    Mike,
    I have a question.
    From some of the cabs I've seen if you don't order the leather sunvisors they come in black. But yours are tan.
    Are they leather ?



    Yes stradale, those are leather covered sun visors, it came xtra. Btw you asked for some more pics, will do so this afternoon



    That's what I thought.
    I have them coming on my car too.
    When you're taking the additional pictures could you get a couple for me of the visors ? -thanks.......



    Good choice Stradale! they make a big difference especially when it's in a cab! going to go take some pictures now

    Re: My new 997S Cab Black/Beige

    Mike,

    you live in Pretoria and have no electric fencing? WOW!
    Do you reside in Silver Lakes?
    Anyway I lived in east Pretoria a while ago. Porsches are quite rare down there, though a guy from my neighbourhood gave me a few rides in his pristine 1967 Targa.

    Take care and enjoy your new ride

    I live in a security estate not far too from Silver Lakes, wow the world is sure a small place. Did you use to be a citizen here? Yeah, most exotics are rare here, this is the 5th 997S Cab in the country. 1967 Targa is a great car too, must have been fun!

    I've got beams and guards around the house in anycase. The crime is quite bad here, but oh well, not much I can do about it

    I know, I also sometimes ask myself, how did I end up with all these black cars?! Hahaha! Well hopefully I will be able to add a little variation to the lot in November with the Ferrari At least the other 3 cars aren't black!

    Re: My new 997S Cab Black/Beige

    Mike,
    Have you, or did you, consider the center console painted black? IMO, that would look great with your color choices

    Re: My new 997S Cab Black/Beige

    You better have a good detailer then... I have a midnight blue 993 and that's already driving me crazy!

    Re: My new 997S Cab Black/Beige

    hey JP66,

    Yeah, i considered a lot of things (like having the dials black) but in the end after looking at all the different options you could already get with the car, i decided not to complicate the order (in fear of a mistake being made), so I just ticked off what I thought was neccessary. But it would have looked quite good with the center console in black
    and take into consideration... i live in Africa, having anything done aftermarket here to a car like this it kinda the end of your car if you know what i mean so i stuck with porsche options

    Re: My new 997S Cab Black/Beige

    Mike...I like your car parc ! Great to see all these photos.
    My wife is from Pietermaritzburg.. I haven' t seen a Porsche there!!
    I did see a GT3 aound Durban....

    wow, pietermaritzburg that's 550km away from where i stay. yes porsches are only really seen in Johannesburg/Pretoria(rarely) and in Cape Town. The other places in SA doesn't really have exotics

    Re: My new 997S Cab Black/Beige

    Great Pics Mike....Boy your dog is huge...Is it a lab or a lion :-)

    The leather visors look really good, a lot thicker and more luxurious...The standard ones are dreadful.....The other problem with the US ones are they have the most enormous airbag warning label that covers the ENTIRE vanity mirror cover.....

    Re: My new 997S Cab Black/Beige

    beautiful car, enjoy it!

    Congrats!

    Re: My new 997S Cab Black/Beige

    Very nice rolling stock! Love the forecasted addition of a Ferrari! And I love the colour combo for your 997S - I have a black on black coupe launch edition, and it is great to see the tan. I love it.

    Re: My new 997S Cab Black/Beige

    Brilliant, Mike.

    Optional chrome exhaust tips? they look THAT good.

    Leather matching seat backs? I thought you could only get the standard grey seatbacks or exterior body-color seatbacks.

    Re: My new 997S Cab Black/Beige

    hehehehe thanks again for the compliments guys, will post some driving impressions soon!

    @damain: i took and option with the rear center console in leather as well.

    Thanks Mike
    I think this option is overlooked. It's all in the details.

    Question: How did you get your avatar to change from pic to pic ?

    The standard seats come with interior color material on the back. I'm not sure if the standard seat backs are leather or vinyl. I do know that you get the silver seat backs on the "sport" and "adaptive sport seats".

    Re: My new 997S Cab Black/Beige

    cheers, Stradale. I recall that now.

    I'm all flummoxed...my beloved 19" Carrera Classics taking a thrashing on the 19" wheel Poll thread.

    Re: My new 997S Cab Black/Beige

    Haha, I agree Damian, the Carrera Classics are just so classic and pure in the design... the stock wheels are, well, ehm... no comment
