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.
Another chalk/pccb inspiring photo I found. Hard combo to beat IMO.

+1
My 3RS is chalk, PCCB, yellow deviated. I think the chalk/yellow combo is by far the best. If PAG only offered steel brakes I would have to paint the calipers yellow.

and since we’re posting photos here is my neighbors chalk/yellow 2RS

Weissach as appearance package looks good to my eyes.



It definitely looks good but too pricey for me as an appearance package. I couldn't justify it myself. I went with PCCB instead.

I prefer yours with the red interior but this looks amazing nonetheless. If they come out with a 992 2RS down the line I hope to be able to get an allocation when the time comes.

Do you track much? Apologies if you already stated.

Either way, congrats! IMO you can’t spec a car like this “wrong”.

You will drive like a rich person but only look like a poor person. I am personally just fine with that. ;-)
What a poser. You PCCB guys always trying to make people think you have steelies.

You are a more secure person than me. I'd have trouble hiding the obvious visual cue that I checked that option box heh.

Couldn't disagree more. The only color I wouldn't spec with PCCBs is red (just not into the McDonald's thing). The big yellow ceramics are gorgeous and look fantastic with a lot of colors. And performance-wise, they are tops. PCCBs are perhaps the first box I'd tick.

I don't track enough where I have to worry about replacing them. Thanks

These cars all look amazing.

Yellow or Red calipers....hard to go wrong. I am enjoying the red/chalk. Glad you are enjoying your yellow/chalk.

To my eye, the PCCB's painted red match up nicely with all the brake lights, etc.
Thanks for not asking me how much I over optioned the interior. Now that would qualify me for permanent poser status. But hey, I happen to really like carbon fiber and a lot of leather. It makes me happy every time I get in it -- which by the way, is so $&%*'ing damn hard with the LWBS seats.
LOL

Pccb’s for most are an appearance option ie no brake dust. The added performance due to weight savings is not going to be extracted by the majority of us, same goes for the WP. Again both are appearance options. Get what you like.

Hey! I think yellow PCCB look killer on GR.
Its all subjective and opinions vary like snowflakes (the real ones not the lib ones)

I don't get why so many people spec Sport Chrono...total waste of money and just adds a wart to the dash.

Hey man, you're preaching to the choir. I only said "maybe" to give those who hate on the PCCB a little something to stand on.
snowflakes are a waste of time (the lib ones not the real ones).

Disliking the look is one thing, but for those who like it, I hardly think it is a waste of money. This is one of the least expensive options you can opt for.
Genuinely interested in your spec to see what you opted for that isn't a waste of money.
