    Congrats Alex, you didn't order the Sport Chrono. It seems strange for a PDK car, what is your rationale?

    We really wanted to go simple ( we tried ), and finally ended up getting the electric roof which some how I regret that choice, will see when weather opens up a bit (very soon actually Smiley).

    Other than that, our 991 was ordered pretty simple. TWO MAIN OPTIONS (as always) wheels and sport exhaust, those are always options we go for. Electic steering wheel, PDK, sport steering wheel, and that's it !!!Smiley....Sport chrono was a choice....but decided it was more than we wanted !!

    We also thought getting just the basic 19" wheels !! But thank god we didnt !!!The painted rims makes the car look PHENOMENAL !!!!!Smiley

    Alex, what Option are the  wheels in that colour Smiley I couldn't find something matching on the configurator.

    Hi reginos, the wheels are equipped with the option Painted in platinum (silk matt), its code 446). It also comes the coloured Porsche crest !! GREAT LOOKING !!!!! SmileySmileySmiley

    Anyway, now the crucial Sport button is standard on the 991, unlike the 997.2 that was part of the SC package.

    SC would have added the Clock (dubious taste), Launch Control (gimmick, I used it only once!) the Sport Plus "motorsport gearshift" in Auto mode (too radical for the road) and the Dynamic Engine Mounts (good to have but not something you can do without).

    Exactly !!Smiley

    We had the sport chrono plus in other 997's and was used in some occassions and nothing more, its way too radical !! But I love it !!!SmileySmiley

    Yes! Because that's the option. They come finished in matt grey. I was quite surprised when getting off the plastic from the rims, thought it iswas going to be jut dark silver, but the matt finish definately gives the rims a much sporty look !!! i cant be happier !!!

    BTW I just camed from the dealer to get some little present they had prepared ( a special edition 917 lemans watch, only 917 made, ours is 502) !!!kiss What an amazing piece !!! ..... i went to the dealer to check the first 991 cabriolet in Madrid !! They received today and got the call !!! Did some pics !!! Its one of the most beautiful sportscars out there right now.....The top is just retro style, its even better looking with the top up than down !!! Reminds me a lot of a speedster !!!! Its going to sell like pancakes in summer !!!! Took the 991, the excitement I have is growing more and more everytime I get it. The sound is intoxicating, but till breakin in the engine !!! Only 90kms has now in total Smiley The sound when downshifting with the paddles makes a popcorn sound from the exhaust, that you will never get bored !!! The paddle shifts are great !!! The coasting mode is AWESOME !!!! 8.0L/100KMS fuel consumption M!!! Of course going like a granny !!!Smiley

    Need to upload some pics of the 991 cabriolet, it looks sensational, just another 10/10 excercise for the design department !!!!

    Re: Finally our 991 arrived to the dealer !!!! Pics !!!

    Great car, I especially like the painted rims in matte grey. I guess you know my appreciation for dark colors on the 991.

    By the way, where are those videos you mentioned? indecision


    Re: Finally our 991 arrived to the dealer !!!! Pics !!!

    Congrats Alex !   Your 991 is a real beauty?    Are you able to post any videos of your sport exhaust in action ?  Would love to hear the sports exhaust on the 3.4 !   

    Thanks and enjoy your baby in good health !

    Re: Finally our 991 arrived to the dealer !!!! Pics !!!

    Hey

     

    Has any one seen a white car with platinum silk gloss wheels? i have to lock my order in September and thinking of getting those wheels instead of the carrera classic wheels 

     

    Any thoughts?

     


    Re: Finally our 991 arrived to the dealer !!!! Pics !!!

    congrats Alex.

    I thnk we have all experienced similar excitement when getting a new car! 

    the tinted wheels look amazing with black exterior.

     

    and I totally agree with you re the PSE!  much much louder than the 997 PSE.

    I was blown away when I first test drove a 991 with PSE.  absolutely must have option!!

    Yes, I saw one at the dealer a few weeks ago. Looked pretty good if you ask me.
    Will post the pictures tonight, but don't expect too much of it, since the pictures were taken with pretty bad lighting.

    I assumed that with "silk" options for the wheels you meant the dark grey option?
    Here you go, sorry for the bad quality of the image, hope it helps you though!

    Anyone with those dull dark boring wheels want to trade for my bright glossy shiny ones?

    (Damn,  I wish I knew about them before I got my car)


    Re: Finally our 991 arrived to the dealer !!!! Pics !!!

    Thanks a lot for taking the pics

    They look very good . still got till the end of the month to decide!


    Re: Finally our 991 arrived to the dealer !!!! Pics !!!

    Do they look a bit dull in the pics?

     

    Are they shiny in the flesh when you see them ?


    Re: Finally our 991 arrived to the dealer !!!! Pics !!!

    Hi og, you're welcome mate!

    They are a bit of satin-shiny; not really reflective, but definately not entirely matte either.

    If it were my choice, i'd go for eiter these wheels, or black wheels. Both look better than silver wheels on a white car.

    Cheers Joost.

    Thanks

    I am not changing my mind about the car colour.. its white.

    I am still thinking about ordering the classic wheels with the coloured porsche crest 

     

    What do you think suits white better .. carrera classic wheels or platinum satin ?

    Thanks
