Folks,

Gen 3 GTS!!!!!

This morning I found a Gentian Blue GTS parked up near Reading!!!! Apparently there was a Papaya one there earlier but I missed it.

The car looks awesome in the flesh and much better than the pictures I've seen. Not my choice of either but the wheels go well with the blue.

Interior looks great, less busy that previous which may not be to everyone's taste but I liked it. The new steering wheel is a massive improvement, seems thicker and much more substantial. this car had the painted air vents which looked good but don't think they are value for money! It also had the Burmeister system. I'm sure it sounds better but the 'Bose' logo definitely looks better!!!

I still cannot work out why the GTS has a totally black grill. I'm sure the S and even the basic painted grill will look better. As you can see from the pictures this one is matt black, not painted at all.

I've shown a side on of the rear as the lip in the middle of the rear bumper does stick out and I'm not keen on its profile.

:D

I think the tail lights are the standard ones for the GTS, they look ident to ones on Gen 2 models with 'tinted' tail lights.

Great catch.

Bit of a surprise though given there are so many posts on this form about the GTS not being made for the next couple of milenia 😊

Joking aside, I wonder if its a press car.

Yes, it and the Papaya one are press cars. There is also the German plated red one but that hasn't been seen there this week.

Good spot! Iove the colour, but I don't like the Neodyme wheels, they look more gold on the configurator, i think they clash horribly with yellow calipers

I love the blue, but would put silver wheels with it instead. As said above, those wheels don’t go well with the yellow callipers.

The sensors on the front look completely different from what's on my Gen 2 S, curious!
