Are Porsche doing your ppf? Do you mind me asking the cost? A few places recommended near me (Lincolnshire) but not sure if it's worth factory or Topaz doing it. Cost dependent.
Topaz is PPF’ing mine and pulling my pants down in the process!!

If you come north to Beverley, ATD did mine with Xpel! They're a great outfit.

hey, i bring articles, news, cars for sale, and topical thread starters to the party....I don't see you doing any of that. Don't be so rude and get some manners.
You’re right. I don’t tend to spam the forums.

You’re also unaware of that clowns car ‘history’.

The OPC is organising but have subbed out to a company based near Guildford. I think around £2.5k.

Maybe a bit too far for me, considering the local firms. My car is coming from south of here so Topaz could be an idea.

Do many go with no front plate? I'm thinking none, but a sticker just in case.

I might be laughed out of this forum for this but do you think the chances of getting a new order in and actually getting a car or do you think it’s game over now?

I’m late to the game with GT4 (having only just got a 981 GT4 for the first time this year) but it way more my type of car than a 911 ever was.

I did for a bit but couldn’t be doing with the constant stress of being pulled.

Just make sure you tell your dealer not to mount the front plate otherwise you’ll end up with self tapping screws in your bumper when they fit the plinth.

Got you. Cheers.
I did discuss this and I'll mention it again, to make sure there aren't any!

I ordered satin black alloys on shark blue / PCCBs, but I'm quite liking silver. Did a little compare using the pics from this thread:

Can’t hurt to ask, but I suspect you will struggle based on the number of people who want one and will no doubt have their names down at dealerships

Allegedly the last production run has been done, but who knows

Looks better with silver IMO, although I've been ordering my P cars with gold wheels for some time now.

Be careful of running with no front plate . The law changed last year and you can get £100 fine and 3 points for not displaying a plate .

Honestly think you will struggle to be honest. Saying that it would still Be Worth setting aside a couple of hours and calling a number of dealers. Don’t ask you certainly won’t get!

Very nice.

I really like Porsche’s Satin Neodyme which is a darker, copper like gold.
