Definitely worth doing, looks great.
Question: if it came with side intakes already painted body colour, would you have had them painted black to match the roof etc?

No? Nor me, so good choice 😂

I should have said side intake diffusers. The rear diffuser is also an option that can be painted. Same with the front. They don't put unpainted parts on 911s from what I can tell. Those parts are either painted or CF. So is this where the price point differences are in vehicles? In actuality, how much more could it cost to build a 911 vs a 718, mechanically? Prior to the 992, the interiors were virtually the same.
Your car is looking good!

Re: Unpainted plastics
Oh ok I get you now. Porsche seems to make you pay for things that are standard on other brands. Example: Keyless entry, folding mirrors, etc. The unpainted plastics are probably another way for buyers to spend a bit more money on options - although I don't mind them on my CGTS.

Just out of curiosity, are you constantly pumping warm air into that bubble? Seems like it would be an expensive heating bill over presumably 4-5 months?

It's room temperature air from the garage. The purpose of the bubble is not to keep her warm but rather to keep small creatures out.

What state do you live in, and what small creatures are you referencing? May sound sarcastic, but not my intent. I am not familiar with small creatures representing any type of threat to vehicles in my neck of the woods (southeast currently, and Midwest formally). Then again, admittedly, I have never owned a vehicle that hasn't been used on a daily basis.
