How about under seat storage and seat back rest storage?

My final couple of choices I fancy are the illuminated door sills and illuminated Porsche logo on open doors. Anyone have these and got views on having them?
Being curious why have you gone with the GTS Exterior Package in Satin?
I like the idea as a contrast and had it on another car. Happy to take feedback if this is potentially going to look odd!
This might help;

Mine has the downlighters with the Porsche logo and like them. Even the wife likes them - and she's not a fan of chintz

I nearly went for illuminated sills which I have on my other cars, but felt that having both downlighter and illuminated sills together was a bit much

Enjoy finalising :-)

"Exciting times" eh?

FWIW, I went for the "S", and am very well pleased with it.
The 2022 S has the same power as the previous GTS and works great for me:-)

Your GTS spec looks great!

I like the seats stitching pattern (and specced the 18 ways on my car just to get it!). The standard pattern looks to me like a fat person's underpants - and once you've seen it you can't unsee it! :D

As others have said, the aluminium petrol cap is pretty poor really. I was expecting something substantial that would remind me of classic cars? In reality it's really just plastic - or plasticky. The salesman tried to dissuade me but I wouldn't listen :D No harm in having it though ...

Have you considered the "acoustically insulated laminated glass"?
It actually has a slightly tinted effect - and keeps road noise and sunglare down.
I'm glad I have it :-)

I also went for sideblades painted in the body colour, but TBH on your spec I think the contrast looks great!

Enjoy! :D

It’s on a Python green one around the corner from me and looks superb in the flesh. It also gives a pretty unique and imo nicer looking front end without the “guppy lips” of the painted version.

Thanks everyone. I have a few months to finalise the spec. The 18 way seats sounds like they impact boot space when down and one very important job the car needs to do is transport bicycles 😂

Get into a showroom and have a play.

I am a bit precious about them as not overly cheap to be outside the car.
