    Re: 992 GT3

    Why not buying it LHD? Since Cyprus is in the EU you will have easier time to find a buyer withing the EU. Similar to Japan where most exotics are LHDs in the RHD country.


    Re: 992 GT3

    You are not allowed, to order a LHD car here.  Just like when I was living in Lebanon and had a GT3 RS on order and was moving to cyprus, I asked to switch it to RHD and wasn't allowed. They worry that you will buy to re sell in another market.  Not sure if Japan is different. Also insurance in Cyprus for a LHD car is about 3 times the price of a RHD car. We had this issue with my father in law's Speciale when he moved to Cyprus as well.


    Re: 992 GT3

    Unfortunately the typical GT colours like yellow, orange, green and red don't blend well with the large amount of unpainted black plastic which characterizes the 992 GT3 style.

    I've seen the shark blue in the showroom and although it is an interesting colour as such, it highlights the plasticky design even more. It makes the whole car look very rough and ready.

    Agate is a very nice colour, it blends well with black and in sunny Cyprus with plenty of natural light all year round (where Moser is going to use the car), the colour will not be at all dull and sombre.

    Perhaps I would go for the silver wheels instead of the dark silver and definitely exclude black.

    Actually Agate Grey is my favourite colour on any 992, given the increased size and mass of the current 911.

    Re: 992 GT3

    Agate is a great color, and it looks really nice when it’s sunny. 
    Had it on the Macan, which also had some black plastic parts, and it minimized them well. 
    If PTS is an option, consider British Racing Green, looked really good in the photos.

    I like the look. kiss

    Re: 992 GT3

    Looks great Grant!  My car has been sitting at the port in Emden since 7/19 waiting for a boat.  Hopefully it gets on one soon...

    They must have just uploaded pics, here’s mine, feel like I won the tire lottery with Michelin’s

    Re: 992 GT3

    Thanks, guys!  Yeah I was initially disappointed with the Pirellis (but don’t know anything about them).  Then I remembered that I’ll be buying new tires frequently (so might as well try them all) indecision

    Cool to be able to see your car like that :-)

    Congrats!


    Re: 992 GT3

    Is that Cup 2 R?

    How do you order them?

    Is there a option code?


    Re: 992 GT3

    Both cars look beautiful from this angle. Congrats to the happy owners!

    I think they are regular Cup 2's as I didn't select any option for the tires.  Hard to tell zoomed in, but I only see one digit after Cup on the tires.  Not sure how to option the R's as I never noticed any option for them on the configurator when I choose my options.

    No cars come standard with the R.  

    But you can order them on any, at least in Europe, tire dealer .

    Re: 992 GT3

    If you zoom in, there is some digit or number after the 2.

    You better believe it!  She's going to get quite the cleaning, but then heads to the track (hopefully) late September.

    As for sounding like a turbo there are ways to change that...

    @Enmanuel, I thought you might like the scoop on the wheels Smiley

    I can’t breathe, I can’t breathe. How did you guys spec the interiors?

    Thanks again for all the nice comments from everyone.

    Pretty boring options for me:

    Carbon Bucket Seats, Red seat belts, Red Fire Extinguisher, Black Brushed Aluminum trim (didn't want anything reflective and this was free).

    First time I didn't order full leather, but it has gotten expensive and I don't think I'll miss it.

    Both cars are probably the best color choices. Congratulations to both of. I’m sure the performance will not disappoint either of you. Grant, when do you pick it up?
