Default After much deliberation, I finally picked up my first GT3.

Could someone help ID the caliper and wheel blue paint? I believe it's Mexico blue or Voodoo.
Picked up the car in Florida with 3k miles on the clock. Shipped her out to Las Vegas and put about 1.5k miles on in 8 days of Red Rock, Vally of Fire and good ol' Vegas traffic. Clear bra incoming soon. Dealer still hasn't sent me the window sticker sadly. I need to frame that baby!

If itís factory CXX, the window sticker wonít help you. Did your try typing the VIN into vinanalytics?

regardless, my guess would be riviera or Mexico.

I don't believe CXX offers painted calipers, even 'famous'/VIP patrons have been historically denied.

With that said, I wonder how Ursula got hers in blue, hmmm

There have been a handful that got approved. The price I heard was insane, even for Porsche CXX. And the color stripe on the wheels is available CXX.

I got approved for a stripe (Gulf Blue) on the wheels, but got rejected for calipers (so wasn't even quoted a price). Then for good measure I asked for my fire extinguisher to be in exterior PTS. I could almost hear the laugh at the other end LOL

Oh man, a PTS fire extinguisher CXX. Lol. The stripe is cool, but the cost is a bit much for me.

I got denyed on my wood wheel (apparently someone else got approved, but I have not seen it). However, it was really easy to do the wood wheel from Techequipment and then delete the multifunction stuff.

Touch the calipers, if the Porsche logo is a decal that you can feel and not baked in, the color is definitely not factory.

Is that sun reflection in the DRL's, or clear housing over an amber LED lamp? Either way, that build looks awesome.
