Congratulations on a fine looking example of a Turbo PP. I like the colour far more than I would have expected (generally not a big fan of green cars but this one looks great).
+1. My thoughts entirely.

So the red piping can be opted out of.

Have seen pics of a couple of Oak Green 991.2s that look pretty awesome. 😎

Good to see another unusual colour. Not seen that before on any model. Enjoy

Are you going to replace the orange indicators for clear Euro spec?
That would be illegal in USA!
Well, they won't be able to catch up to him in a Turbo PP so he'll be fine.

Can I ask how long it took to get PTS? I am always amazed at how much easier it appears to be for US customers and it can't all be down to LHD.

Thank you! Correct order was placed Feb 28 and car was built May 29, arriving at dealer June 26. How long does it take in UK?

There are no clear side markers for sale yet, but there is a company (bumper plugs.com) that has a special paint process and can paint them so they appear body color but still function. They can do this in malachite green for me but I’m not yet sure it bothers me enough to justify $200!

On my GT4, PTS added 9 months to the order. 991.2 GT3, we weren't even given the option of PTS although I know of one UK car in Gulf Orange but having chatted to the owner, he maintains he was just lucky. I think the cost level of his CXX personalisation probably had a lot to do with it.

Would have thought a European part supplier would be able to provide the clear indicator housing, it's a standard part. Not sure I like the idea of body colour indicators.

I must agree that the vehicle looks superb in that colour which, as you say, is very subtle and classy. Congratulations.

Thank you much and to others for the compliments. It’s a head-turner for a lot of people, which is kinda fun for a 4 year old body style. Not like the sapphire blue one in early 2015 when there were NONE on the roads (that was a bit much).

Recent hotel asked me to park it in the front circle...never a bad sign!
