New Sky Owner, Long Island

Hey everyone,

Just had my 2008 Redline delivered this morning, and spent the whole day cruising around Long Island! Just wanted to say hi, and I look forward to taking advantage of everyone's expertise. I'm sure I'll have some questions, but I can't think of any right now, too busy smiling...

Welcome to the forum, Kappa ownership, and... the smile club.
Yes it is true, your face muscles will react this way... after driving around all day. Happens to the best of us.

Getting to know your specific car in it's current state. 08 Redline. Color and mileage? History. Photos when you can.
There are many current subjects here on the forum for your review and enjoyment.
The search feature can be used to find past subjects on problems/solutions from our owners.

Your initial reaction and the masses out there reaction to it when driving around all day.
Careful with bumper huggers,( objects are closer than they appear) or none attentive drivers,
as in some cases they can not " see" your car, like in a parking lot backing out. This car sits below
the sight lines on many a rear view mirrors.

* I drove mine yesterday, and... at one point my rear view mirror was filled the giant chrome grill of the massive
P/U truck, that stayed there, less than a car length away from my bumper, until... I hit the boost and
it became a very small spot fading into the distance in my rear view mirror. CYA.

Low clearance to the front nose. Cupholders... battery, the infamous water pump, tires among other
things our owners converse upon their own experiences with their cars. Lot of info and knowledge here among our owners.

You have chosen wisely. Enjoy the permagrin.

I bought an 08 Redline, Silver Pearl with 35,000 miles from a dealer about 500 miles from Long Island. I purchased it site unseen (lots of photos/videos). I have never done anything like that before. I think part of my jubilation cruising around yesterday was relief that the car was so clean.

Now I need to find some other Sky owners on Long Island.

I bought my Sky from a private seller in Texas sight unseen and had it shipped to Germany. I know the feeling of relief that you got the car you paid for and as described. Enjoy it.
