Randy and guys,
I am currently staying Disney's Grand Californian hotel (w-kids, etc.)
This AM I called Symbolic and got a bit of a brush(not too bad though) they asked if I had a deposit with them. I asked if it wouldn't be too much to ask if I could just look at the cars since I was actually buying a car from another dealer. They sort of discouraged it so I immediately sped off for La Jolla in my buddies 04 Audi Nogaro Blue S-4 Sedan.
The first car to arrive at the sales dept from PDI was a starlight black/blk, hardtop, touring, w/clearbra. The black is the least attractive color IMHO, and the car was still stunning. These cars are soooo special. The detailer was very cool and had his 6-7 yr old daughter help detail the interior (nice touch). I had to coach the detailer as to how to start the car(starter button/unlocked alarm, etc).
The sales staff was pretty nice once I got there. They told me that they had received approx 60 calls this AM in regard to the cars.
We are now entering the mania phase we will see people paying astronomical sums for these cars in the next few weeks. I'm here to tell you that when you get your car be prepared for pandemonium to erupt wherever you happen to park your baby Elise.
My wife came along for the ride as well as my dayghter's boyfriend and his pal(17 yr olds). They were completley blown away by the exoticness of the car. My wife says " if you get killed in that car I'll be so mad!" Pretty nice statement!! I assured her that thecar was one of the safest cars on the road(big rigs excuded)
One of the guys at Symbolic said that he knew Randy and that his car was a bit delayed..
