    Re: Instrument dials in guards red option

    Are you absolutely sure that you want 4WD instead of the 2? Are you thinking of the occasional time you're out there in snow and ice and want 4WD pull and push instead of merely push from the 2?

    I would spend a little time with my local dealer driving the 4 more to see if that is truly what you need/want.

    I think the red dials will be over the top, and you will constantly miss things on it as you seek our what the dials are telling you. I agree with MMD,--less is more. Just because Porsche has it on the option list doesn't mean it can be the right combination for any car. How about yellow brakes? Ever considered the PCCBs? That would change your 'order' considerably, since you appear to be basing your interior on what your brake calipers look like.

    (P.S. The PCCBs do improve handling, as well).

    Thanks Porsche-Jeck....you're very kind. I like the photo very much. Now it makes me feel even more impatient!

    Yes, I am counting each and every day wondering how I am still surviving!

    Re: Instrument dials in guards red option

    Why does the Porsche optioned red gauge faces come with near invisible red gauge needles and invisible redline marking ? At the least , change the needles to white to match the numerials. Would look better and be safer .


    Re: Instrument dials in guards red option

    The red dials look great, but reading the red needles over the red face will be difficult. I wouldn't do it. Unless you never actually read the dials and drive by ear!

    Re: Instrument dials in guards red option

    I love seeing the different personal preferences expressed by the craetive use of the options list. I think you should spec your car based on what appeals to you, no one elese matters. This pre-occupation with resale values is quite tiring, after all if finances were the only criterion, then it would be a wise decision not to buy a PCAR anyway!
    I applaud individuality! After all don't you think we have enough silver, grey, black variants?

    Re: Instrument dials in guards red option

    nice....

    Re: Instrument dials in guards red option

    They used to say that (because of the myriad of options) you never would see the same (optioned) car in 45 days. I don't know about that,--I see a lot of silver.
