    Re: Opinion on car and color....???

    I like except I'd advise going with black floormats and a black dash top.

    "Rear Center Console Painted Exterior Color"

    I think this option is better on roadsters. The 356, 550, the Boxster it looks appropriate. Your 911 is a luxury performance car so looking at the a painted body panel (which is what that's supposed to represent)is kinda out of place.

    Oh, you did see terracotta in person? Judging from the photos (only time I ever saw it) I would be very cautions about ordering it without _seeing_ it in person.

    you owe me $.02 (voluntary)

    I agree, this would tone down the already, um , ugly terracota...

    It's your car, so don't ask !

    The car should be just as you want it to be. After all, you'll be driving it.

    Re: Opinion on car and color....???

    Slate grey is a great color and will match with Terracotta better than the other greys out there such as Seal, Atlas, etc., but it definitely goes better with Silver and Black though. Did you think about Slate/Cocoa? Since Slate has a bit of a brownish/green undertone the Cocoa would really look good......just a thought.

    As others have said though.....if you like it the way it is.....enjoy!

    Re: Opinion on car and color....???

    I saw Terracotta once in a car mag and it looked superb but every other picture since has looked yuk in my opinion, so I strongly suggest you check it out in the flesh. Could be a big mistake. Have you not thought about cocoa interior, really works well with grey or silver

    Re: Opinion on car and color....???

    That's in topgear magazine and it was in seal grey, and I think it would look much better in GT Silver, and Slate Grey would be good too.
