    He has the same look I had yesterday after a tetanus shot... indecision kiss

    Sun felt the same way when the dealer said your GT3  LWB must have stripes red or grey -  no  stripe delete!!

    why does P insist on such ricer sh.t?

    Delete the marketing dept.!!!!!

    Decals, or paint?

    It's on the alcantara seats, so it's dyed onto the fabric, I think...

    Well Watt, part of the blame is on you. Next time you see a dealer talking cars with a dog, take it as a sign of insanity and walk away... ;-)

    Haha,

    It would be the definition of insanity if the dealer didn't talk to Sun!  He's only done 9 deals there the last 3 yearsSmiley

    DaveGordon:

    I was a bit surprised when you wrote Sun would be having the buckets minus the stripe. I'd specced a car and couldn't find a delete option. Glad I'm not going mad (unlike the marketing dept).

    Yes, the insanity is all at Porsche for such a stupid move.  The dealer just came back to Sun and said the stripes could not be deleted.  SmileySmiley

    I happen to like the stripe. It adds elegance and contrast to another wise pedestrian interior. That's the reason most spec their cars with some sort of contrasting stitching. Eliminate the monochromatic appearance of the interior. 

    Its one of the main reasons why I am ordering the LWB. The very fashionable and unique stripe.kiss

    Oh? I was thinking exterior, like the GT3RS decal kit. I imagine there's no shortage of sheepskin seat covers available in NZ though. Smiley

     


    Re: SUN'S LAST RUN TO WILSON, WY - 991 C2S CAB LIFE, END OF AN ERA

    Watt, maybe you cant delete the stripe, but can you order it to be the same color as the rest of the interior? smiley

    Haha Joost

    you are promoted to Head of Marketing!!!

    Sun only spends 6 days on track a year but is thinking of switching from PCcB and silver wheels to steel brakes and platinum wheels, which happens to be $17k NZD cheaper as well.

    Any advice for him greatly appreciated 

     


    Re: SUN'S LAST RUN TO WILSON, WY - 991 C2S CAB LIFE, END OF AN ERA

    The platinum wheels on the GT Silver will look great, and they'll probably hide the mud that you like to drive through better!

    Watt, it is awesome seeing you provide shelter and love for the breed....
