    Well, I finally got to bring my beauty home today. Weather has been mucky so she is a tad ugly right now but that will be corrected this weekend. Received with 15 miles on the odometer, not bad for traveling 2000 miles across the ocean to Germany.

    The only obvious defects was the splitter and the foam seal on the passenger side by the hood hinge. Apparently some genius took the splitter guards off and both sides of the splitter have been drug on the ramps loading or unloading it. I put in the claim for a new splitter and replacement of the foam seal then drove 20 miles to customs to get it cleared for US forces in Europe. 20 miles back the other way and a few more just tooling around and I've completed the 0-100 mile break in so now I can do some mild romping. Love the supercharger whine. Definitely going to be difficult to keep my lead foot off the accelerator.

    Once I have her cleaned up I will post some pics. I've already started adding the dress up goodies that have been sitting in my living room for nearly 4 months.

    Congrats on picking her up. I should be getting my baby in about a week. The weather is getting better around my parts, but that staying constant remains to be seen. I will definitely check for damages when I pick her up....have fun out there.

    PCP, M6, Satin Hood, Sun roof.

    I've added:

    Razors Edge front and rear 2 point shock tower braces in PCP
    Mopar mud flaps/stone guards
    Power Stop Z23 pads front and rear
    Speed Logix bright park brake and dead pedal cover
    Dash Designs dash cover
    Weathertech floor and trunk mats.

    Took her out for a ride on the autobahn (A9 to A3 to A6) yesterday. All I can say is those fast closers from behind (Johnny knows what I'm talking about) are no longer an issue. Can't wait to get the remaining 200 break in miles completed. Who knows, that just may happen today.

    It must be a absolute thrill and rush to drive on the autobahn. My god this machine opened up on a open road. Have mercy

    That strut tower brace is not easy to install by yourself. I also put the PCP vinyl decals on the coil covers.

    This was way easier to do by myself. The kit does not come with the christmas tree fasteners so I am waiting on them to arrive so I can finish the install. Weather Tech trunk mat also installed.

    My ride finally came in to Germany on Saint Patty's Day. My job is brutal so I haven't had a lot of time to take pictures, however the Autobahn is awesome! I will be making some "movies" soon with my GoPro....it is nice to drive a car, at speed, and not have anyone even close to overtaking you for the most part. However.....suspension upgrades are a must. I will be buying the strut tower braces too. I like your install PlumbCrazy....Johnny's is nice too

    Best Saint Patty's gift ever....my Sublime Green Cat on the Green Day! Take care everyone as I am not trying to highjack this thread...I'll make my own soon enough.
