    First mad dash to the dealers...

    Ended up doing this last time, lost confidence in some of my aesthetic choices so ended up driving round to see how they looked in the flesh.

    Well, despite continually review the pics of the Cobalt Blue I'm having doubts again - looked fantastic under the show lights, but in the real world?

    My dealer has a Cobalt 996 on the lot, a guards red boxster, an Atlas boxster and I had seal grey before so can remember that - and these were my 'short listed' colour choices. So I'm diving down there first thing Sat am, it's only a 120 mile round trip, but hey... the fun of speccing!

    Re: First mad dash to the dealers...

    I still think cobalt with grey leather and blue roof would look brill BUT for the extra Pounds1k that the special colour costs you could go for some kit that could improve the drive - PASM, for example. After much agonising I've put that back on mine. A Porsche saleman must have the patience of a saint - but then it's a job made in heaven
    Just a thought if it is a 996 pram in cobalt it's been there a fair time.

    Re: First mad dash to the dealers...

    cobalt is a very nice colour, a great alternative is guards red, or flat black, or silver (but thats overdone), all classic porsche colours. good luck!

    Re: First mad dash to the dealers...

    best thing to do is to see the color in flesh ,and then follow your feelings.good luck and enjoy!

    Re: First mad dash to the dealers...

    Just phoned my dealer to make sure he car was still there - Cobalt Blue 996 Cab. Yep, but they've moved it into the showroom and I need to see the colour under natural l ighting. Getting there first thing tomorrow, hopefully can persuade them to turn the lights off for me Think I saw a car this colour at the weekend and it didn't look as 'strong' as it did in Paris....

    Re: First mad dash to the dealers...

    you are right to see the car under natural lighting ,any color inside the showroom will look gorgeous
