I’d definitely get the rear apron section painted,makes a big difference in appearance.
I’d agree with this if going for a light colour. If not on my volcano grey you can hardly tell where the paint ends so wouldn’t be worth paying for.

Went for the full package , thought it looked good in Crayon but very personal decision.

Your car looks great!

There is no right or wrong.

We are all different, thank goodness, and have differing tastes.

Luckily Porsche allow us the flexibility to create a car tailored to our own individual preferences! :)

Cheers,

Looks great! I was thinking of only optioning the painted front and rear aprons and leaving the side skirts as standard, but this has changed my mind. I've now switched to the full painted exterior package!

I’d paint them

I regret not having them on ours - like the side Blades they are horrible plastic which is less easy to clean

To paint or not to paint, that is the question?

Totally depends upon colour and variant.

Must admit, painted blades are vastly easier to clean than the stock dirt magnets.

Side blades. Depends on whether you want the 'estate car' look or the 'SUV' look.

The dimpled ones were a pain to clean thoroughly on my SD. The smooth matt black ones on my Gen2 GTS look good and are as easy to clean as the paintwork.

I say definitely, I ordered them and front and back too in color. I think it completes the car, especially on the lighter colors, makes the car look bigger and more upmarket to me.
