less noise that I thought. Oh and unless I'm missing it, its a bit annoying that Apple Carplay does not seem to take up all the center screen and I'm forced to have some widgets to the side of it regardless

Glad you're enjoying the car - looks great.
 
As far as the CarPlay screen goes, IIRC you should be able to find an arrow on the left hand side of the screen where the widgets are, and a tap should remove them
