Are your wheels the standard colour? I'm looking to change mine but unsure of what to go with - Anthracite/Grey or a bit of bling Weiss Gold. Looking for examples....

ahh, 113k miles..

With a warranty engine replacement at about 30k miles in 2007, hence large IMS type. Funny one liner on the OPC works invoice, 'engine recovered to OPC under warranty, noisy tappet sound, engine rebuild and replaced'

Genuinely look to have been refurbed, but I would say it's 'bog standard anthracite'...

Ha I 100% planned to get them refurbed in gold.. But these are in good nick so will give it a while, is that the name of the colour of the factory race team type BBS gold??

Beers!

They look refurbished to me as they come in GT Silver with a polished lip.

They'd looik good in Weiss Gold I reckon!

I'm currently talking to Chris @ Exel wheels and he is going to try and dig out some examples of his work with these wheels - I'll post them up.

We had a long conversation about it the other day, if you've not read about it or know - the polished lip is diamond cut & lacquered every time you change it you're taking a 'life' out of the wheel (cutting the alloy down a layer) so when it comes to putting the paint on the rest of the wheel the edge starts to bleed/merge onto the diamond cut lip. I’ve ‘had’ a perfect set of wheels until last week…. the garage managed to blister the lacquer so I have to get them refurbed, decided mine is going to be a keeper so I’m not fussed about keeping the polished lip and get the whole wheel painted. The other bit I got from the conversation is that some wheels really suit certain colours and in his opinion weiss gold on these is not the best - but each to their own!

I had them on my 996. IMO it needed them to fit my theme of updating the car.

Ironically, I quite like the fact that the 997.1 is the last of the analogue cars before DRL’s & LED lamps. But I must admit, on your car they look pretty amazing. Can we have more photos of your car please?

For comparison, my new car before I de-GT3 badge it.



Hey Bud,
I think I agree re the non led lights, I most likely will re fit the OEM's however I wouldn't mind if an all red set turned up.

My car has been modified to my vision of an OEM+ with emphasis on handling, feel and driveability.




Have you decided to de badge it then? I saw your thread. Love the Grey colour it looks lovely.


Thanks.

It won’t have a GT3 badge on it by the weekend. Not fully decided what it will have though.
