    Help! Looking for pics. Leather PCM & or

    Leather Seat backs! Black if possible! Thanks for your help.

    Re: Help! Looking for pics. Leather PCM & or

    I would go leather for the backs, especially with little kids seating behind. And even that requires care to stay in shape.

    The way the Adaptive Sport seats come without leather are much better for kids. With the leather you risk scratches and pulls on the stitching just because of where it is, trust me I've had both types & have 2 kids that often take rides w/ me. I know what holds up better but was hoping someone had pictures of the leather seatbacks because I'm debating it anyway....... Or pics of leather PCM.

    Re: Help! Looking for pics. Leather PCM & or

    Look in my photo album for the yellow 997tt on the 2nd page I believe. There are pictures of the leather PCM. Larry has leather seatbacks in his but is natural grey. I took pictures. Send me a PM with your email address and I'll send you some pictures.

    And again...

    Re: Help! Looking for pics. Leather PCM & or

    Here are my natural brown leather seat backs on my Adaptives.

    Re: Help! Looking for pics. Leather PCM & or

    Leather PCM...nothing like it:



    Plus Atomic Jason's thread on options has this in black, along with seatbacks.

    Re: Help! Looking for pics. Leather PCM & or

    That's a beautiful interior! I'm a Natural Brown fan, and I really like your trim choices. Very elegant.

    Re: Help! Looking for pics. Leather PCM & or

    Here's leather PCM at approx us$2300.

    Re: Help! Looking for pics. Leather PCM & or

    The STD Adaptive seat w/o the leather looks more sporty IMHO. I kind of like to have the back of the seat to look diff than interior.
    As far as the PCM in leather goes, I belive it will be more difficult to clean specailly as you will be using leather conditioner in between all those small buttons. my $0.02.

    BTW, love the interior of Dan's car.

    Re: Help! Looking for pics. Leather PCM & or

    Leather PCM is just so amazing...

    Porsche's exclusive department can really can do some amazing things, too bad it's a long list of overpriced options that are a headache to spec.

    They should organize all the deviating stiching/exclusive options into neat packages.

    Re: Help! Looking for pics. Leather PCM & or

    Granted, the painted seat backs are 'sportier' looking but I have always considered the Porsche 911 sporty enough as it is without going to that extreme. Having had full leather interior 911s before, I truly missed the quality that they provide, particularly when they virtually eliminated it on the A.S.S. seats, forcing you to spend another $1600 just to get the leather back. The plastic, no matter what color you paint it, is still "ABS plastic."

    Re: Help! Looking for pics. Leather PCM & or

    I still think that he should get the aluminum-look PCM option instead. He was talking about how it'd be a bit too dark if he were to get the leather PCM and I agree.

    I thought I was the only one who thought that. I agree I think the Adaptive Sport seat looks better stock with the contrast. I think that's why Porsche designed it like that in the first place. It looks sportier. The leather seat backs are really nice too, I was thinking about getting them but I actually like the stock look better. When you cover them in leather they look very much like the standard seats. And the leather PCM looks nice too but imho if you cover the PCM in leather you need to cover the seatbacks and doing so in a black car turns the interior very dark especially on a Triple black car

    Re: Help! Looking for pics. Leather PCM & or

    I had similar concerns in terms of matching the leather seat backs to the PCM for a sea blue interior. In the end, I think I'm going to order the air vent slats in aluminum look and the dash trim strip in leather.

    You agree about that right.

    The alum. look PCM is nice too but only if you get other alum. look parts like vent slats etc. It's too big a piece to be the only Alum look piece in the car(besides the other small pieces like on the shifter etc) And for my tastes it's a little too bright, doesn't blend in w/ the rest of the interior. Alum look stands out as the pieces your eyes go to & that's not what I want either.. Also as just a stand alone piece (Alum PCM) it doesn't go well with the rest of the interior I'm getting which will be all Carbon Fiber & added leather. CF Vents/ CF Trim strip & shifter/handbrake/CF Center consule/CF Door handles /CF Outer sills/CF B-pillar Belt outlets/ CF front of door finisher...... I don't like when finishes are mix & matched except for leather. Leather can be mixed/added to any finish (Alum or CF) and it looks good.

    If anyone has a picture of a Carbon Fiber center consule with the model logo storage compartment please post it, that combo and look is one of my favorite things about the interior I'm getting.

    Re: Help! Looking for pics. Leather PCM & or

    We can paint the pcm flat black for you after the fact too. A lot less expensive than any of these options.

    That looks good.

    You should also consider the Carbon vent package (don't have my option list here) it gives you carbon fiber vents & leather slats (which would look VERY COOL IN BLUE LEATHER) plus pieces of the upper dash in leather & defroster vents. I've seen this option on a blue interior and it really looks dynamite!

    Re: Help! Looking for pics. Leather PCM & or

    I like this look. It's not covering anything (except for leather slats which is extremely subtle), it's not trying to be something it's not. Add the other Carbon Fiber parts like center consule, Carbon Fiber on the doors etc. to round things out and you have a very purposeful built look.

    Re: Help! Looking for pics. Leather PCM & or

    Found one pic. w/ CF center but it doesn't show the storage compt. plus it's a tip.

    It's funny how plasticky the gear lever surround looks - too plasticky for a $150.000 car .

    You "want" "plasticky?" The stock visors put a smile on my face everytime I use them!

    Porsche's CF interior trim is supposedly alot heavier than their plastic BUT I definitely agree: there's ZERO reason they can't make the plastic look REEEEEALLY good.

    No kidding: take a look around you..., fine stores, expensive homes, other mfgr cars: plastic surface treatments can be quite amazingly impressive.

    Re: Help! Looking for pics. Leather PCM & or

    looks nice in nat brown.
