Default Center Lock removal polygon tool

Is the CL polygon tool included with the 2014,2015 GT3 ? mine is missing , dealer says they are not standard with the car . Called PCA service rep she sent the question back too the Service Advisor at the dealership.

Checked the owner's manual p.194 shows tool on frunk area.

Are you sure it is not in the round storage container with a screw on lid located under the battery, master cylinder cover. The tool comes standard equipment with the car. Inside the tool where the drive socket attaches there is a small tool for removing the dust cover also included as standard equipment.

So a dealer had no clue!?!?!? Not surprising. Do they even read the prep material sent to them??

You get the Sport Button or the tool. You can't expect both.

Red GTS, maybe you can refer your service advisor to page 194 of the owner's manual and the pic below. Then tell him that he ought to be ashamed of himself for not knowing the most basic facts about the cars he services....

PS I see Sam beat me to the punch on the pic. That's ok, now you have two pics you can show your SA.

That tool sells for $295. Maybe that has something to do with why your SA has developed amnesia about how it's standard or why it's gone missing in the first place....
