    The colour of the wheels is nice but the wheel design is inharmonious together with this body style.

    Agree. The TDF wheels look better. Oh and  BTW @nberry on the right colour gold wheels look great too

    IMG_7308.jpeg

    On the contrary this photo only proves my point. What do you first see when you look at this photo? Garish gold wheels which subsume the lines of the car. Btw, I hope this isn’t one of your cars.Smiley

    I think you suffer from anti-Trump goldism, you dismiss anything golden, caused by Trumpism. Smiley SmileySmiley

    What's worse is that the wheels will be pointing the other way on the other side of the car. 

    OCD in me needs the wheels to point and twist the same way on both sides of the car.

    Agree, that's why I like straight spokes on a wheel. 

    The TdF wheels in gunmetal would look great on the green beast. 

    Or something like this:

    Here's on in Verde British with grey tdf-wheels, it's certainly nice but I'm certainly happy enough on black tdf's not to go through the hassle of changing them.

    These are the standard wheels on the 812 and they are made in handed form for the left and right side of the car so that they point in the same way on both sides of the car.

    Re: Wandered to the dark side

    I've thought about it but I don't think it's much use on an 812 wouldn't get anywhere in properly bad weather, no matter the tires. It's not like a could go skiing with one, so I'd rather keep it on fun tires to use when the weather is suitable.

    Unfortunately the police magnet didn't seem to be hidden inside the Olive 911, it must have been placed somewhere inside me... angry


    I might be a bit late to the party but... congrats on that terrific machine. Curious how long you can stay without Porsche though. 

    Regarding that police magnet, I am pretty sure it is hidden in your shoe. The right one, to be specific.

    Yes, very nice the contrast with the setting.

    Is the side-skirt scratched or just dirty?

    Re: Wandered to the dark side

    The skirts are in a different material to the car itself, it's a matte plastic perhaps that's what you see?

    Î…When I zoomed in fully, I realised it's an optical illusion i.e. daylight from underneath the car and it looks like a white scratch along the sideskirt.

    Thinking back on it, you wouldn't fail noticing it if such blemish really existed on this magnificent body Smiley
