Haha, no so much about top speed in the highest gear, but rather how quickly you get to speed!Be careful about "road trip run-in" as extended periods of constant rpm are also a no-no.
With my PDK I was never frustrated at having to stay under 170 kph.
On past cars, I've usually occasionally changed gears if I'm doing a constant speed, in order to vary the engine RPM
I just saw that in your other thread as well, according to the online manual, it still states 2000, but it may not be updated yet. We can hope anyway. Anyone with a 2019 718 manual in hand to look?Firstly congratulations but regarding the break-in Porsche has decreased the stringent requirements for break-in for at least the GT3-RS and GT3. It states now (see attached jpg) 1K miles for break-in and keeping it under 7K rpms. Now it still may be the same for the 718 with 2K miles/4k rpms but if someone could check the 2019/718 manual it would be interesting to see if the break-in requirements have been relaxed.
I actually don't care for the black wheels. I think they're over-done these days (at least in the US). Under the "wheel accessories" section, I'm opting to have them painted in Satin Platinum. And I always like having my sporty cars being bright colors. Both my current Audis (RS5, and RS3) are bright blues (Sepang blue, and Ara blue, respectively)!Nice spec! In many ways it is like my current Megane RS 265 Cup - Yellow and black! Personally we would differ on the interior trim in exterior colour (this is a really bold choice!) and Porsche crests on both the seats and centre console; I would pick one or the other, but not both. Wheels on my current car are also Matt Black, which goes so well with yellow paint. So while i'm not keen on black wheels for my next car/Cayman I think they make sense on your build.
Also, as per Nick Murray, you can buy the aluminium look fuel cap cheaper form Porsche parts so rather buy it that way.
I looked at getting the fuel cap afterward, on the build it's $160, from porsche parts, it was $184 as of last night. Just looked at Suncoast, they have it for $150. With shipping, I wouldn't really be saving anything. I originally actually wasn't even going to get it at all. I mean, I know $160 is chump change in "Porsche Money," but it's still $160! That could be a fairly nice dinner, or a full tank of race gas!! Not to mention that nobody would ever even see it. But then my SA showed me the standard cap, and then another car that had the "aluminum look" cap. He has it on his, and says he smiles every time he fills up with gas. lol
And you may be right regarding the Porsche crests. I'll have to consider that. I'd like "GTS" embroidered on the headrests, but since as best as I could tell, that's only available with the GTS interior package, which I don't want (I want ventilated seats, ergo leather seats). Maybe it's something my SA could do on his end though through the Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur program
