My Gentian Blue Turbo has finally made it to Stavanger, Norway, just in time before everything in Europe is shut down. It will spend the next week with my favorite detailer https://www.ruyters.no/

In the pictures it has just been properly washed after the transport and it looks beautiful. However, it's amazing how many swirls and spider webs they manage to create during production. But it's always the same when getting a new car. A one stage polishing will take care of that. Then a coat of Modesta BC-04, curing, a coat of BC-05, final curing, then it's ready for action.

Will come back with more pics when it's good and ready, and then hopefully some pics from driving on the Norwegian mountain roads will follow:)

Congrats. Gorgeous car and great pictures, in the pictures had you already waxed it? Also what do you recommend for the side skirt to protect and make them black? Enjoy, enjoy and then report back.

Have fun on the bendy narrow road on the south west coast;), while I will keep twiddling my thumbs for an indefinite time:rolleyes:

No, in the pictures it's raw, straight from the factory. Since I was going for a proper 2 layer Modesta ceramic coating my dealership only did a technical check on the car and then charged it up before they took it over to my detailer. I am eager to take ownership of the car but I got a reservation 3 years ago, ordered it in September last year, so I can wait a couple days more:)

I will, the first real road trip in the mountains will be when they open Suleskard and the serpentine road down to Lysebotn:)

It's an amazing trip. Drove there 2yrs ago:like:. I had planned to drive Trollstigen and Atlanterhavsveien as my first trip, this spring. Hopefully, I can make it before next winter:rolleyes:

Nice car @Rollep ! The colour is very nice but so different to what I saw at the dealer!

You say that the swirls etc are bad but how was it with Orange Peel effect in the pain’t? The dealers often put on some “”wax”” that seems to have fillers in them, and once it is washed off, the paint works shows up terrible?

Nice to see the work that the detailed has done before.

All the best once you collect the car!,

PS some nice winter pictures and that decent road looks awesome!

There is no Orange Peel, the paint quality is very good, just like the other Porsche cars I have owned.

The swirls are not bad and will be easily removed by the polishing that's done prior to applying the ceramic coating.

Are you seeing any of these panel gaps people are talking about?

The interior is Olea Club Leather in Basalt Black. The lighting in the pictures makes it look a bit greyish, it is actually more black in real life.

No, I checked the whole car and it looked fine to me. Symmetrical, not too tight, not too much gap.
