Looks good.

Two items you might want to consider if your going for a black theme. Black nipples and black name plates on the rear.

My vote is forget about the washer color but change the text on the back to black. And I commend you on the choice of carbon fiber steering wheel - I got one in my GTS and I LOVE it. It ties together all the other CF bits that are in the car, including the door sills, shift ****, trim. Congrats on the build - apologies for the painful waiting period!

you should. It's pretty nice. beats trying to do it yourself later if you end up regretting not getting it now.

I ended up ordering an aftermarket CF housing that included the mirror surround also but have not motivated myself to actually do the install yet. If I could do it over again, I would have ordered it straight from the factory and be done with it.

Super expensive - need sport design mirrors, carbon fibre mirrors and to complete the all black Mirror Look you need the lower arms painted in gloss black as well - works out to almost 3K canadian for mirrors!

If I get black i would save so much money - probably 10k - Black doesnt need the Aero kit or carbon Fibre Mirrors to look bad ***

Beautiful combination, nice build. As much as I'm partial to orange, the white-red-black theme is both classy and fitting for a car like this; it was one of the combos I considered. and, even though I didn't go for the side lettering, on your build it looks sweet because it adds another black element to the white background. Enjoy!!!

Hahahaha.... you are doing what I did. But I went from Miami blue to white instead of orange to white. I really wish that I had kept my original color. An exotic color makes your Porsche an exotic car. Going with white, black, or silver makes you blend in with everyone else.

Here's what I ended up with. Still happy but would have been even happier to stand out with an exotic color.

Certainly the toughest part of purchasing one of these cars (other than cutting that big cheque) is choosing the color ...nice car you'll luv it

Color combo is great -- just like the one in my garage -- had it since last Nov -- very happy with my choices, after going through the multitude of changes and different color combo's -- landed on the right one. Then, one of my friends drove home a TS Miami Blue from dealer inventory, and I was blown away by that color. Though, I'm not sure how that color would grow on me long term. You are safe with your color combo. BTW, the Turbo wheels are great -- look fantastic -- and stays clean as the interior is a glossy dark gray -- nothing sticks to it.

Congrats on finalizing the order! While lava orange would have been stunning, white is probably easier to live with day-to-day with less unwanted attention. Plus the black trim still stands out on a white car. Looking forward to seeing it delivered!

Are you still getting the wheels in black?
