Hi worldwidewebs

It was a number of things really:

* Number one was budget. Didn't want to stretch myself financially & take away some of the joy of my new 911.
* Didn't want to over-spec my car. I put £13k of options on my Panamera 4, which was too much really.
* As has been said, add too much to a 911 T and you're in GTS territory.
* The ethos of the T seems to be to keep it simple.
* The car looks great with the standard brakes, even though the PCCBs would have been more impressive & prettier.
* My motivation for considering the PCCBs was more aesthetic than performance related, if I am honest.
* The issue of stones getting trapped in the front wheels.
* The cost of replacing the discs if damage occurred.

Not to say that I wouldn't go for a GT3 with PCCBs in the future!

Cheers,

Simon

Yep OP get the PCCBs, outside of the aforementioned positives... it just belongs on the T. Cheers!

edit... Oops just saw you already decided against the PCCBs. It'll be a great car regardless, now the wait begins, good luck with that
Ha ha! Thanks, OC 991!

Cheers,

Simon

I'd just upgrade to Brembo later on down the road if the stock brake is really end of under performing. Aesthetically they look just as pretty.

You won't regret it. Enjoy the car. I have owned a TTS (w/ PCCB obviously) and now my 981 Spyder. The steel brakes are truly fantastic! The no brake dust is nice of the PCCBs.... but I'm very very happy with my steel brakes. As you said, the point of the T is to keep it minimal.

Thank you, guab!

Enjoy your Boxster and I look forward to posting on here when my T arrives!

GT3 - lucky you!

That's my ultimate Porsche.

Over here in the UK it is incredibly hard to get hold of a new one, as Porsche Centres reserve them for their VIP customers.

And the used ones are going for way more than what they cost new!

Very frustrating!

Thanks, Blue Flame! You're a gentleman!

I love that non-metallic Racing Yellow paint job! And the deviated yellow stitching on the black leather!

The excitement and anticipation build...!!!

I don't get it. Every photo I see of the centre console has the heated rear screen button present, as in Blue Flame's photo, and in the video, press release and brochure.
But, lightweight glass and heated rear screen are not mutually compatible according to the configurator.

Does this mean:
1. Every car shown so far has had lightweight glass deleted (I think unlikely as it's a USP for the T & GT2RS); or
2. Porsche always fit the button even if there's no heated screen i.e. it's a dead button.

Thanks. I've deleted the lightweight glass too. Would prefer to have the heated rear screen (and rear seats and PCM) as for me, it'll be a sole car and daily driver.
