    Front Spoiler and side air vents

    I am working the specs of my 987 s and was wondering if I am the only one that feels that the grill in the front spoiler should be either red or black instead of titanium and the side vents in red as 986 2003?
    Also, what do you guys feel about the fog lights in the front?
    I have to admit I love the new 987 except the front spoiler, I feel the 997 spoiler is much better finished.
    Hopefully Gemballa or Techart can produce a nicer one.

    Re: Front Spoiler and side air vents

    I should have added that I am ordering a Red 987 S. I guess it would not make sense otherwise.

    Agree about the side vents, should defo be color co-ordinated. Ive ordered a silver car so it doesnt really matter so much, but I think I'd have probably chosen black if It wasnt for air vent.

    As for the front, I actually really like it and think the lights look better than those on the 997. Much sportier.

    It's obviously a name thing...

    ... I would have ordered black if it wasn't for the 'titanium' coloured grills.

    And I too like the more agressive look of the front of the car

    my guess is that the guys from exclusive could paint the side vents if requested right?

    My guess is that within 12 months the following options will appear in the price list :-

    Colour coded side vents Pounds400
    Sport chrono - special order stop watch wart deletion Pounds150

    and remember there's already the "Paint the car to match the vents option"

    Special paint (any colour you like) Pounds3,500. Only to be considered by people who can afford cobalt blue.

    And by the way - if you see skid marks disappearing into a field off the Wimborne roundabout it was only me getting carried away with my sport chrono test drive tomorrow

    Re: side vents

    Dreamcar, let me know about the sport chrono, that's another one I am not sure about.

    Hi Senraar

    New post just completed with my thoughts on this. Hope it's useful. It's only my opinion and I am sure others here, RC for one, who is more experienced than me, may disagree!

    Re: side vents

    Im no expert on photoshop, but what do you think?



    Re: side vents

    Much better. Well worth the Pounds400 Porsche will charge next year for colour coding And I was right RC doesn't agree with me on sport chrono

    Re: side vents

    I've read that some UK OPCs are telling customers that they'll colour code the vents for free. Doesn't apply to me with my arctic silver car though.
