I just got back from the dealership a few minutes ago with my new Redline. It's white with red/black interior and a manual transmission.

It gets up and moves pretty decently, you can really hear the turbo and of course feel it. The short throw shifter is about the shortest I've driven. The transmission is pretty notchy but I guess that's just how it is. It's very easy to get first and third mixed up when you're shifting into it from neutral which is rather embarassing coming from someone who's driven a stick for 15 years or so. I wish there was a bit more throttle feel as I never liked downshifting without at least partially rev matching just to take it easy on the transmission.

It's a very nice car overall and I'll give more impressions of it when I get more miles on it.

My camera decided to give it up after a total of 5 pictures even though I charged the battery beforehand so I will upload a couple and then once I get it running again tomorrow I'll post more if you guys have any requests.

Yet another "looker"

What a great looking car. Love my (wife's) red, but I'm liking your white too.

"If that car doesn't turn heads, they must be dead."

Enjoy, R1chy

Thanks for the compliments guys. I'll try to get some better pictures up tomorrow.

My car already influenced someone else's decision at the dealership. They asked me a bunch of questions and ran over and put down a deposit for the exact same combo as my car while I was paying. It looks really sharp in person.

I just looked outside and noticed that it's raining now and I wasn't able to get my car in the garage before it got all wet :( I guess I'll have to sell my car now :(
