I bought a 4S in June last year and really enjoyed it..
But had some repeat tech issues with log in and multiple return trips to the dealer

Rather than give up decided to double down and today collected a new Volcano Grey Turbo S with the satin aurum wheels (new profile pic) and HUD

Will post some more pictures tomorrow but first impression is it looks like tech hardware and software has improved

Congrats! I think 4S -> Turbo is a nice upgrade.

Can you elaborate what parts feel improved? Is the PCM more responsive?

Thanks , so far

1. PCM does feel snappier, no circle of death , loads fast
2. More hardware but wireless charging is cool
3. Home Screen layout looks different with an extra column on left (will post picture tomorrow as could be option I didn’t know about previously)
4. HUD is much further away than I expected (field of view without configuring shows the screens at the end of the bonnet almost)
5. Will add more tomorrow after longer usage

Wow! They don't sell that many new 911s a year!

Looking forward to my own Neptune Blue collection shortly. Did you ask about the fast charger they have there – is it something "we" can use, I wonder? I live 1 stop down on the M50 so its actually my nearest really fast charger.

They had 50 cars delivered last week including at least 20 Taycan’s, amazing to see so many new ones together today !

You can use that fast charger anytime they are open and get a free coffee while you wait :)
Great option to go 20-80% in 25 mins

I took this vid showing all the displays including HUD
Thank you very much. A lot of people were not liking the looks of the HUD before it actually came out, but I think it looks good in reality. My 2021 arrives in Houston in 2 weeks, and I too have the HUD.

Thanks for the video. Enjoy the car, it looks great.

I think you will like it .. allows you to see literally every dash configuration

Can you see it if you use polarized sunglasses? That is the problem I had with HUDs in other cars and California is usually sunny so it is a problem here.

I don’t have polarised sunglasses so not sure . Works well with normal glasses ?
