Default Got mine Oct 3rd!

Flew into Atlanta Wed, and was met at the airport by Sam Ajayi, the GM from Nissan South. He's the most cordial guys you'd ever want to meet. Same goes for the entire staff, including the owner, the svc mgr, master tech, All great people there are very GTR knowlegable. After the requisite (ugh) car orientation and paperwork was signed, I immediately hit the road for IN trying to avoid Atlanta's rush hour traffic. The car performed flawlessly, and is a real rocket sled. Already have over 800 mi on it, and averaged a little better than 20 mpg on the highway at 80.
Love the Ti color. It's not nearly as brown as I initially thought it would be. It's almost seems to have a very slight purple castin certain light. Need to see it better in bright sunlight. Today's very dark and grey. In fact, in the showroom with it's flourescent lighting, I actually thought it was Gun Metallic! The ride is very firm, but reasonably compliant at the same time considering this class of car. The seats very firm but supportive. I could see how some folks of wider upper girth might not love these seat bolsters. Fine for me at 5'8" and 150. Fit and finish very good, no flaws.
This thing handles like an overgrown go kart, I swear. The only time the ride quality annoyed me was going over old, uneven concrete sections of highway. Not so pleasant there. Kinda beat me up a little. Have already seen 125 mph , and have pushed the tach up only to about 4500 rpms (or so), once I got some decent (+500) miles on it. No complaints whatsoever! God willing, 5Zigen cat delete midpipe and SP tune catbacks going on late this wk. Window tint on Mon, and Venture Shield clear bra on Fri.
Coup'a quick snaps:

this one looks a little 2 tone in mixed light:

I bet you'd get a better response if you posted your own thread.

LOL. Very nice picture taking skills goodwood. Still loving the Ti. What kind of SLR are you using? I'm barely getting into the SLR hobby. Just got myself a canon 40D a month ago but going to exchange it for the new canon 50D.

Thanks. These were shot with a Nikon D3. I also have a D300 I use mostly for birding, and when I want a lightweight walking around rig w/o the vert grip
