Car looks great- Congrats. I too have grown to like this color. Police would be all over me.

You can not drive MB and go unnoticed

Question for those in SoCal. Any recommendations for a person to do a paint correction and xpel PPF?

Im thinking of driving it back up to the Bay Area, but would like to have it protected first. Dealer has a team he has used for 15 years and will be getting a price for me, but figured I could get some good recommendations here.

Dealer offered the Porsche delivery experience center there also which would make it a fun trip.

MSRP straight up and down - anyway I want to pay for it, except for probably bitcoin!

Good to hear from a Cali dealer. Makes one wonder what the issue was with jack. Maybe just didn't like the build.

Congrats again!

Yea, I had a PTS allocation and was going with Riviera Blue....and then it got pushed back to Spring, and the original $$ doubled...and I passed, didn't want to wait and pay...I love the color and thanks to everybody for all the kudos!

Track it? Only if I get invited to Thermal....

I think the deal just evolved over time, with Jack's first interactions including some shenanigans on the dealer's side. Jack was very gracious in helping me secure this.

Great car - congrats! I wish more people would just love MB for what it is, rather than trying to pull the green out to look like Riviera. It's unique, and gives another fun option.

We’re working on RUF RS’s MB GT3 and it needed A LOT of TLC to correct the paint and prep it for clear bra.

check out this thread:

we’d love the opportunity to work on yours as well

Miami Blue is stunning...manual...buckets...congrats!

My picks in socal...
Detail: Joe @ Superior Shine ([email protected])
Film: Sean @ Ultimate Shield ([email protected]). Sean favors suntek for its transparency and low profile orange peel; but either way his work is easily the best in SoCal.

Congratulations on the car. Beautiful car and gorgeous color. The Miami blue looks so much better in person. Pictures don’t do it justice....My wife specified it on our 2017 911 4S targa and I really was not in agreement with her but all that changed when we took position of the car. I fell in love with it. It is Truly stunning color. I own 7 Porsche’s and this is the car that I always gets the most thumps up while driving and the most I see people taking selfies with while it is parked. Also the most color that gets vocal positive reviews from women from all ages. If I am ever single again that would be the only color I would buy. Enjoy the car. Mark

Thanks guys.

Interesting that typically women are able to “see” more colors than men.. This color was the only one that my wife has really liked and been excited about (admittedly she hasn’t seen a bunch of PTS colors).

Thanks for the info on the detailers.
