    Color choices

    My first post so hello all

    My delivery is due in September so I need to decide on a colour now. My dealer says that there are a new batch of colours available from October which is the start of the 06 model year (in the UK). The new colours will include polar silver which is awesome.

    Does anyone know what other colours are coming with 06 model and are there are changes or new options?

    Cheers
    Paul

    Re: Color choices

    You know what? I'd just delay the order as long as possible and plan on getting delivery of the car in, say, March or April. I'm betting the weather where you are in the UK starts to suck a month after you get it as planned and you'll have to garage the car most of the time anyway?

    Delaying your order and delivery for the nice weather might also get you the chance to get delayed options like tire pressure monitoring, etc AND a better more glitch-free car?

    Just an idea. It might work for you.

    Re: Color choices

    I hope what you say is true.....Polar Silver is awesome and the only Silver I would pay extra money for.

    Hi Pink panther and welcome.
    Polar is worth waiting for, matey, it is very nice, you can really see the light blue coming off under the sun, my 996 is polar and it was a "special" color option when I ordered it, expensive but worth it and rare.
    I also love Seal but the "Commonality" of the color is bit of a shame (a lot of 996/ 997 are seal), although if you like it, go for it.
    Basically, I like metallic paint that reflect other colors under different lightning conditions.
    Basalt is also like that too, it's black but under the sun, you can see some different shades coming out too, very nice.
    Will your car be a cab?
    If yes, there's plenty of nice combos to play with, with the soft top color too!

    Re: Color choices

    I'm going for the coupe and will very likely go for polar silver. I'm going to pick some options tomorrow and will be testing sports exhaust and auto (though I am 99% sure I'll choose a manual).

    Re: Color choices

    Hey Pink, here is a comparison of my Polar Silver 993 vs my Artic Silver 997. Both very nice colors. The Polar Silver looks very blue under some lighting conditions, just a warning.

    Great pics, Texas911! Congrats, great combo, terrific to see them side by side. Thanks for sharing!

    Re: Color choices

    It was nice to be reminded of just how beautiful the 993 was!

    Re: Color choices

    It's really a superb and very unusual color. Looks like it glows with the right lightning conditions
