It leaves tomorrow! ...or at least, it's being dropped off tomorrow.

Everything's as much in order as I believe I can get it in.. ride height's been raised, it's been waxed, lip's off, there's a note about the starting procedure in the cabin, extra keys in the console, MMR diff mounts in the trunk, pictures have been taken just in case...

I'm stoked.

No problems at all. Car picked up a day early and when delivered my trip odometer was exactly where it was when the car was picked up. Also I had tons of spare parts in the car and nothing was missing. When you expecting it??

I've been trying not to expect it any certain date, going by the other responses in this thread.

But the date DAS tells me is 4 May.

Good to hear yours went well!

Well, it's been 9 months already (minus ~10 days at Xmas), so a few more weeks will be nothing. Plus I did without it for around 7 months when I was in Kuwait. I'm absolutely looking forward to it though.

w00t! Picked it up today, no damage, just dusty and bugs on the paint. No big deal, no drama. Spent the rest of the afternoon redoing the intercooler piping (had been "tweaked" for shipping to increase ground clearance along with raising the coilovers), lowering the car, washing the bugs off, and finishing the cool air box I started a while ago. My friend Craig helped, he's in the first pic.

Gah - I'll upload pics later, photobucket is being homo.

Yup, keeping FL tags. I never bothered to take my dad's name off of the registration, and his house is in FL, and I'm still legally a FL resident. I just renewed my tags online for 2 years too.

EDIT - photobucket still being lame, but hey look - facebook allows hotlinking apparently!

Very nice indeed, I've been driving it a lot since I picked it up. Sorry I forgot to explain the white paint, my brother-in-law apparently had a bit of fun under the car when he was marking the coilovers so I could lower the car back where it was. Using the paint, he pointed out that my BOV is on the loud side, my inner tie rod boots are split wide open (helps explain the newfound play on center), and that I'm missing two bolts on the PPF.
