Thoughts on colour coded wheel centres?

best left in the 90's with wet look hair gel....


I know its a distinct/traditional Porsche look, but I'm not convinced it lends itself to the 996


For my money I'd keep it uniform "factory" silver, maybe a darker contrasted centre... an alternative might be the darker, more chrome "AMG silver"......

I’d be a big fan of gold. Saw these on eBay and it’s just the way I’m going to go with my own

Still not sure to do with these wheels.

Yeah. Picked them up needing a refurb but they sit perfectly on the car with no spacers. Don't really want to spend much cash on them so just thinking DIY refurb.

Annual rad clean out. Just goes to show how good the mesh and shroud drain holes have worked.

Looks like a good result. The mesh really has done its job. Encouraging as I’ve just added mesh grills too.

That’s what you want to see. Thumb

My new one has the black Zunsport grills fitted. You can’t really see them which is a plus, but I’m hoping they’ve done a similar job to yours. I’ll be having a bumper off inspection in due course.

That's using all year round as well so when the leaves are on the ground.

I drilled some holes at the back lower section of the shrouds to help wash out the water and dirt when you power wash in there which seems to help as well.
