The 991.2 rear view mirror is a slimmer design than the one that came with the 991.1. It looks very nice. Has anyone replaced the .1 mirror with the .2? Suncoast suggests that professional installation is recommended. Is that really necessary? Thanks.

This is Brixton Forged Wheels. The model is WR3, targa series 3 piece in a finish called carbon bronze.

The spokes are brushed finished and the barrel is polished.

Lightweight titanium hardware.

Some people have asked about offsets, and unfortunately I do not know them. I can email brixton and ask. I asked them for a flush look but one that will not compromise drivability.

For my 991.2 GTS whose production has not yet been started, a Precision Instruments torque wrench and breaker bar, and Castrol center lock grease. Say what you will about center locks, to me they are super cool and help to define the vehicle. Ask me how I think in about a year.

Default Question re: Targa GTS

TorqueChap. About to place an order for GTS coupe. MSRP around $142K.
Live in South Jersey and wonder where you purchased your Targa and the discount off of list you received. Also, love the wheels. Would you mind sharing model/manufacturer?
Also, Sorry but don't understand term "X" options.
Thanks!

Yup. Confirmed. Car looks sick. I really like the offsets. Looks flush without being over-aggressive. I'm not a fan of overly-aggressive offsets to the point where the wheel and tires protrude too much. Reminds me of hot wheel toy cars from when I was a kid. Yours look perfect.
