Picked up an ES, and just moved back from N.C. about 2 weeks ago, after a 4 year move to Washington. Haven't got a house nailed down yet, but I'm floating around Aberdeen at the moment, and will likely settle in the area.

Mt. Pleasant

I sent my factory airbox to a (the?) guy who modifies airboxes for Xenon Element, he doesn't have an ES himself and asked me for pics to aid in fitment, and also asked to see if there were any NC people on forums interested in helping: "Could you send me some pics of area in front of and to drivers side of airbox? Or even better are you on a forum or know any ES owners near me? Need to see area I'm working with to make a ram air tube for it. Right now I'm thinking 3.5" or 3.75" airbox outlet with a 3.5"-4" functional ram air tube."

I sent him the pics I could take with my super shorty big gulp installed, but I'm sure he'd prefer to see it live. Anyone local to Mt. Pleasant and interested in helping develop their customized airbox solution?

I originally asked for a auto but they had to search for one, the dealer(sport Durst) I bought from both the sales person and the manager said they didn't know they offered an auto since they only had MT.

It took me a bit to find my DCT. Most of the dealers had manuals. I almost settled for a gray MT car but they found my silver DCT right as I was about to make a decision.

Thats interesting; I had to special order my GT with a manual because they are so few and far between.

I am! I'm in JoCO and commute to RTP for work. Driving my Blue ES and there's actually a Silver ES in the building next to mine.

On a side note, anyone know of a good tint shop rear Raleigh or somewhere not too far away?

I'll be coming down for my yearly Dragon meet on Oct 19th and staying at the Punkin Center Motorcycle resort on the 23rd and 24th and leaving for home on the 25th, Thursday morning. Before I get to the Punkin Center though I'm staying with my buddy in Decatur TN and exploring the roads around there with him again, they're awesome! Maybe a couple of us could meet up, I do drive through Robinsville N.C. though!

I live a little north east of Raleigh. I just picked up a 2017 ES, white from Carvana. I've seen 2 in the flesh at dealers (blue and silver) that were recently purchased. So there are some out there.
