someone to assist you in trying to get that color on the approved
PTS list, just like GreenLantern managed to get 'Chartreuse'
approved after a long process & color feasibility study.

I thought Slate Y97 would've been the most similar to Nardo / Chicane Grey which is why I ultimately opted for it on the GT4, although I do agree it will be darker than Nardo. My next choice was Fashion Grey.

Will do. If it arrives at the dealer by then, I will try to fly down in 2 weeks. Although ordered through Scott Doty at Danbury Porsche (fantastic guy) with huge assist from Melissa Witek in Atlanta, I am having it shipped to (the dealership formerly known as) Brumos. Not great driving season in Connecticut! Will likely leave it in Florida until the Spring thaw!

Sorry for the OT, but how did you get Danbury Porsche to ship your car to formerly known as Brumos? This would've made logistics extremely easier for me since I'm now on the east coast but my car is destined for Houston, which means I have to then wait another week for the car to be transported back halfway across the country to me

Three great friends helped arrange the 'remote' delivery: Scott Doty, Melissa Witek, and Hurley Haywood.

Courtesy Delivery at an out-of-state dealer can be arranged
for many German-made automobiles as part of the delivery
process stateside. I have done over 10 of them - Porsche,
BMW, Mercedes & Audi - in the past 30 years. The latest
now for me will be a 'courtesy delivery' of my Audi RS7 in
Washington State shortly (Feb or March) so that my wife &
I can plan a small tour of the Pacific Northwest at the start
of our RS7 ownership experience.

All it takes is your dealer to coordinate with another willing
dealer in the network. And it might mean that your selling
dealer might have to share the 'delivery prep' expense that
the importer (e.g. PCNA) pays the dealer for that minor
'work'. But it's all doable if it's arranged ahead of when
the car gets shipped from the German port of Emden!
The car never gets transported to the selling dealer. It
goes from port of entry to the location of the 'courtesy
delivery' dealer. There is no extra expense for the selling
dealer or the importer to get it there!

Ah, thanks for the valuable information. I'll be sure to use this in future situations if the need arises!

Saw these pics. PTS on a new turbo already? Surprised considering how many are still waiting on PTS RS's.
