That’s highly debatable. Look great with the blues IMHO.

WP is for “weight savings” ...lol.

you then pick heavier steels for more unsprung weight.

Get the pccbs if its if it’s a choice unless you have to have WP for it cf appearance.

You definitely get a handicap bonus for how big you are, buddy!

So honestly I'd say stick with what you want as there's no "wrong" combination. The discussion of WP or not, PCCB or steels had been debated to death and each has its supporters and non believers. As you see in this thread alone, you're getting mixed opinions so you're going to have to decide for yourself. Hence, stick with what you originally wanted. If anyone thinks WP without PCCB is weird, I'd say WP without MAG is weirder.

Default Order PCCB

On my GT3 (chalk), I had them removed, repainted red and put back on. Yellow and chalk don't mix. Chalk and red do.

You will drive like a rich person but only look like a poor person. I am personally just fine with that. ;-)

Personally I like the look but my guess is so that you can add the Lap Trigger.

Funny, I think the exact opposite and would paint red calipers yellow for a chalk car. I ordered my 2RS in chalk because I love the chalk/black/yellow combo. Pic is not my car (March build) but was inspirational aside from the red interior.

There are countless options on RS that raises your question and imo the sports chrono could hardly be up on that list. Considering the SC costs less than alcantara sun visors, it is a no brainer. I admit I don't use it for its intended function, but I still think it is better value than most if not all other options. I think even its only purpose was a clock, I would still opt for it. I think it looks off without it on the dash

That looks amazing.
I agree, I never understood the hate on the look of the PCCB. I think the yellow contrast works better than the red steels on every color besides maybe GR.

Had pccb on my gt4 and steel on 991.1 gts. Went with steel on my gt3rs, especially if you track.

Weissach as appearance package looks good to my eyes.
