Nothing wrong with Grey when you have a tasty set of rims like that, they look the mutts!

None taken Very Happy I am contemplating getting the petals on the wheels done silver think it would stand out with the grey. I do also agree about the dull colours seemed to be a period when grey black and silver was all you could get have you tried getting a Merc in any other colour Surprised Bmw have a cracking range of colours at the moment like both the Bronze and greeny Blue you get would be nice to get a Turbo in something like that also love Mexico blue from Porsche.

Nah leave them as they are they look really good with the silver rim.

I'm a fan of the Cobalt Blue but every time I went after one they were sold immediately.

There was a 991 Turbo S went through the auctions last month in GT Silver, it was a really clean car apparently with 25k miles and sold for £75 k, bargain!

I`m going to wait and see how it is with the aerokit fitted and lowered before I make a decision on the wheels.

It seems the 991 turbo s market is better value in general compared to the 997.2 can't really see why?

Not many of the bright (not black/white/grey/silver) colours come up. Pre 2016 there were mostly middle Single digit cars advertised at any time across all colours. 15 on autotrader now but that is unusually high.

The 997.2 was post the 2008/9 crash but still during the depressed market for new cars so less sold. Thus less in colours than the 997.1

991 turbo S was available across all model years rather than being a run out special as it was on the 997, 996 and 993 before, so more sold and more supply. There are 84 991 Turbo S on auto trader today (10 blue and 5 red 0 yellow) hence the 991 dropping below 997 costs.

I don’t watch the market in detail, but owning one means you look in from time to time and this thread made me look in a bit more detail.

They are not uber rare but you have to be lucky with timing to find one for sale in the unusual colours. As an example I bought one of the two available in yellow in the past 5 years (that I know of). There were probably more bright colours sold and I don’t watch the market much despite this long post.

Buy a non coloured one and get it wrapped maybe? The turbo s is a low profile monster in any of the other shades and I get why there are lots specced that way.

Not sure about your buying criteria but the colour does not matter when you are inside one. Fantastic cars. Good luck with the search Thumb
