Excellent build! Blue over two tone leather with spasm! Sunroof delete icing on the cake! I donĺt think the 4-way seats would support my back but that can be changed/adjusted later on so not the biggest worry there!

Looks like a very nice build.
I'd miss the sunroof around town, but not at highway speeds and long trips like you are planning.
I'd get the Power Steering Plus software removed (deprogrammed), unless arm strength is an issue.
If you are offered good deal, go for it.

There's no reason to go sunroof or non sunroof other than personal preference. Which is not to denigrate personal preference -- after all the reason we drive these cars is because we're really just 10 year olds making vroom vroom noises and having fun, so if sunroof delete gives you a better vroom-vroom feeling, then do it.
Unfortunately, we still have people that want to sound smart, feeling they should work for Porsche, and go off on major differences between P-car full roofs, ragtops, and cutouts..

There is a reason, for example, that my Cabrio weighs 150 lbs more than a Coupe. It's not the top. Chassis stiffening has been so commonly done that you basically have to know nothing about cars in general to keep spewing this old line.

Re: "We still have people that want to sound smart..."
Hey... cool... thanks for gathering up both of the best examples in a single post for us!


But in all seriousness... here is an article on the subject: https://www.carthrottle.com/post/sun...ce-and-safety/

Thanks Guys. I am waiting for a quote on the car. I will get the Power Steering plus removed. I have heard that before. I would like to get better seats. How does one switch them out? Is matching the leather a problem?
I would like the 14 way or 18 way seats if possible. It might cost an arm and a leg though,
I will let you know the price when I get the quote. I have to check for over revs too.
