My Phantom black just arrived on sealed enclosed truck. It is the first in this area-central Ohio USA. When I got to the dealership there was already a crowd around and it was just unloaded withall the protective white covers on it, so I got to go through the unwraping process and document everything-including being with the tech assigned to my car as he set it up from "transport mode". When everything was finished, we took it out for a few miles, then back to shop for the detailing. This will take them today and part of tommorrow, then it goes homw. It has oxygen silver blades and limestome gray leather/Alcantara and six speed. Like everyone else has said-wow. It drives smootha s silk and shift is great already. I will post pictures when I get them done and after clean up. jet

cheers to you and good luck! Mine should arrive on the 27th... filthy dirty from my time with it in Europe.

Make sure the dealership dosen't buff it with a wheel.

Right-we already have an agreement and everyone assigned to it from the mechanic to the detailer. All by hand and home phone numbers--I actually talked and knew everyone before hand and they are "part of the car"-I just have the "papers" and other responsibilities-not to mention the full time use of it! One thing I want to find out as soon as it is made clear from others is how to set it up to be able to turn on the engine bay light (LED), so when this is dertermined by someone , let me and others know. jet

Not 100% sure - I did not go for the engine bay lights.
But, on the dashboard computer, you can put the wipers into service mode, adjust the tone of the parking sensors and turn off the daytime running lights.

It might be that the lights menu includes options for the engine bay lights when fitted.

Go into "Menu", "Set up", "lights" etc etc using the pips on the right hand control stalk.

You can only set the duration the lights stay on,from the menu.

the suspense continues to build...

congrats ! nice choice with the black with oxygen blade. ive got that on order and im particularly interested to see how the limestone grey leather works. i chose black for practical purposes but think limestone is probably the best looking choice. more pics on that please !

hurry ! :D :D

Right-I am enjoying the ride:) Sorry for no pictures yet, as I know how anxious I was/am always to see pictures. I am out most of this week, but will really try to get pictures by this coming weekend or before and post :) By the way, I am really happy with the Limestone Gray / Alcantara interior--perfect and gives the great contrast with black. jet
