That's a cool video! You should smile more though Floor Floor Floor 911 coffee woman was loving the limelight!

46 sleeps till I collect mine, can't wait it's one thing the OPC's do well thumbsup As you say the OPC's aren't always that crazy on prices and that two year warranty and prep is a big bonus.



I bet you can't get any sleeps in between! I know I struggled Razz

I made up for the grin while i was driving home Thumb

Just drive it and enjoy it, forget the Youtube career.


Appreciate the sentiment only wanted to do a video for the fun of it and to show you guys. Didn't have a career in mind but will keep trying.

Congratulations, nice looking car and the video wasn't too bad either!

I would definitely pay extra next time for the OPC experience. Can't believe you let the salesman pull the cover off though rather than do it yourself. Dont know

Thanks Nigel, Yea I should have done looking back... but is a bit like unwrapping a X'mas present when you already know what you are getting if that makes sense.

Nice video and lovely car. Congrats Thumb


I don't believe you can compare the OP's video of his pick up to the videos by MrJWW......that guy is so false and condescending it's hard to stomach ...."it's insane" is his mantra ....turns my stomach ..his GT3 pick up is case in point ...and although he professed to be aPorscheguy ...I don't believe it , just a money man on the make ...narcisstic and false .....wouldn't be my cars n coffee kind of guy for sure ....just my opinion though .....Seen thru glass is no better ....!

The OP here is genuinely over the moon and looks to be an ordinary guy achieving his dream ...that's my kind of video ....

Enjoy Stephen...We have all ( most of us ) felt that way at our first one .....

Problem is ....it's not going to be your last !!!

Well done mate!!!

That's a bit hash dude .......I hope it was a bit tongue in cheek .....

Better this kind of video than those of Shmee/ MasterJWW/ Seenthru Glass/ and friends .....you guys watching their YT antics are paying for their cars ....

At least this lad was genuinely pleased at the whole affair ....I didn't detect any false emotions and narcissism as in the other referred to vid makers ...

But still OP ....enjoy your car like it was meant to be ......

C2S was my first 911 .....not my first Porsche , and it took me a while to take the first step ....it's a slippery slope and it just doesn't stop ....

Enjoy ...

Thanks Rob, the music is similar to the dealer selection screen in gran turismo on the playstation 1...

Yes it does sound like lift music...is a little cheesy Mr. Green

It is a slippery slope...just got this car and I started looking at Short shifter, paint protection, and ceramic coatings, PCM update etc...

None of it is cheap.. in addition to car tax and insurance as I am using this as a weekend car....

I tend to keep my cars tho I have an accord type r which is my main car... after 10 yrs of ownership is still reliable.... Drinks a bit more oil than it used to tho... Grin

Great choice of wheels too! Very Happy

OPC looked like West London branch?

Congrats Thumb


I really like the carrera sport ones as well, but they are growing on me !


I can highly recommend these if you enjoy your detailing!

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Auto-Finesse-Woolly-Trio-Wheel-Brushes-/352169224182?hash=item51feebe7f6


I love detailing have bought these already... looks great for cleaning the wheels due to the small spaces between the spokes.

Reading it back it may be a tad harsh, in fairness the video was alright other than the bit to camera at the start which was a bit Mr JWW which i hate.

For the record Schmee and all the other's of that ilk make me nauseous as well.

Lovely car though and as i said enjoy driving it.

You seem remarkably well informed considering you don’t like them. Very Happy

I don’t disagree with your opinion of them. The whole “click bait” scene on YouTube is tiresome. I only watch the videos when they feature a car I like...so once in a blue moon effectively.
