door and window trim on. Tinted taillights and panamera 4S logo too. Lastly will be the black Porsche lettering when parts come in. The door trim was able to be done without popping off the door panels. Iíll do the Porsche letters myself when that black plastic trim piece arrives. It comes black and have to stick the black glossy letters myself.

you can see the spacers align the wheels nicely with fender here too.

itís the factory molding. No way a wrap would look this shiny and smooth. Wraps are ok but will always have those vinyl ripples and not be as glossy. Dealer installed the trim.

I love the look of your black trim around windows. I have a Black 2017 Panamera Turbo with the bright aluminum trim around windows...it would look great with the black trim. Give me an idea of the cost from your dealer. Is it new trim parts?....or a black treatment over the OEM aluminum trim?

the factory parts cost just under $1500 and labor was about 1.5 hours for the window. Problem is the door trim. I changed those out too. Only way to get those parts is order the whole unpainted door handle $169 each plus 2 hours labor to install. Labor is $200-300 per hour at the dealer. Not cheap but looks so much better. For the door trim my dealer made a tool to unscrew the trim from the outside. Otherwise they would have had to taken the door panels off from the inside and would have more than doubled the labor hours. Not a easy thing to do overall

Wouldn't it be easier and cheaper to have the chrome wrapped?

definitely but it wouldnít be as smooth. Wraps are always wavey when looked upon up close. Plus the wrap on the door handles would get scratched up and need replacement every once in a while.

Love the car. My e hybrid is set to arrive..probably never.. but if it does was wondering how you like your spacers? Feel any difference with high speed/cornering? Really like the flush look but don't want to do it if its gonna mess something up. Thanks!

Perfect ride with these spacers no problems. Iíve had ecs tuning ones last in a cayenne and for some reason had some vibration in the steering wheel.

ditto, that's one thing i noticed too. That's the way it was with the older Panamera's (like mine)

Nice job overall!
