Sorry bro, but I work hard for everything I earned and at this level yes I expect it to be perfect. Fix is likely over 3 months to get the pieces properly. Not acceptable. Yes soldiers are dying in Syria and and Iraq but in our microcosm, you expect a certain level for a product long worked for and paid for!!
I wouldn't be happy either. Good thing it is easily repairable. Just takes time and you can still enjoy the car. But I would ask the dealer for a little compensation. But you don't want to make it to difficult and ruin the relationship with the dealer. You may want to get another GT from them in the future.

Black sharpie color the white stitching. looks too busy on the trim pieces anyways. no one else will ever notice.

Be thankful you can afford the car and realize that people make mistakes. I'm sure you have made a few in your day.

Enjoy the car and I hope you drive it.

Everything else looks great with the car - congrats. Sometimes the ball gets dropped unfortunately but could have been worse. You can't always hit the radiograph apex every time but have to try. Porsche factory probably gets weird requests with color combos/stitching etc. They were probably filling the order they see on the screen. Quality control looks at what the order was and does it match. He/She probably scratched their head and said weird combo but I guess that is what customer wanted and stitching lines up! Hope everything works out on it soon.

The deviated stitching option, dealer must submit exact instructions. It's handled via "text handle"
Most likely a dealer error! If they don't do it often, it is likely they messed up.

Actually any upholstery shop with experience can color the platinum thread to yellow and get it very very close. But is that acceptable in a brand new 225k car?? I guess to some it is. To me it isn't even remotely acceptable, nor would I ever expect the same from my customers that I serve!!

In the biz, we call them patients. JK

Awesome car. I think your pics of the Miami blue and Mexico blue rear bumpers next to one another on the bench show the color difference between the two better than any I have seen before.

This is why you don't get deviated stitching:

1. It's ugly
2. It's tacky; a car with deviated stitching makes the owner look like the same type of person who would wear True Religion jeans
3. The customer, the dealership, or maybe PAG will screw something up

I know it must be difficult, but hopefully even this won't rain on your parade - enjoy the GT3 RS as I am sure it will be rectified.

May very well go to these guys for correction: https://rennlist.com/forums/991-gt3-...l#post15536944

By definition, the default is not "deviated"

This thread is a good reminder that somethings are best kept to oneself.

The order was entered wrong. It can be easily fixed.
No big deal.

The photos do show how washed out Miami looks next to Mexico. Viva La Mexico!!

Don't mean to be a buzz kill, but I don't think it will be a quick fix if that's what the dealer (I suspect you're hearing this from someone on the sales side) is telling you. I'd chat with the parts manager who will likely tell you a different story since this will be a special ordered deviated stitching piece - nothing that is going to be on the shelf in PCNA or Porsche Germany parts bins. The posters who mentioned how critical it is for the salesperson to understand the complexity of ordering deviated stitching are spot on....most don't fully understand it and your bad experience lies at their feet.
