    Only the CGT 918, 550 spider and Mercedes Gulwing look good in silver. On other cars, getting silver is like saying you couldn't choose an actual color for your car... angry

    I'd best go for silver then, because I can't!!..Smiley Smiley

    ...but bracing myself for the cost of 088 GTS interior package! Smiley SWMBO and ISUK agree on this option, so who am I, a mere mortal, to argue?  Smiley.   Still I work for a major defence contractor so used to budgets going out of the window Smiley.

    is it a decision on whether to buy a GTS or what colour/spec for the GTS you have decided to buy?

    why 3 days?

    Both. Off to Porsche Centre Swindon on Saturday, in 3 days time, to hopefully make BOTH decisions. Appointment made for a test drive their demonstrator which is being brought down from its home in OPC Tewkesbury Smiley

    Re: Boxster GTS - evo magazine

    So is that a Tewkesbury Edition GTS? indecision


    Re: Boxster GTS - evo magazine

    If you ditch the alcantara it becomes just a normal leather interior with deviated stitching which is not at all unique so rather pointless IMHO yes


    Re: Boxster GTS - evo magazine

     I guess it depends if you are a fan of "Alcantara" .  I think it might be heading for extinction, its been so over used by every maker that its uniqueness is long past, its just artificial micro fiber suede anyway, yes? As for the GTS embroidery in the headrests, somehow that just looks a bit overwrought for a Porsche. The owner knows its a GTS so why bother with the headrest "reminder"??.indecision

    JimFlat6:

    ... [Alcantara is] just artificial micro fiber suede anyway, yes? ...

    Pretty much. No idea why it's as expensive as it is. It has to be a lot cheaper than quality leather to produce.

    The noise with the roof down and PSE switched open must be pretty outrageous indecision  I'm guessing that was a major factor in making the decision to buy pretty easy

    Absolutely amazing Iain, honestly the evo video which I started this thread with really doesn't do it justice at all. We were lucky with the weather and had the roof down, the pops and crackles out of the exhaust are really loud, and the bellow on acceleration is truly unbelievable. I simply couldn't stop laughing! It's a long time since I've heard a sound like it. The way the latest PDK blips the throttle in sport plus makes it sound even better, the blip on down shifting is immediately followed by the pops and crackles. You are going to simply love it! Smiley

    Re: Boxster GTS - evo magazine

    I've owned a few noisy Italian cars so am well used to nice exhaust sounds but the roar from the GTS when my salesman started it up with the PSE on inside the valeting building they have was just  incredible for a Porsche kiss Look forward to hearing what spec you've gone with.

    I remember going to test drive the Gallardo 8 years ago and the salesman took us off the M6 onto the M54, dropped both side windows and floored it. I was writing a cheque instantly after that and think many GTS buyers will feel the same if an astute sales person does the same thing.

    We're picking the Cayman up on Tuesday as I can't be bothered with the September 1st malarkey. I'll likely go over in the 4C which is pretty loud itself but no doubt Steph will drown me out on the way home in her new car smiley
