    Is Option XD9 Rims/Caps to Body Color Unavailable

    I want to spec my car with blacked out rims/caps. My dealer has informed me that Option XD9 rims and caps to color is unavailable. Whats up with that ? Anybody hear of that ?

    Re: Is Option XD9 Rims/Caps to Body Color Unavaila

    last fall my dealer told me black wheels would be unavailable until further notice, apparently it is still embargoed!

    Re: Is Option XD9 Rims/Caps to Body Color Unavaila

    Bummer. I guess I can go aftermarket, but I'd prefer not to do so right out of the box. I figured I'd give it a year or so before I slapped on the 20" wheels and a mild tuning pkg. Maybe Porsche NA will permit the option by my May build date.

    This stuff is common when a model is relatively new, they are still ironing out the kinks in the production process and cannot fulfill too many highly specialized orders.

    Re: Is Option XD9 Rims/Caps to Body Color Unavaila

    The paint Porsche puts on the wheels is so thin it will chip and crack easily. Get them done by a pro after delivery, you'll be happier and spend less money.

    Eric,

    Whats the cost of blacking out the OEM rims/caps aftermarket (versus say buying a new set of 20" blacked out rims/caps aftermarket - which also means new rubber). I'm in LI, NY - anyplace qualified to do the OEM rims/caps around me ?

    Re: Is Option XD9 Rims/Caps to Body Color Unavaila

    Typical costs can run $250-$300/wheel if done professionally. All depends on the design of the wheel and how much is being painted.
