Did you not spec the car yourself? Why are you making so many cosmetic modifications?

no i didnít spec my 4S. There are hardly any around. About 1 4S for every 10 regular Panameras.
i just grabbed one that had the sport options I wanted since there is very few selections available.
Will do next time. Unless thereís a GTS available by then. Then itíll have everything i want pretty much

a SA told me few months ago there was a fire at the plant where the 4S engines were made, thus limited availability.

I ordered an Ď18 4S in Sept. and the build lock date kept changing. They finally told me the exact same thing about delays due to a fire. I ended up just canceling the order.

Color looks awesome in pics have not seen it IRL on Panamera. Seen a bunch of sapphire Macans. I like your black badges. Did you ever consider bumper plugs for the side markers? Little pricey but the look is so clean.

Looks good, the darker colors work great with that blue (adding custom touches is half the fun :-)

bumper plugs were only round i thought. You could always paint the sidemarkers at a body shop but youíd still see the outlined shape of that marker. So it wouldnít be as clean a the euro non marker version. Plus the black matches the glossy black accents the car has so I donít mind it. As long as that orange is gone!
ive done this on my old cayenne and wifeís macan. Looks better than stock

Bumperplugs are OEM sidemarkers put through a 19-step paint process to match the factory paint. I have them on my Ď15 and theyíre available for Ď17 + as well...

Changed the center caps to glossy black now to better match my dark theme, but now decided to get my wheels painted glossy black by the dealer. Saw an older panamera 970 with black rims that were painted by the dealer. My dealer says it wonít affect the lease turn in since itís more desirable for their re sale
