Do you mind if I ask about the mechanics of this. Do OPC give you a premium for the car or do you give it back to them at what you paid for it, to get into the RS?
Edit- the RS looks amazing, will be interested to hear your thoughts on the difference between the 2.

I'll be changing the car for a Weissach Pack Lizard green GT3RS in circa January.

Still enjoying the GT3 though which is really all you need

Just order lots of cars with the same dealer over a short/ish timeframe, the RS will be my 11th car

I think the GT3 will be the best all round car and usable daily for some, (I couldn't) but the RS with the Weissach pack is something else with a stiffer ride.

Thanks for the comments so far Smile

My GT3 finally arrived at the OPC yesterday....long old wait but very excited. Off to have a look this afternoon but won't get the keys properly for another week or so as it's going off to have front end PPF as I intend to do two or three track days a year.

I'm reasonably excited thumbsup

Congrats, the only thing you'll need to do is press the PDK Sport button then the LOUD transmission whine sounds fantastic in the cabin at low speeds Drive

It’s almost like they forgot to install it on the manual cars for some reason.
