Here is some photos after my trip to Long Beach Marina. Already more than 100 miles on it. I think I have break-in the car already the bad smell almost disappeared and every time I drive it feels better and stronger, on my last trip I never thought the tires will spin when I shift 1st - 2nd even though it is dry and all trac. control are working!!! I need to pass by the dealer to properly check tire pressure. On Star report shows 34 to 33 psi I passed by a station and fill it up to 36 but the driver center showing 33 psi all tires under normal condition(car is stoped and cold).
Other than that its perfect.
There is a note in the car manual to check engine oil level on every fueling up, is that true?! the car would warn us about the low level oil??

BTW, Need better than cell phone camera !!!! sorry for the bad quality
I am looking forward to meet Orange Krate ASAP.

thank you, show us your car it should be nasty bad as$

the tire pressure should be 36 psi at cold that’s what door tag/user manual says. Personally prefer higher pressure than lower. you notice the extra power of the car. I know as an engineer tire design should handle more than intended pressure especially brand new ones. but I am still not recommending more than what it says
PS "I didn’t design the tires”

Well after last Sat. disaster at the dealership, I got a call from my salemen and told me mine came in sometime last night.
He said it took a half hour to dig it out of the snow.
He will e-mail me the pics later.
Its now been cleaned up and stored inside nice and warm till I pick it up next Sat.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN... I give you (the cell phone version) Orange Krate!!! Turns out he is really a boy. He was delivered to the dealer this day at noontime on a Chinese junk coming around the Horn of Africa in typhoon season! Nonetheless he is here in one piece. Since I am in Maryland until Wednesday there won't be any good photos til then. I still have to sign the sales contract and then they will paint the ground effects and install them.

I am so excited that...oh never mind. More to come. There will be bubble gum cigars if I can find some to purchase.

Thanks Frank and Kim!!! And by the way...HOLY @#$% I am freezing my garbonzo beans off here! Jeez. I am a native So Cali boy and tonight I thought I was a goner when the wind picked up and shook the commercial building vestibule I was standing in. It felt like a minor earthquake. No snow yet. But that could change. Stay warm...holding Elvira! Yeah baby yeah!!!
