Currently driving a black 4S whilst mine is back in the workshop to work out where a coolant leak is coming from..... Surprised . Hopefully it was just a loose clip.
Luckily i only live about 2 miles from the OPC and they were suitably quick to get it looked into, It was up on a ramp within 5 mins of arriving this morning.

If this is an April 1st joke, then Very Happy

If not, then it's obviously disappointing......I bought a new BMW 3 series a couple of years ago......at least it took me a couple of weeks to find out the A/C wasn't working....when returned to the dealership we found out it hadn't been charged at the factory ! So sometimes strange things do happen with new deliveries....

Anyway, hope you get it sorted soon and congratulations on your new car, it looks very nice..... Thumb

Cheers.

I wish it was an April 1st !
I was pretty relaxed about it, Sh!t happens. At least they gave me another 992.
So long as they sort it fairly quickly. I miss mine already..

On my 991.2 I had to have a very simple fix of coolant cap replaced as the cap seal simply wasn’t sealing. Easiest repair ever!

It appears that a pipe clip was not completely tightened/fitted correctly on the rad. They are doing multiple tests to make sure it isn't going to be an issue again and i'm collecting tomorrow AM.

On another note they had an Aventurine Green 992 being collected on Saturday. I thought it was Agate Grey! It is so subtle the colour and, whilst i prefer a slightly brighter 911, I was pleasantly suprised. If you want something a bit different that isn't bold it is well worth a consideration. Much more grey than on the configurator. Might go well with the wood....

Yeah, that's consistent with these photos. I need to see it in the flesh, but I currently want this colour, with the wood Laughing

LOVE the colour and the wheels! From your photo it seems very similar to iris blue on the 993, a Porsche classic that hasn't been in the mix for a long time.

Aventerine Green on the 993 is also very light-dependent, going for looking very grey to very green depending on the ambient light. Fantastic colour for the 992.

The colour looks very much like the 'Cobalt Blue' that I had on my 968, in the sunlight it had a sort of purple hue to it, it seemed to disappear in the early 2000's as everyone went for Silver, Merc-BMW-Porsche etc.

Your car looks stunning, love the wheels they go well with that colour.

Definitely a lot of hues in it. Really happy with the colour.
I picked up mine after the coolant pipe fix this morning and they had another Gentian Blue 992 with the standard wheels. Really happy I went for the Carrera Exclusive Design wheels.
OPC was really good and most apologetic about the issue.
A couple more pics.

Stunning!...

Small point, but I love that they have omitted the headlight washers on the 992, definite design improvement.

I'll take your iris blue 993 as well! Love that colour.
They really nailed the Iris blue, if/when i get a 993 itch that is the colour I will be looking for.

thumbsup Congrats OP, it looks beautiful. Hopefully the rad clip issue will be a one off as far as niggles are concerned.

Well specced up 991.2 will be in demand,most people can’t afford a new 992 so every 991 will be quickly sold .
