You see, I really like the colour in those photos, but in reality it's a lot sharper

Do you mean it looks more pale; less warm?

I think this is closer to what it's like

Still looks good to me!

Many colours, including Racing Yellow, can look very different depending upon lighting/indoor/outdoor/clean/dirty/polished/detailed etc.

I love how it looks under showroom lights, but like it in outdoor shots too.

£90k? It's your fault I'm now looking at a £100k bill - I thought I'd decided against PCCBs until this afternoon!!!!!

I did put a little 'plus' sign after the £90k.

I will be adding PCCBs to my order on Monday, having got lots of invaluable feedback from Rennlisters.

I think you've chosen the best colour for the T and the best gearbox both incidentally free..PCCBs would be the first extra cost option i would pick and a close second would be RAS..I drove both RAS and non RAS 991S's at Silverstone last February as i was undecided on speccing it for my April build 991.2 GTS..I thought RAS was transformative at all speeds and while the non RAS understeered the RAS car turned in like a GT4 and was much more agile and neutral at all speeds.
RAS is unavailable on the basic 991 and by adding it to the T will give it the USP it deserves and give it a handling advantage over the basic 991.It also reduces its turning circle at low speeds making parking easier.
I fully realise its very easy to spend other peoples money however on the T the combination of manual,PCCBs and RAS will make it a cracking car..I also think its a wise decision not to spec the glass roof to keep the lightweight T ethos intact..

@Taffy66 - How does the Silverstone day work? I'm booked in for the coming Saturday and I've been allocated a C2S PDK as it's the only car they have with LWBs and RAS, both of which I wanted to trial. I asked if it was also possible to also drive a PCCB-equipped car but they said 'no' - it was just 1 person / 1 car.

There is flexibility. Talk nicely to your instructor on arrival and let him/her know what you'd like. In my experience, they'll do their best to fit in with your request. On my second visit to the PEC, I took my daughter (age 21). I split my session with her. I drove a Panamera and then Emma drove a Boxster with a manual box.
