Nice, it actually looks kinda good, donut and all, glossy black on red (clearly the best color for that car).

I guess Hyundai will see a run on its parts and start producing them overtime once Teslarati wake up to this. No wait, only 1 in 1000 will. Same with bmw spares, I seem to be one of three guys in the country putting them together. It was four before JST went over to the other side.

Sorry ZBB, I forgot to respond to your question about the trunk.

Mine closes very easily. If I drop it from the right height it closes on its own.

JST, how does that wheel deal with the 3mm lip? Is it just lug centric?

Honestly I didn't pay that close attention, but it fits fine, mates flush to the hub.

Thanks... Good to know. I canít drop my trunk ó and it takes a fairly forceful close to get it to close.

I need to call the body shop today...

Ship sank with 4 of the last 911 GT2 RSs en route to South America(?) for delivery (among a bunch of regular other Porsches, Audis, etc). Porsche is going to make at least one more GT2 RS to replace at least one of the sunk cars. Part of a poorly translated Porsche letter to customer waiting for delivery:

Quote:
As you may know, Porsche ended the 991 GT2 RS production on February 2019 and under normal circumstances, it wouldn’t be possible to give you another car. But, due to the nature of the situation, and considering that you’re a loyal and highly valuable customer for our brand, Porsche has decided to resume the GT2 RS production in Germany, and your vehicle will be produced in April, with delivery scheduled for June.
This made me think of the timeline of ZBB's car's repairs.

Every wheel is lug centric.
