Ha. Good spot. Those are gunmetal too I think


Because we refurbed them and chose that scheme:)

Its Stahl Grau 61W, correct to the Vesuvius edition with silver satin finished dish. They're Roock wheels.

As Chris said in his post, they would have been grey originally not body colour.
I'd get the original grey colour on the split rims (and even consider getting the 17 inch Cup 2's done grey instead of body colour)

I'm sure Nick, like myself stands outside of the illuminati circle, hence he's looking for something different/stand out.

Steel Grey looks great on a standard, concourse or an illuminati owned car but IMO it's one of those "meh" colours. Too light & not dark enough and certainly doesn't have the "WOW" factor.

Step outside the box and let your imagination run wild Nick. Thumb

I am a fan of coloured wheels, my dad has body coloured wheels on his turquoise 993 turbo which I think looks great.(there's a picture of it in the show us your 993 photos section)

The wheels were originally silver. This not a Vesuvius special edition, just special order paint. I like them colour coded TBH but will do something different with the Meisters.

The wheels were originally silver. This not a Vesuvius special edition, just special order paint. NB the colour of the door mirrors.

I like the Cups colour coded TBH but will do something different with the Meisters.

Ha. I like the really dark grey that's one of the Work options but it I'm still leaning towards gold or bronze...

Here's a GT3 RS in PTS Vesuvio (is that the same as Vesuvius?) wearing gold/bronze wheels:





Go for it! Very Happy.

I'm sure Vesuvio/Vesuvius are slightly different shades, there is code 40X and 40W, what is the code on your car?

Atlas Grey is on the same spectrum, a shade darker again. I've just done some Weiss Gold wheels for an Atlas Grey 996 GT3 and will have pics soon if it helps. but I think it works very well.

Attn Cableguy....is that your old 2S for sale at JZM for £93k??? Surprised

It's 40X. The German Porsche colour chart lists both as Vesuvio! I'm pretty sure mine was sold here as Vesuvius Metallic

Nice spot Chris and yes it is indeed my old Vesuvius 2S. Still wearing it's RS Steering Wheel & Door Cards and the body coloured Hollow Spokes which you refurbished. Thumb

I'm not 100% sure but it may have lost a few miles since I had it! Surprised

I thought so...7 years on those wheels still looking good but agree mileage seems very low Wink If only we’d all sat on these cars driving them like they were intended!
