That's a nice build you have there. You asked so just a couple of comments:
I'm not sure how much the painted air intakes add to the look on a black car?
I have the GT Steering wheel and love it. Maybe you have a chance checking it out at the dealer.
The sport exhaust system is nice but I understand that your build is already getting pricey for the base model.
Personally I would skip sport chrono (especially with the manual) and PTV in favor of the sport exhaust system.

It's going to be a great car either way, welcome to the forum!

I have a manual transmission 718 Boxster S with SC, PASM, PSE, PTV. I would also suggest skipping the PTV and getting the PSE instead. You will use the sport exhaust every day, the torque vectoring only if you are really flogging the car. I like having the sport chrono because it gives you some individuality in the suspension and throttle settings (and provides the dynamic engine mounts), all which contribute to the overall ride quality, handling and performance equation. Also, with SC, you can select the sport plus setting and get the deeper PSE exhaust sound without the backfires, if you so choose. On a manual trans. car, sport chrono does not have the center button on the steering wheel mounted selector, which on a PDK equipped car, gives the car 20 secs of fully optimized performance. SC on a PDK is a "must"; less so on a MT car.

In any case, it's a heck of a great build!

One more thing: The smoker package is free and adds a 12V outlet to the middle console. If you have use for that. It's where I plug in my radar detector for example.

Just wanted to mention that there is a 12V outlet down low on the passenger's side footwell and I use this for my V1. That way the power cord does not stretch across the console (i.e., if you use the smoker package 12V outlet).

But yes, the smoking package is free and so is the passenger side cargo net

Thanks - helpful comments from all of you. The painted black side intakes are probably a bit too much - we just looked at my black 981 and the "standard" scoops look just fine so that money will go elsewhere.
