Genuinely interested in your spec to see what you opted for that isn't a waste of money.
agreed. Here is my spec and not one single option was a “waste”.

Only question I have is...I sent in my spec without PCCB...did I make a mistake there? I see that over 80% are ordering GT3RS with PCCB, but having driven other Porsches without PCCB I feel like I don't need the PCCB option. Especially at that price. Am I making a huge mistake? Here is my full spec for you all to critique and dissect.
I got a very similar spec in BC except I got the steels. I had PCCB on my .1RS and with extensive tracking I cringed toward the end of ownership with every hard braking corner because I knew it was only a matter of time for those carbon rotors (may as well be diamond for the cost). So I switched over to steels for my new .2RS build. I'm going to switch over to 19 inch wheels and tires right away which is much better for tracking anyway.

I also specced with WP knowing that zero performance gain but damn, black mohawk hood/roof/wing and black PDLS looks goooooood! I specced the car I want to drive, not the one I want to sell, so I also got leather and alcantara upgrades inside, Bose and big fuel tank for the drive to and from the track, Sport Chrono because I've actually got PTPA working decently for my home track. It also seems for at least trade in, PCCB didn't make much difference. The steels and 19 inch wheels means I can spend the extra dough on replacement pads rotors and tires and still come out ahead.

Haha, don’t feel bad. Mine is the most expensive 3RS in the US to date. I had no clue. I just ordered what I wanted and didn’t want to regret not having an option. (I tried and tried for mag wheels, didn’t happen)

So jealous of the BC roads. Always wanted to bring the car over to Vancouver but never have enough time to stay there to justify the cost of shipping it back and forth.

OP, maybe I missed something but did your dealer confirm the painted/unpainted hood issue?

Yes he did. The carbon hood is available. I just decided against the package to keep MSRP down. I originally started with a GT3 allocation that never came, so this was already a substantial jump in price.

who's your sales guy?
Heard Pfaff is probably hardest to get allocation. Have to be long time customer or had a lot of cars from them. Is that true? Congrats again on your allocation.

Wes: Did you have to re-sharpen your pencil halfway through checking all those boxes? Whoa.
Killer build. I do love the WP with Chaulk👍

OP: I would have made the same choices except I would change to white dials and leave Chrono black. ..but it’s your car and everyone likes something different.

. My wife still says I’m an idiot for not sticking with MB.
