Thanks fellas, the Amberghini (love that) was gorgeous and sounded amazing, can't compete in the sound department.

Just read my thread from the start, well my updates and many of the comments, was good to read, I forgot so many of the things I did. Haha

Kudos to you! Thumb

Still hoping to one day see this in the metal...

Out of curiosity, could you put a ballpark figure on the total cost?

I have never been brave enough to add up the receipts, I started calling them out to my lady recently and she was adding them up but she said I was calling out too many too fast. Haha

Because of the way I did it, it would be more expensive than someone who just wanted to make it 'look' like a GT2RS. In other words you could do it for less to get the look but I wanted it to be as exact as possible.

Probably between £40-50k

I clicked on the last page of this thread and immediately thought, wow that looks good but, them wheels would look better in Weiss gold Grin only to scroll down and see that you're thinking the same.

Personally I'd do the same with the front vinyl plate as chris Harris has done too. Thumb

Loved the thread and videos issy and the car looks pure porn worship

Even better with gold wheels Cool

Aren't those 2 different sets of wheels in different shades of gold? with the bottom being Weiss.

Definitely agree with going with the Weiss looks great IMO with the black , not sure what the gold is in the top pic with Mr Harris , looks a bit too bright?

You'll have Apollokr1ed of this parish regretting his decision to go with the titanium Very Happy

Agreed the gold against a black 911 looks amazing!

Funnily enough I’ve been talking to Chris @ exel about getting mine done and he suggested aurum gold (satin), which is apparently the gold on the gt3rs or possibly an exclusive manufactur colour? .. i think that may be one of the shades in the piccys from isysman

I think the top picture were the OEM wheels, as that one was taken when he picked up the car. I recall reading on Twitter that he has since put some aftermarket magnesium wheels on it which I think are the ones shown in the bottom. Either way the gold wheels look good...

Bottom pic look like BBS E88's or similar Thumb
