With apologies, I'm racing to meet a 12/5 deadline I only learned of yesterday. Here is my build:

http://www.porsche-code.com/PJ7N6QR2

First questions regard LCA.

1) Please confirm that this is only visual; no auditory signals
2) Please confirm that it can be turned off
3) Does LCA ever prevent a car from participation in a track event?

Many thanks,

Joe

Awesome; thank you both.

Anybody have Chalk/Black Leather interior? See my other thread. Thanks!!

I have the Chalk/Black Leather interior and I am very happy; goes real well with the Miami Blue. I was originally going with the Sport-Tex interior but changed it while in the V210 status and glad I did. I have seen Porsches with the MB exterior and Sport-Tex interior and it does not go well at all.

Why don’t you get the GTS? You would save money and get what you want.
By the time I build a GTS and make it the way I want, it is a couple of grand more than my posted build. And along the way I change the interior and the wheels, and so I've effectively de-contented a GTS. I'm also worried about the front end, which the configurator tells us reduces ground clearance significantly.

Does your interior look like my picture in my other thread (could I trouble you to look)? Or does it look like the interior picture that Trusted posted? Or does it look like something else? Can you tell me which options were selected to create the interior that you have?

Here are my 2½ cents on the Lane Change Assist feature. It's great to have as a first level of safety, and in a car you buy off the lot, but to me it's not worth $700 in a custom configuration. There is no audible warning, and the LCA lights can be lost in certain lighting conditions (e.g. sun at a low level). I have found that stick-on convex blind-spot mirrors, such as these, work fine, and keep you in the habit of checking mirrors before changing lanes or reversing.

Finally, with the pace of advances in automotive technology, this LCA feature will seem primitive compared to such things as head-up displays with 360° radar images (probably aftermarket too).

I actually installed the OEM convex mirrors because I had them on my 981BS. If I'd known how good the LCA was, I probably wouldn't have ordered the convex mirrors but I put in the mirror order before I got the car (it was being shipped to me) and I put them on before I had a chance to really evaluate LCA.
