Default What do you think about installing Pepita seat inserts on a red with arum wheels RS

Ok, so I figure might as well discuss something more pleasant than worrying about "tariffs" which we have no control over.
Let's say there are no tariffs and we all get our anxiously awaited RSs. Mine is Guards red with arum wheels, red belts and white gauges and aluminum pedals. Silver/white stitching on leather.
Suncoast has Pepita seat inserts in black and white for $2400.00.

Worth it? Do you think it will look good?

It would look hot. But you should check out these from Garry at ClassicFX for less than $1,000 in black/white/red. He makes OEM-quality inserts.

Material is old-school wool. I have a pair in my car and adore them.

IMO doesn't fit the RS and full blown racecar look since you asked, but admittedly I am not even the biggest fan of the pepita on some of the winged GT3 builds whereas on touring and some of the "more classy/less racing" style wing GT3 builds it works very very well (like the R)

That being said, at the end of the day if a hot pink RS, or wing delete RS, or pepita in your gorgeous GR .2 3RS makes you happy go for it - that's all that matters

Pepita is like gold BBS. Goes with any 911 ever made.
