Haven't gotten to any of this yet; been chasing the perfect color for the refinish. And I'm just too lazy to replace the letters -- meticulousness is not my forte. May take it to a bodyshop.
Does this grill have the area removed in the slats for the third brake light? Or are all the slats complete and the same?

Have had my driver's seat stuffed with memory foam to provide more lumbar support and cushioning behind the knees. I have had a fair few back problems and the 4-way sports plus seats I have left me aching after long journeys and just never felt quite supportive enough.

I went up to Autotrim in Manchester and spent an hour driving around with different numbers of foam slabs in different places. Once I settled on a configuration they rebuilt the seat for me. I'll post some photos tomorrow if it's dry enough to put the top down, but Autotrim's workmanship was first rate. The seat looks like it came 'enhanced' from the factory - they cut and stitched in new bits of alcantara and everything.

Anyway, it now feels unbelievably good. Kind of like sitting on a very supportive cloud, or like the car is giving me a hug each time I get in it. Which is nice. I really do recommend Autotrim for anyone in the UK. I made a 300-mile round trip to see them (I know poor me, right?) and it was totally worth it. They do all kinds of interior repairs and replacements and also offered to sell me the yellow seat belts I wanted for way less than Porsche charge (sadly, those had already arrived at the dealer).
Unusual, yes - but very creative. Thanks for the idea (being a southern boy I'll have to demonstrate restraint to not attempt a duct tape solution) {we need a redneck emoticon}

Maybe look up 'Jeremy Corbyn' before becoming too worried about that...

I went with the Carbon Fiber look. You might call him to check on your order. I have not received them yet. Web site says they will ship in 3-5 business days. I finally got a hold of him after 2 emails and a phone call. He said he was backed up with orders so I will give him the benefit of doubt.

I thought about the CF, but he sent me a pic of the regular one on a GT3, and I liked the looks of it. I got the same song and dance yesterday, about being backed up, due to racing season orders. It's going to be over two weeks, by the time they get here next week. I was really hoping to have them for an event this weekend.

I'm getting a little concerned. Dan told me mine would ship two days ago. As far as I know it has not shipped. My credit card has not been billed yet. If not here next week I will cancel the order.

If not shipped by Monday, I'm getting these instead.

I'll have my PPF guy install them, and be done with it.
