    Apparently,, double side sticky pads work.. Can’t see it, surely the stream will rip it off and send it over the car when driving at speed...

    Think a lot use a strip of PPF and cover the whole plate plus a extra couple of inches around it...kiss..

    Still no front plate on mine but one of the guys was pulled up here by the cops and handed a 100 GBP fine..It was 50GBP a few month back..

    Your solution sounds good . The velcro one has been apparently  tested  on the German autobahn by one of the clients at my dealer . Nothing flew away ... to my surprise .   

    The good thing is I can take it off easily when on a track . Also , when I hibernated my car, I need to deposit the plates at the car administration in order to stop the road tax + collision insurance etc...   . So , I need to be able to take it off easily .

    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3 (2017)

    Good thinking too.

    The double sided sticky pads are a easy removal too, just wax off the sticky residue..

    Mind you at the speed I go nothing flies off indecision...

    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3 (2017)

    I have decided not to put a front plate on my GT3 ($75 parking ticket if caught, but I don't park on the street anyway).  Other than parking, no legal problem.  But if I had to use a plate, I'd probably use this mount that threads into the tow hook location:

    Danke DaveC / Gauss / Gnil / M3ike / Porker / Porsche-Jeck / RC / Spyderidol / ...

    As DaveC will confirm, the colour is a lot richer than pictures can show. Changes with different lighting. Will post more next weekend. @ Achim, Frank and Joël: we must team up am 'Ring soon!

    No front plate for me, just a sticker (right size and colour though). Have a 'proper' one in the frunk just in case.

    Had a lot of fun already with reactions on the different seats left and right. Love the outcome. 'My' car, period.

    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3 (2017)

    Yes, on purpose. We couldn't get the P03's here when I ordered (and only on the Touring) while that is the seat I prefer.

    Would even delete the passenger seat, but that's a bridge too far...

    Girlfriend likes the Vito most. Is only interested in the colour, not the spec.

    So, you would have gone for complete passenger seat “”delete’’, if allowed ?..But why not a folding bucket on the passenger side as well ?..

    Sorry in advance..Smiley..

    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3 (2017)

    Why does a car need to be 'balanced' (seat-wise)? Shall we all mount a second steering wheel? Had a guy freaking out over it until I pointed out the camera on the boot of his 3-series wasn't mounted in the middle.... Anyway, driving now. Maybe more 'explaining' later.

    Great photos!  Love the seating combo too, didn’t even know Porsche would do that. Naturally biased, but I think among the bolder historic colors the linden green works very well on the modern, larger 911.
