To each his own on PPF. But, the CQuartz works. I've washed DDG with water twice in two years (just before winter sleep.) The rest of the time it's quick detailing spray and MF towels. Still looks perfect everywhere.
that's a lot. I can't justify 5k or even 3k for a thin piece of plastic and some wax!

Ive had my Z06 since April and have tons of stone chips on the bumper hood and 1/4 panels. Battle scars from testing 0-60 almost every night hahah. And when I took to dealer for possible trade the wear was a non issue.

Guys, I'm a relative newbie, but please specify what all of the above acronyms mean. Thanks.

Get the orange. Will look killer.

I have black, it is hard to maintain. Looks good when clean.

PTS is a Porsche-specific acronym: Paint-to-Sample
DDG is the acronym for my 991's name (Dirty, Dirty Girl; full details by clicking on "991TT" in my signature.

So I switched out the center caps for the ones that comes with the 50th anniversary wheels on my black painted turbo wheels. They came in matte black but I gloss clear coated them myself to match better.

Haha oh my what a roller coaster ride. Congrats on sticking with the orange! I think you will be very glad with your decision once you take delivery and compare your car next to a sea of white and black 911's.

haha thanks! plus I had mega anxiety about Black - Have a Black Z06 - takes hours to clean it properly and wax - annoying......

It definitely was a rollercoaster ride lol. Orange then white black agate grey confirmed carmine red, black white and back to orange hahaha

my dealer probably wants to kill me but they are charging me full price so screw them.
