I thought all the GT4's were sold?  As for small engines, you can pick up a used Smart car for like $5-6K these days if not below that.  Those things are fun to run around town in but highways are a little sketchy.

My father recently picked up his GLE (before thanksgiving) and I can confirm the electronics on the dash blow. Very unintuitive system, and I felt that my brother's '12 X5, my '14 Grand Cherokee and my girlfriend's '15 X3 all had better (and more intuitive in different ways; iDrive for the bimmers is better use of a trackpad/center console controlled system and the Uconnect in the Jeep is a much better touch screen) and easier to use electronic systems

Pending on where you are in the production schedule, you can wait awhile to spec your car, I know of multiple GT3 RS's which haven't been fully spec'd yet.

Has anyone driven the GLC in comparison with the Q5?

What's the GLC? Is that the new designation for the old GLK? If so current generation is far better than the first but it's small.

Dem full bucket seats be costing 4k which I think is reasonable, but... fuckin 2 grand for a lightweight li-on battery?! lmao porsche.
I will laugh at anyone who specs a li-ion battery that isn't a pro racing team. but the majority of GT4's are expected to cross $100k anyway.

Mine is currently specced with LW buckets, PCCB, leather interior, deviated stitching and seatbelts, dual zone climate control, CF trim, PCM and PDLS. It's....uh....significantly over that mark 😅

But the only way to stay under $100k comfortably is to forgo both PCCB and LWB. They're the highest ticket items

Presumably this is in Europe. If you had access to a North American allocation you can make yourself a nice $80-100k flipping it right now

Exactly, a friend had the GLK and I couldnt get comfortable in the front passenger seat as my knees were in the dash but apparently they've made it longer. I was curious if anyone had given it a test drive. Looks to sit somewhere between the Q5 and X1 now.

Ah, have not driven that generation yet. I'm going in for service in a month or two and usually get one for a loaner. I'll report back.

My Grand Cherokee pickup was well times, dealt with the blizzard pretty well. I sat in the GLC before I settled on the Jeep. It was comfortable for the driver, but I didn't pursue a test drive. I like the look though, much better than the GLK it replaced.

Are the CCBs worth it? beyond the obvious performance enhancements, I think the biggest draw to ceramic brakes would be the lack of brake dust. I wouldn't drop $10k for that benefit, tho.

Also you can bet your ass I would flip dat shit if I could get an allocation. That's a 100% ROI! And isn't your name hROI?!

Which exterior / interior color combo are you getting?
post #19946 of 26274
Yes it's in Europe and they are being bought for investment and won't see the pavement anytime soon, they pretty being bought as retirement fund together with a bunch of other rare cars black series, speciale etc.

The PCCB's aren't really a rational decision. The performance differential isn't huge, and they're expensive to replace. But dat yellow inlove.gif

I'm getting sapphire blue/black/yellow stitching

The Porsche bubble to me feels unreal. I have a GT3 that I've been driving for 5 years that apparently (if asking prices can be believed) I can sell for $5-10 grand more than what I paid

The 458 aperta is already at €700k, but yeah I don't understand it either. The older air cooled yes, but the new water cooled Porsches I don't get it.
