So, my new (to me) green GT3 is being prepped / detailed at Porsche ready for me to collect next week and their detailer also does their decals so I'm wondering about having the "GT3" script on the sides. It does look verrrrry Green and I thought the decals would break it up a bit.

(Photoshop is clearly not my forte, but you get the general idea)

Thoughts....?

Are you keeping the wheels the same colour? Nothing wrong with them but if you are I (personally) would change one thing at a time and see how you feel about it.

Looks good with the decals Smile

I don't mind the wheels to be honest - wasn't sure to start with but they look good in the flesh.

Another vote for the decals from me.

Can't you also get a quote from a local sign specialist?

Definitely needs the decals ...green and Black is the right combo and the decals would link the black wheels nicely ...

Don’t think twice , do it while it’s with your retailer ....makes sense ....

Agree

It looks far more complete with the decals and far too bare without.

How About a Porsche script up the side?

Yes, I’ve been looking at a few- still undecided?!? Think the Porsche script looks a bit more modern perhaps....
