I have the red dials and don't see any issues at night? Not sure what anyone is talking about.

They are still red and eliminate well with adjustable lighting. One issue is when light is low but not low enough to trigger auto on, they are difficult to see. Otherwise nothing noticed.

No issues at all. I wrote that I found them "a bit strange at night" and that's all. I love them more at day light. Just my personal taste.

Soo happy for you.

Great color and options! Red dials are fantastic.

I'm also jealous not just that you have a nice .2 997 there but how clean your garage is! Mines full of kids bikes, Barbie Doll houses and Princess dresses.

And great quote by the way. I can't believe more fellows don't know about that movie. Great flick.

Hello? No, Rick is not here. Who am I? The guy stealing Rick's car...

Thank you! I actually have two separate 2 car garages. So, I keep the "Porsche garage" clean and all the mess goes to the "Family garage"

I've been watching this movie so many times... and every time I get a "new" detail that I didn't notice before. This phone call scene is classic!


No Man's Land Theatrical Trailer:

930 Turbo Chase Scene:

Ebay has the 2003 Edition DVD (full screen) listed for around $10. A must have for any Porsche enthusiast!

One of the best Porsche car chase scenes ever!! I wore out the VHS tape. I didn't even have my license yet. I still cringe when Ted cuts the roof of that Turbo in that parking garage. Nuts!


Back to the car.

Amazing red on red calipers on red dials!! Great!

Yeah, it hurts seeing Ted cutting the top of this shining GR 930 Turbo Cab!

Here you go Tony:



At night, there's no big difference if you compare with black dials.



Note the red dials being illuminated by the pointers.



... and with the garage lights on, the red color pops a little. This is quite the way it looks at dusk, when you still have daylight and turn the lights on.
