    Thanks 

    I am going a bit nuts with my configuration . Last night wanted to change it all for black Smiley

    For the moment I have LG with WP . I can always change colors later , nothing is blocked for the moment . Only thing I would feel bad to change is dropping WP as that took quite some work on my dealer to be able to get it , as he had to change my allocation for another one ( mine was due in May but no WP built before June ) 

    Right now I might foil the black WP roof in green  Smiley

    What I would also like is to see some photos of the Aurum rims . Impossible to find any except for the one on the black car in the brochure . Strange, as they are supposed to be the standard color Smiley

    You got my vote! indecision

    I would have preferred the black exhaust as on the  2GT3 but weight is weight which is of little interest to me.

    Would never live in such a place, the Starbucks are too far apart...

    This past Winter, one drove several times in conditions far worse.   With a modicum of driving skills and great winters tires one safely made the trips.

    Update on WP : there is a light pack where you keep the homolgsted FIA roll cage instead of getting the titanium. Dealer highly advices to keep the homologated one . 

    Darius :  congrats ! 

    About the rims : I think Chris Harris ‘ s don’t have the correct color !!?? 

    As the above , they don’t exist is real life ;-)  the light weight ones for the GT3 are more silver looking. 
    --

    WP can be provided with steel cage but loose the interest of the weight saving. if you dont plan to race, just tage the titanium one. Smiley

    Chris Harris wheels color looks like a personal color choice close to copper, Aurum metallic from the RS will be different as I suspect it will be the same color as the macan...mild goldish.Smiley

    which lightweight for the GT3 are you talking about?

    The magnesium rims got the GT3 RS. They are not goldish like the ones for the GT2. They are looking more silver. 

    Dealer advided strongly to keep steel roll cage for resale. On Switzerland people use the RS mostly on track and quite a few like to race them

    How did you find it in real life   ? I am a bit worried about too much contrast specially on the roof and also the it makes the car looks very busy

    Re: OFFICIAL: 991.2 GT3 RS (2018)

    I think the Weissach package on LG looks horrible. To drive a car that looks like it came from a collision shop who ran out of paint in order to save some weight is a huge mistake. I ordered my car just like the launch model in Geneva. No frills or add ons.

    Re: OFFICIAL: 991.2 GT3 RS (2018)

    The WP tends to make it look more ‘’lumpy’’. And the WP rims certainly do not cut it, standard ones look more fitting for what the RS is...

    Locked like in “ I can’t change my specs anymore “ ?  I have a production code, but I can still change all my specs. 

    Before I changed to the WP ,  I had a May production ( first car at my dealer ) and I was allowed to change the specs until April 24.

    Yep, I meant you can't change your spec, so you can then, good. Smiley.

    Its just you seem really not that convinced with the WP.. I wouldn't either. Tough decision. Main thing is the fact you have an allocation so not first world problems is it Smiley...

    Re: OFFICIAL: 991.2 GT3 RS (2018)

    I think WP looks better in silver. Certainly not LG. Honestly, how much will your time improve on the track with the WP? Is it that important to make you drive around in a car you're not totally happy with?

    Won’t change anything about time  . The reason that made me change my initial choice to a WP is to make the new car the most different possible to my current one  .

    That's a good reason. You should consider a different color if you're going with WP.

    Gnil, fair enough. But hard to believe in a country where there is not even a single track.

    To give you an idea , my dealer organized already two track events this spring. One was in Estoril , and one in Mugello. 

    Next one is Barcelona , then Paul Ricard , then Dijon , then Paul Ricard  again , and inbetween there is also Imola and spa .  Usually at least 10 cars are sent on trucks from custumoers at my dealer. And it is like that with all main Porsche dealers linked with the Porsche clubs. 

    And for the Racing championship they also use all these tracks

    Re: OFFICIAL: 991.2 GT3 RS (2018)

    Just kidding. I know many Swiss people as serious racers.

    We know as well the Swiss for their sense of money/investment so I suspect resale value probably very serious as well when it comes to spec a car...
