This is the first car I've ever ordered in my life. First NA Porsche in more than 10 years. Except the cgt's.

Can't wait to hammer it.

Do it, do it. Here are some other silver pics with black wheels to help (car is likely Rhodium, but similar look).

Great spec...

If you're choosing silver based on those pics in the other thread, I don't blame you. Having seen three GT3s at the same time in white, red, and silver, I liked them all but would have taken the silver car home, then the red. The trick is picking silvers based on photos, which don't capture grain. If you can, try to get eyes on them at a dealership. If you can't, the quick guide is: GT is slightly gray/dirty/grainy while Rhodium is clean/crisp/less blue than you expect. Had a Cayman S here in Rhodium and really fell for it. Super crisp and sharp, and really highlighted body details nicely. Nowhere near as blue as Polar, which someone in the building has on a 993 and is too blue for me.

What you like will depend on you, but I'd go Rhodium with the gray wheels, or GT if I wanted silver wheels.

Of course, you can't go "wrong" GT with the gray wheels...the new GT3 looks GREAT in silver, period. Hope this helps in the event you're stuck in the great white north...

Congrats on the order!

Ah, the little stuff. Good call on the net. Also consider the $0 smoking package carefully.

I don't smoke, but I'd get it just to finish off the bottom/back of the center console, since the "cubby" it replaces with a nice door is too small for a phone (or much else) anyway. The door means you can hide coins, etc, but it really finishes the console off nicely.

Now, if there were only a way to truly finish off the console, as in send it back to the Panamera....or get it back down to the width/simplicity of the CGT's.

Yup, the dealer convinced me to add the smoking package.

Specs are personal, but here are some thoughts you may want to consider:

Not a fan of the clear tail lights (with any color I've seen so far). The contrasting red tail lights accentuate the wide a** better. If you go standard tail lights, then standard (red) brakes may be a better option. Finally, standard wheels are gorgeous and may look better on GT silver. As a combo, the red brakes connect with the red tail lights -- the platinum (darker, but not black) wheels connect with the darker headlights. Saves you some dough, too.

Whatever you choose you'll be happy. Congrats!
