    In Sweden it would be an environmental crime: Can be very expensive...

     

    I should have written "Could". After doing some research it looks like it is difficult for the police to really do anything about it. 
     

    Not much different in Germany.

    Example: Some people deactivated the Start/Stop automatic in the software of their cars, a process usually easily done with at the dealership, by giving the mechanic a small tip. Now this isn't possible anymore since car manufacturers blocked this feature from the "diagnosis" devices at dealerships. This action (deactivating start/stop) is considered to be tax fraud in Germany. A guy I know had his car towed by police because of a modded exhaust. They had to do a re-certification of sound/emissions at the TÜV and during that process, they noticed that Start/Stop was deactivated in the software. Long story short: They contacted the dealership and found out that the owner of the car had this done intentionally. In the end, he had to pay 40 EUR or so (I don't remember exactly but it was a rather small amount for the offense) for this. Unfortunately, he had to pay over 1000 EUR for the exhaust mod and the necessary re-certification, fines and whatnot. Smiley

    Don't forget that the UK has probably the cheapest base price on the whole planet . Maybe that can help if one needs to add  20k or so to get one . 

    In Switzerland the car would cost 196 £ and it is not because of taxes, as our VAT is 7.7 % 

    Interesting. That might be part of the explanation why UK volumes are so low for GT cars relative to market size.

    Are you suggesting for Porsche to raise their UK prices? Smiley Smiley

    To be fair , you do get a '' free'' Swiss pack that includes LED, sports chrono, dim mirrors, back camera , rain sensor , vital radio etc.....   + you get a rebate according to the Euro / CHf exchange rate . So it would be about 12 to 16k £ less at the end including all the goodies

    I've not seen a pic of lizard + gold wheels yet, other than the WP which are different (and believe me I have looked..). I reckon it will work but is the boldest choice. I am currently green with silver wheels.

    Re: OFFICIAL: 991.2 GT3 RS (2018)

    Green with gold wheels seem to be difficult, at least when looking at the configurator.


    Re: OFFICIAL: 991.2 GT3 RS (2018)

    Personally, I think that the aurum wheels suit darker colors better.


    Re: OFFICIAL: 991.2 GT3 RS (2018)

    green, gold, red, looks rastafari flag to me smiley fully approved kiss

    gold wheels will go better with dark or muted color. this lizard ''green yellowish'' hue is nothing but bold. it needs black wheels or platinum or silver.

    good luck with configuration

    I'd choose black rims without the green stripe: But then I'm a black rims guy.

     

    Screen Shot 2018-02-27 at 09.44.22.png

     

    This is an interesting combo. I'd try to repeat the green somewhere. Maybe remove the big script decal and replace it with a green GT3RS door logo - like on the GT2RS.

    Doesn't look bad but I think we all have the association more of British green type darker green with the gold wheels so this light green seems strange for some reason. A bit risky IMO.
