Hi,
I need to retrim a console delete frame that I've bought in graphite grey carpet to match my interior.
Anyone know where I can buy the carpet from please? I only need half a metre.
Thanks.
 
I imagine finding the exact match carpet for a colour other than black may be an issue here in the UK, I'd try calling whoever you have local who specialises in classic car upholstery or restoration. Not sure how cheap you got the delete but I purchased one for my Boxster a few years back from my Porsche Centre and if I remember correctly cost me £140 which may be the more cost effective option than sourcing a carpet match then the time taken to redo the carpet. Especially if you can sell on and recoup what you bought the old one for.

I think getting hold of this colour is particularly difficult now (Graphite Grey) - I would be very surprised if someone didn't pay you the RRP for this so you could source a new one from your local OPC in the correct colour.

Unfortunately it's no longer possible to buy the delete new from Porsche in graphite grey as they have discontinued it. If this wasn't the case I would have sold the one I bought (for £15!) in black and then used the proceeds to buy one in grey.
