Great car- very jealous you've got yours! The white actually looks great- is that the non metallic white? I also love the standard wheels!

Would you mind sending some more pictures of the standard seats? How do they feel?

If you've tested the 14/18 way seats, do you have any comments on how they compare?

The Black and white works well, especially with the new S front. Those pics have swung me away from red or silver. Like 👍

Non-metallic white. Saw both whites in the showroom at one point and honestly couldn't see enough difference.

I've not tested the 14 or 18 way seats.

I'll get some more pics of the standard seats, for me they are comfy and I prefer the partial leather. Centres are a rough sort of texture compared to the alcantara of my old S.

That's a very similar spec to my current SD & near what I would order again.
I'm borrowing one for 3 days while mine is serviced shortly.
Out of interest, how easy would it be to kerb those rims.
On my SD the rims are recessed & after 6 years I've not damaged them at all 👍

The non metallic white looks very good in your pics and the standard S wheels look excellent. From what I can see in one of your pics the seat centre fabric looks nice and similar to the Sportstex material that my Boxster T seat centres were made of.

Martin congratulations, very nice looking S!

Can I ask as your one of the first owners that has the non leather seats with the drivers memory package that I have come across; does your passenger side mirror “dip” when you put the car in reverse?

Great- thank you. My current car has partial leather with alcantara too and I love it (prefer it to the full leather seats i've had previously) but its hard to tell what the new standard seats will be like so any photos/insight is so helpful- I can't imagine there'll be many if any demos with them either.

I prefer the partial leather seats over full leather,but like you say I’ve not sat in the standard 8 ways so don’t know if they are comfortable enough and non of the demos etc have standard seats! Also if you spec the leather interior which I think the car needs,it changes the seats to full leather.

Can confirm it does "dip" but not a massive amount. Can be turned on/off in the settings screen next to rev counter.
