Picked it up from the garage this afternoon............took it easy on the way home so cant comment much on handling power etc................but it feels lovely.........really refined.

Going to give the user manual a good read tonight.

I can honestly say that it looks much better in the flesh, pictures dont really do it justice.

Let the stone chipping commence!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Look very clean! Have to say, of all the 9th Gen colours White is my fav!!

You tempted to get the front end clear vynil wrapped for protection?

Any modifications planned?

I might go for the rear diffuser accessory, I think it makes the car look alot nicer from the rear.

Have seen a few 9th Gens lately and haven't been impressed tbh, but this looks lovely.

Health to drive mate

I must admit i did cheat a little bit as i didnt post any pics of the car from its worst angles.

The bit that i think puts most people off is the bulbous front bumper......see red arrow.

It just seems to knock the whole design balance off from certain angles and makes the car look a bit odd.

Its as though the perspective is being distored or stretched or something.
