My New Brilliant Blue GTS

I picked up my GTS about 10 days ago. The photos are not great - but give an idea of the color and trim. As opposed to many others who wanted a blacked-out Q ship, I wanted a little bling and I think the chrome package works well with the Brilliant Blue.

The car she is a monster! But really well behaved and totally able to be a daily driver. For those who are thinking that the ride is too stiff, may I suggest adjusting the tire pressures. Mine came with highly inflated pressures. I'm not going up the salt flats for a high speed run or time trialing it (much less wheel to wheel racing) where I would need super stiff side walls) and the lessened pressure helped. As noted by Vic this issue is partially one of perception given the quality of the roads one drives it on - and ones own background and expectations.

I have had no problems so far so perhaps the problems reported earlier by a few have been resolved.

BTW, for those considering a special order, I ordered mine in mid-August and it was finally at the dealership on January 13. It was a full five months.

So John....after 10 months, are you still in love with it? Our dealer got one in of this color and I am sorely tempted to take it off their hands.

Dynamic plus package?

Love the color! Looking at a similar specd car. Did you get the dynamic plus pkg? Since I won't track it thinking to skip it. Your thoughts?

I haven't driven one without it. But I know that with it, the handling is terrific as the heavy bits, transmission and engine are weighted dynamically to go with the shift in weight in cornering.
