    That will look great!  One word of advice - leave them at home when you go to the track (had one pop off last time).  Also, you can easily check that the center locking mechanism has popped out (correctly) when track driving, without the cap blocking the view.

    Me and Dave noticed a few cars last time at the track with a missing cap . 

    It never happened to me nor to him and we have done quite a few track days over the last 3 years 

    Don't you need a special tool to take them off ?

    New car. Apparently for German market only. List price. 

    If any member from Germany is interested contact PZ Lübeck.

    The car includes the special tool - you will find it inside the center lock socket under the cover in the front storage area (the part you remove to access things like the battery and brake fluid).  Under a round plastic cap on driver's side of the car. Takes only a few seconds to remove and replace the car (unlike the center-locks themselves).

    Re: OFFICIAL: 991.2 GT3 RS (2018)

    I think people just leave them off at the track if they are expecting to change wheels - one less thing to lose.

    You must not drive without a cap, because dirt can come inside and do damage. You can find this info in owners manual of yours Porsche too 


    Re: OFFICIAL: 991.2 GT3 RS (2018)

    I was going to mention that seems like a risk, given there’s a requirement to strip, clean, re-grease them fairly frequently. There is a rubber o-ring in the cap to keep dirt and dust out.

    Well, then I strongly recommend cleaning the inside of the cap and area where it seats with alcohol before a track day.  Any moisture in there will expand with temperature and pop off the cap when driving (you'll never find it - at least I didn't).

    Center locks... no functional advantage, but at least they look cool... until they pop off  Not to mention the need to drive around with a 1.5 meter torque wrench in the passenger seat angryindecision

    I'll walk out and admire the five lug bolts on the GTS now...

    I am no fan of center locks for sure, but just to be clear, I am talking about the little plastic dust cap that says "GT3".  The actual center-lock did not pop off or I wouldn't be here Smiley

    900 km .  From the drive trains, suspensions , steering and engine , the whole car feels just a bit better in every aspect compared to .1 

    Can't say too much about the engine as not finished the break in  . The biggest difference are the suspensions . Firmer but at the same time they absorb the bumps better
