I guess they are easily resprayed if the OP doesn't like them when it turns up or could easily be done before resale to maximise potential buyers.
No longer part of the Porsche Family. Now enjoying a Giulia Quadrifoglio.

White wheels - Great in California with its sunny dry climate; not so good in Cambridgeshire!

On keyless.

We had a BMW three series loaner recently with keyless. For me a PITA as I shall now explain.

Grab keys from the hall table, leave the house press, the fob button to unlock the car, get it. Nowhere to put the keys. Put them on the centre console. Press the start button and drive off. First roundabout, keys slide off the console and get lodged somewhere inaccessible. Gimme a key slot any time.

Just keep the key in your pocket. Simples!

If only it was that easy. 40 years of driving mean habits are hard to break.

Tell me about it. I had keyless in a merc. Changed to BMW and nearly dislocated my fingers getting in as I kept forgetting to unlock.

Need keyless entry and start. Then all you do is stick the key in your pocket, pull the door handle, get in and start the car. No rattling keys hanging out of a slot in the dash.
