Sounds like you've had a bit of a result there. Content yourself that the repaint pleases you and pocket the the extra PX money.

Enjoy your new car, another advantage of the Carrara White is that it doesn’t show the muck, mine has a ceramic coating on it, and most of the road crap just washes off with the rain, or a quick blast with a pressure washer.
I have Glacier white pearlescent on my F-Type and agree it's the easiest colour I have ever had to maintain, hope the Carrara white is the same. One reason I couldn't have gone black even if it looks superb on a GTS, was how difficult a colour it is to maintain and avoid swirls.

Do forum members think that supply of 2017/18 cars may improve in the Spring and prices come down a little?
If there are no/few deliveries between late December and April as suggested elsewhere on the forum, newly new cars will increase in value. That happened between when I first started to look for a Macan having missed the Gen1 last order date around May /June 2018 and Gen2 first deliveries of early 2019. In practice, I think if a had bought a 2016 /7 Macan in Late 2018 it would have now suffered the same depreciation as my bought new 2019 Macan S.
Over the last two week, I have noticed an increase in the no of forum members and others selling cars because there are using a vehicle less or in a different manner since the pandemic. This must have an effect on prices suppressing them in the short term and medium to long term unless they return to the pre-pandemic use of cars

I sold mine this week because I had simply stopped using it. Being retired, for me the pandemic has stopped all the holiday/fun trips for which I had planned to use the car. In the last year I had done 2400 miles, most of which was a trip to Bavaria last October. The final decider was that used prices are so strong at the moment; even the quotes from WBAC have gone up over the past couple of months (not that I used them).

Carrara white looks stunning on my Boxster T as it contrasts nicely with the grey or black exterior elements.
