    Seat inlay, deviating color

    Get to spec my car soon, and thinking meteor gray with 2 tone black/terracotta interior. However, even with 2 tone the terracotta is a bit overwhelming for my taste so I plan to break it up with some black here and there: on the PCM and deviating black carpets for example(thanks to Red430 for this idea!). I'm also thinking of adding some black alcantara, to handbrake, gearshift and seat backs for starters and perhaps the seat inlays, which I believe is code 25231. I've never seen what a deviating seat inlay looks like and I wonder if anyone out there has a photo or some experience with this or a similar option?

    Re: Seat inlay, deviating color

    This photo (previously posted by Red430) is along the lines of what I want to do.

    Re: Seat inlay, deviating color

    Here is a picture of a Cayman with an Alcantera seat inlay.
    The car was found at this link:

    Thanks Roy, now I'm not so sure. Looks a bit overwhelming in the Cayman. The terracotta steering wheel doesn't do a lot for the look. And terracotta appears a lot better in some lighting conditions, and not so good in others!

    yuuuuuuuuck, yuck, yuck.

    Re: Seat inlay, deviating color

    Agree with your comment intouch! Just flicked back and took a look at the shots of your totally terracotta interior which looks great. Your shade of terracotta looks a lot more subtle, less orange. Perhaps the Cayman photos don't do it justice. Are you totally happy with the terracotta now you have lived with it for a while?

    Hope you got your tip issues sorted out OK!

    hey nickoz,

    the full terracotta interior is just awesome. it feels special and exquisite. everybody who saw the car in person complemented me on how fine and exclusive the interior is.
    that was also the reaction from friends that own other 997's or F430's.

    Just make sure you get a many exclusive leather parts as your budget will allow...pcm, handbrake leather, aluminium, door sills, front and rear center console, steering wheel box cover, tachometer cover etc....

    As to the transmission, i did not and do not havea problem with it. i just wanted to know how torque-braking may harm the tranny if done too often.

    good luck with your decision...
