We greatly enjoyed the tasting room at Martel last year - small, friendly, less snooty, very affordable and very good champagnes. Probably any of the cellar tours will be great, the ones in town are...

Hah! We could not see it at the dealer, either - it is unique to the GT and our dealer did not have a good set of samples. We looked at a tiny, tiny piece next to similar hues and tones and took a...

IB was my initial choice, though we chose Neptune Blue in the end. Your IB looks very elegant, very deep and saturated, great choice, great car - just keeps getting better!

Thumbs up Musical Versatility.

The only way we could get the cello to fit was to stand the hard case on its side and put the...

We have the multi-contour seats as part of the sports package. Having driven 3500 miles in the US and on our ED, I think the seats are very comfortable and supportive. I prefer a slightly firmer...

I don't think you actually press down on the ribbed section of the door handle, just touching it seems to work.

Overall, I find the door unlocking system a little confusing, need to read the...

Since you will be close to Andechs, perhaps a raucous bit from Carmina Burana.

When we picked up our 535 GT in Greenville, the front plate was still double-stuck to the bumper. Jonathan and the wonderful staff removed the ED plate and drilled holes (I know, I know...) for the...

I've got the soft-shut doors, too, and am getting better at nudging them towards close without slamming. Guests in the car, however, keep slamming them. I did not get the ejector seat package. ...

I think of it as an impromptu pipe organ. You can tune out the annoying pulses by choosing the right window(s) and the amount of crack. The fabric deflector also hisses a bit at higher speeds.

Somewhere along the way someone sported away our Swiss vignette. Austria still intact, but the Swiss one was good for a year (ripofff!) and clearly had value on the market. Plates will get placed...

Recommendations for mats/liners?

Anyone have recommendations for GT floor and cargo mats? I've looked up WeatherTech, wondering if there...

Drive fast. I felt cautious on the first lap or so, but then it seemed that the M3 was challenging me to go faster, so I stomped on it; probably an embarrasing display of low talent, but a lot of...

I think that the odds of having unsatisfactory effects increases when the lens gets into a 3x zoom range, maybe 4x for the better lenses. My 24-135 Nikon has pronounced barrel distortion at 24mm,...
