My friend steering wheel just came in for his 2RS Took about 14 months
My 2RS didn’t have the CF one either. It’s just not on paying money like this and having to weight 14 months for what you paid for.

My wheels also came in a colour I didn’t order (I ordered 2RS white gold) and they came in platinum.
Sounds like you need to get hold of the DP and Arm Bar him or Choke Him Out, that should fix it biggrin
The maybe we will all get our CF Steering Wheels

I wanted Weiss gold painted Mg wheels too, but was told that colour option wasn’t available so chose silver instead. Looks fantastic, and I’m actually glad now that Weiss gold wasn’t available....

I thought long and hard on all wheel colour choices on my RS's Mag rims..I liked all of them for different reasons although i discounted the Aurum against the yellow calipers..In the end i just went with the standard Platinum wheels which i'm happy with based on some pics i've seen.
On another note all three RSs at my OPC are Black WP with Plat rims including mine..Who saw that coming..?...not me..!

Thank you

Going for mods before I even get to see her in the flesh.

I am leaning towards refinishing the wheels to satin black with a Grey Black or polished pinstripe

Your car looks so amazing I wouldn’t change the wheels. I think the combo is so special and goes well with the PTS. MHO and my own taste of course. It is just gorgeous this colour you chose!

Hi
So are the CF steering wheels not coming through on the WP cars then? thought it was stock on WP cars. They came through on the 2RS in the end. Its not a full wheel, its a CF cover that fits on top. On the sound of the the new cars, with Ex off it is not as loud as say the off on a 991-R. But with Sports Ex on the new Gen 3 engine cars are as the same DB reading as Ex On settings in the 991-R at 4k Rpm. The R is as loud as a 991RS. So not concerned about the sound any more.

Agree APPOLO , sound not the big issue as track limits and it is the induction noise up to 9k that you hear in car ...

As the old vacumn exhaust valves have been replaced by new electronic exhaust valves on the GPF RS i expect the transition between on/off will be less pronounced . Or is it more complicated than that..?
JCR have assured me they intend to develop a new Titanium exhaust for the GPF RS..Akrapovic on the other hand have said that they do not intend developing an exhaust for the GPF RS due to the very low numbers of cars and short life cycle.

They are not coming through and will be supplied later, just like the 2RS. I asked for a delivery date and they couldn’t give me one.

Based on the new Gen 3 car I measured yesterday with the Exhaust on Open mode at 4k Rpm, it had the same DB reading as what my 991-R had in same mode, which was the same as the 991.1RS. Any Louder and it would struggle to make the DB limit on some tracks. Whist in Exhaust closed mode it was 3 Db lower than when the 991R was in the same mode. Last years Gen 2RS has a bit less sound proofing on the inside than the 991.1, this new car has the same. This new Gen 3 engine car feels and sounds a lot different in the way in which it Revs. Look forward to see some on track days.

I wonder if a new or modified PF cartridge would be simpler, quite a serious looking piece of kit after the PFs ??

It certainly looks heavy vs a little titanium.
