Just got back from the shop. I know it won't be for everyone but I love it. My first Porsche so I wanted it to stand out a bit - enjoy!

The brakes are fine. The wheels not at all

i think you missed the point of adding neon contrast. the point is to make things POP out.....adding the green to the wheels ruins the entire effect of putting it on the caliper. Even worse is that your shades of neon don't match..

Over the top colours have always been a hallmark of Porsche and BMW, I'm kool with that but I prefer mine more on the sedate side.

It's just the lighting and the iPhone, everything was sprayed at the same time

I didn't want all black wheels anymore but I didn't have much of a choice as I bought CPO. No matter, I like it

I really like the acid green, just not the rim trim. Itís a bit much and draws your eye immediately to them. Thatís such a strong color....less is more. But itís your vehicle, as long as you like it brotha.

Btw is that stock ride height? Or at least stock PASM low setting? I'm well familiar with Macans (I have a Turbo) and I think that looks low even for a GTS

GTS has air suspension and PASM stock. I always drive in low setting. No modifications to suspension whatsoever.
