Black 3RS spec, PDLS or not?
 
I am specing a 3RS-- i prefer it relatively understated and would like Black with satin platinum wheels. Only thing i cannot decide on are the headlights-- should i go PDLS+ or not? I think the relatively bright "plain" lights looks OK with a black car-- so i am not sure about the PDLS+ -- i don't know if the configurator render is an accurate depiction of how it looks in the real world. Would anyone have pics of a black GT3/RS with "plain" and/or PDLS+ lights? I can't seem to find many pics with non-PDLS cars. Thank you

Go for the black PDLS.. I did when ordering my 2RS and I think they suite the black color more.

Yes. When placing the order 3 weeks ago they removed 2 options from the factory, Mag wheels & PTS. Unfortunately no real world pics till I get the car sometimes in May.

The buckets on the lights will be quite a bit lighter than the satin platinum wheels. If you are hoping for a match you will be disappointed.

Perhaps due to supply issues.

...neither

Go with Xenon and Black housing. The HID's Black Housing is darker than the PDLS+ Drak Grey (they are nowhere close to Black) housings. My former and current 991 GT3 RS and my 991 TTS have all the same headlights: PDLS+ in Black, these things are heavy, and the Regular optional HID in Black look more 911 classic, they are lighter and the low beam HID has plenty enough brightness. You'll save money too.

Unfortunately, they stopped offering Xenon's with the black house on the .2 cars.

You all worried about how the exterior look? the pdls+ led are awesome at night... definitely worth it

crayon991 02-12-2019 02:55 PM

thanks. its amazing how the cars look different in real life

Brosef 02-12-2019 02:59 PM

I'd say yes

Itzkirb 02-12-2019 03:00 PM

PDLS is one option I wish my .2 3RS had.

If you're of an OCD / anal nature get the blacks. If not I swear you'll notice it once and then NEVER notice again and no one else will either (except for a few OCD / anal RL'ers!!!!). I also think that very few of these cars are driven at night and so no need for upgraded lights.

crayon991 02-12-2019 04:47 PM

I found this "real world" photo online, with the lizard green cage (I am in Australia we can spec the cage) i think it breaks it up a little, also showing the PDLS

Get the black PDLS.

Fast Doc 02-12-2019 08:39 PM

Go the black PDLS, I think it looks great especially with WP

Go win the black. I have the silver on my black .1 GT3 and the black on my .2 3RS. PDLS on both. The latter looks much better.

crayon991 02-21-2019 01:42 AM

Thanks for all your help.

In the end, I switched to Chalk over black.

My GT3 is chalk, and i love the dynamic nature of it (changes to dark grey in low light, almost white in sunlight).
