One minor issue, from opening and closing the bonnet/boot, the screen wash pipe snapped in half... kindly replaced the whole pipe whilst i waited.

Deposit placed on 992, not sure yet if to collect in the spring or wait for mine to hit 3yrs and collect 1st Sept? I'm thinking 1st Sept, as my 991.2 probably won't incur any servicing costs in the next 9 months. Probably a set of rear boots the only thing.

I'm going for the same spec as my current Carrera (with the same toys...) but instead of Blue, going for:
    GT Silver
    Will wait to see what other alloys they release before lock-down
    Black leather with contrast yellow stitching
    Yellow seatbelts
    Sports chrono stopwatch in yellow
    Thinking wood trim at present from the positive reports
    Wish you could order the brake callipers in yellow, as have no interest in Carbon

Must admit, from having the 911, honestly can't think of what you could change to for all round practicality, performance, desirability and value for money as a family daily-runner with 4 seats (granted rear are for the kids, but absolutely perfect for age 3 to 11).

There are a few near-cars, but they are either not a patch on design quality or on depreciation or running costs and reliability.

Shame you can’t drive one with the PCCB, there would be no way you would want “normal” brakes, ever again! ps isn’t Racomg yellow available Grin

Ha! Suppose so, but the brakes are seriously good as they are. Have done such a range of driving and brake performance has always been excellent and have great trust in them.

I don't think you can order them painted, would be an aftermarket paint job.
