997 parts supply - recommendations please


New member

I have a 997 GT3 and looking for the following from those that have used.

Wheel bolts - Titanium or just refresh with newer OEM ones
OEM alcantara gear knob - Porsche or a specialist company? I have carbon one I want to change

GT3 Centre caps in silver - lots on eBay but worried about fakes - who is a trusted seller?

Red touch up paint - called the OPC and they don't have any.

Harness or roll bar - any recommendations for a rear bar?

Parts: Design911 online, or phone your local Porsche Centre and speak to parts. There are other parts suppliers but they are my two go-to's.

Centre caps: most on ebay are probably fake but will work just fine. They start fine but fade a bit. OPC or Design911 for real ones.

Gearknob you might want to look at ebay, Teile.com in addition to the above. Plenty of decent trimmers if needed to.

Paint: Chipex do a reasonable kit for guards red.

The Tequipment/Porsche half cage should be available from the OPC if you wanted?
Thanks Yellow.

Haven't been in a Porsche for some time and D911 didn't have the best rep 8-10 years ago. Thats good to know. :thumbs:
Ive found Design911 to be absolutely spot on tbh. Though for OEM parts the dealer has been cheaper than everywhere else.
Yep, D911 are fine for anything that will have decent volume of parts and shipping is quite quick. I still think they are more expensive than OPC for most Porsche bits, but sometimes I like the convenience of being able to shop online.

Deroure / Bell&Coville are good too if you are looking for another source to get Porsche bits at often better than OPC prices, but it can take a little time / need to phone them up.
