You and me both. I've got all those bar the illuminated door sills... and I didnt go for LED lights, but I do have Burmester (got in on my current C4s as well) and ahem ... Front axle lift.

Apparently mine entered the body shop today! Cool[/quote]

It was very easy to get carried away wasn't it! Great spec!
And believe me you will love the car, its genuinely the best I've ever owned and driven!

I've had mine for about 3.5 weeks now and am smiling from ear to ear.

I'm extremely happy with my spec, I haven't missed anything I feel was essential (remember I capped my budget at £105k).

It's incredibly fast and is glued to the road. In Sport mode it sounds terrific. Dropping off the accelerator makes the exhaust burble and gurgle that just makes you chuckle.

I'm very happy that I chose the options that I did. Leather interior (removing all Alcantara) might be controversial but I am very pleased. The Sport Tex seats are very comfortable and the interior is lovely. My Wife is taking a little time getting used to know brushed aluminium though.

The little Dial on the steering wheel is taking some getting used to. I keep looking down at the centre console to engage Sport mode!






Very pleased with Gtechnic, very pleased with my OPC Silverstone Service, just very pleased! Well apart from CarPlay which I find weak Floor

Mine left Emden for Sheerness yesterday... only one car transporter was on that route yesterday and it has now docked. Getting excited!

PS - Enjoyed seeing your car Jenz... The Sportex does work really well especially with the other interior options you chose.

Lovely looking car congrats! I use OPC Silverstone too and think they're great....especially as I have there 991.2 GTS demo for a day in a week or so.

Can I ask did you get the Gtechnic applied before you picked the car up ? Have a Boxster on order for the wife which I want to get done which we'll be picking up from Silverstone.

You mean this one? Quite surprised but I like the colour (Green Yellow I think) but I dont think I could live with bucket seats on a daily driver.

We should have a Silverstone OPC owners meetup at Super Sausage at Potterspury one morning! Thumb

Yup that one! Color is also also known as "Gelbgrun"....I am quite tempted though trying not to be....

Can I just ask again about the Gtech ? Did you get the car treated at the OPC ? Sorry!

Tomorrow is collection day for me! thumbsup

Not going down the OPC GTech route. Have a local guy I trust who looks after my cars and does Liquid Elements ceramic coating so its either that or perhaps PPF. Just had a quote from a place in Milton Earnest for that and a basic PPF is about the same as ceramic coating. Dont know

PS - Ceramic coating is looking the favorite.

Is that the downside of living to close to the OPC? I am 80 miles from Silverstone so once mine arrived I will struggle to pop in, however I would be climbing the walls watching the second/minutes slowly tick away until; pickup...... Very Happy
