Hey Everyone…First time Porsche owner and new to the form!

After what I would say is a lifetime, we are humbled, blessed, and delighted to share our 2023 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S.

Pouring rain and all…we took delivery today, Friday, March 10, 2023 from Porsche Ontario!

Straight on a flatbed to GP for PPF, Ceramic & Tint.

I only drove it on to the flatbed and off the flatbed :)

Will share more pictures & videos of the process!

Looking forward to everyone’s feedback, ideas and suggestions.

I promised myself no mods but already ordered the clear side markers from Suncoast ha!
Congrats Sway and welcome to the Forum! Some compare this unique experience to fatherhood (without the diaper changing)! :p And your "baby" is beautiful.

While we wait for your first driving impressions, if you wish please share your build and and let us know what made you go for AWD? It is an ongoing debate on the Forum along with....side marker preference. LOL!

Finally, MT or PDK?

Looking forward to reading you.

@CH61 Appreciate it much bud. In my humble option, all wheel drive on a super car is a must. Besides the obvious advantages in wet or snowy conditions, I want the advantage of all 4 wheels working together for my overall driving and safety. Plus it’ll come in handy at PECLA. Bottom line, to each their own! Side markers just make it look cleaner and flow seamlessly with the headlights and the twilights. Ohh and PDK here! Below are the build options:

Carrera White Metallic
Full Leather Interior
Rear Axle Steering
Model Designation On Rear In High Gloss Black
“PORSCHE” Logo On Rear In High Gloss Black

Porsche Crest On Headrest (Front)
Exterior Mirror Lower Trim & Base In Exterior Color
PDK Gear Selector In Aluminum
Central Techometer In White
Under Door Puddle Light Projectors
Sport Chrono Stopwatch Dial In White
SportDesign Side Skirts
Ornamental Porsche Crest
Sport Package
Sport Chrono Package
PASM Sport Suspension (Lowered 10mm)

Premium Package
Lane Change Assist (LCA)
Ambient Lighting
Burmester High-End Surround Sound System
Power Folding Exterior Mirrors

Your 992 has ALL the goodies! 👍 Enjoy and drive safe.

Same here . I mentioned it on Macan Forum and it ruffled some feathers turning it into a debate . My guy also won't do them anyway .
Seems to be 50/50 split on all the forums on whether to PPF the headlights. Porsche does not recommend it. I didn't find it but apparently there is an explicit notice in the owner's manual to not apply stone guard to the headlights . On the 718 Forum I read "If you apply PPF on headlights it will void your warranty on your headlights or anything related to your lights". I can understand why some installers refuse to go against Porsche recommendations (likely for liability).

So, If you crack your headlights it’ll cost you $2k each to have them replaced. If you have a warranty claim on your headlights denied as a result of having PPF fitted it’ll cost you $2k. You’re damned if you do, damned if you don’t.
