Just landed, my new 550 GT

I love this car, just arrived at the dealer and I bought it. The only missing packages were the active cruise control and rear climate control. I wonder if the rear climate control would have made much of a difference?

Love this car!

Enjoy your honeymoon. I have the same colour as yours. The colour is fantastic as it will become purple under strong sunlight!

I love the color too, it's really a nice deep shade of grey/purple. Love the V8, wish I would have gotten the rear climate control but I couldn't find it on any dealer lots GT.

Overall, super awesome car, love the design in every way.

Nice color choice. I was debating between that grey and the blue my wife convinced me to decide on (which I am very happy with).

How does the COMFORT mode feel compared to NORMAL? Is it significantly more comfortable? My GT does not have a COMFORT mode.

That Blue is beautiful, the grey seems to hide the front Cameras in the front bumper which I liked. The Comfort Mode is best defined as "saucy" super smooth, it's like you're riding on air -- or like a cruise ship in water. I put it in normal mode most of the time and in sport mode when Im crossing over the canyons. Love the dynamic suspension, Im glad I got it. The only missing option that I wanted was the rear climate control but I couldn't find it anywhere and didn't want to wait 8 weeks for the order to come in.

Welcome to the outlaws Just kidding the GT is a unique vehicle that one can appreciate more and more each day. I don't know about you guys but my area is becoming saturated with F10 sedans. The strange thing about it is that all of a sudden I am seeing a bunch of 2011 528 loaners around. Now back to the GT you wont see yourself coming and going alot. That's a good thing in my book. With regards to the rear-climate I had to have it be because of my soon to be 9 month old. Its worth it, but I'm sure the standard HVAC is quite capable as well.

BTW: can't go wrong with Dark Graphite Metalic aka Sophisto Gray

Congrats on your purchase
