    Aluminum Look Exterior Trim

    Do you think this option adds or detracts?

    Re: Aluminum Look Exterior Trim

    Neither to me. It's nice, but I like the body colored gills. It would add a nice individuality, but I would personally pass on it.

    Re: Aluminum Look Exterior Trim

    I dont like

    Re: Aluminum Look Exterior Trim

    I like it, may be in basalt black with those aluminium looks good

    And may be its a bit flashy

    Re: Aluminum Look Exterior Trim

    i dont like the little alu lit under the front bumper at all

    Re: Aluminum Look Exterior Trim

    Anyone noticed that the lower arm of the side mirror is also alu-colored?

    Re: Aluminum Look Exterior Trim

    Don't like very cheap looking

    Re: Aluminum Look Exterior Trim

    Gee, I hadn't noticed that! I only saw the front grill, the front lip and the side grill (between the rear wheel and the door).

    Re: Aluminum Look Exterior Trim

    Thumbs down!

    Draws attention to the cheesy Hyundai/VW foglights. Plenty of Boxster owners would kill for the Cayman's body-colored side intakes and now this. Finally, the aluminum accents on a SY background is probably not the best sample - clashes a bit. Might be different with a blue or grey but I'll pass.

    Re: Aluminum Look Exterior Trim

    Would look much better in Black IMO

    Re: Aluminum Look Exterior Trim

    Bling, bling....

    Re: Aluminum Look Dork Bait

    If the factory called it the "Silver Plastic" option instead of "Aluminum Look" trim option who would buy it?

    Notice the Silver Plastic steering wheel trim. Thats certainly "form follows function" isnt it? Has Porsche gone off their nut or just identified a unique mental segment of their new car buyers?

    So many Porsche factory options are just pure dork bait and Porsche doesnt mind stooping to grab at dork money.

    In a lot of ways Porsche is getting cheesier than GM, and thats pretty stinkin low.

    Re: Aluminum Look Dork Bait

    very nice imo

    Re: Aluminum Look Dork Bait

    I rest my case.

    Re: Aluminum Look Dork Bait

    The aluminum definitely clashes with speed yellow, but I would avoid it with any color.

    Re: Aluminum Look Dork Bait

    I agree with Jim, hard to understand why would anyone pay for it but its about giving people options. we should create the non-marketing-correct option list, here are some ideas:

    Exterior Silver Plastic look (just in case there was not enough platic in your car )

    Loud-sports-engine-sound (soon to be provided by BOSE loud speaker attached to aluminum look grill - only possible if platic-look selected for exterior ) 3 settings, Ferrari-sound like, lambo-sound and VW Golf GTI-sound as standard) Modification required if you want loud-engine sound all the time - kindly provided at Rennteam for no additional cost.

    Re: Aluminum Look Exterior Trim

    It looks fine until you get to the grill slats.....then it looks cheap.

    I believe something also changes on the back spoiler.....like the bottom half is aluminum or something.

    Detracts, leave it as original or paint body colour.

    Re: Aluminum Look Exterior Trim

    Re: Aluminum Look Dork Bait

    Porsche will charge $$$ to add optional alum colored gills on the Cayman and the same $$$ to add optional body colored gills on the 897 Boxster soon. They get your moolah coming and going !

    Save some money - go arctic or GT silver and voila! body coloured grilles - well near enough anyway.
