What one person never uses another may feel the lack of a deal breaker . For instance I never used ACC or need a Burmeister radio. I don't even like keyless entry . Some people find all three imperative , 'I'm sure this has probably been discussed many times before, but with the multitude of possible options it doesn't take long to add $5,000 to $30,000 of options to a 992. From those with experience and aside from color, what options did you spec that you felt you "needed" to have when prepping a build that you eventually discovered you never use? Or didn't choose them and wish you had.
I can address how fast it adds up. I have ordered a lot of Porsches Vs buying right off the lot . When I buy a car off the lot I am already expecting things to either be missing or not desired . I didn't want my sunroof in my 991.2 . I hated my tow hitch in my last Macan . I bought them anyway . I bought a nearly stripped lot car the day after my ordered Macan Turbo was rear ended . Having an immediate car beat dealing with the repair and knowing the car was damaged. In contrast when ordering a car especially in these supply chain times the process becomes an ordeal . It can take months with delays sometimes and other times arrives earlier . Its still a pain . Plus there's the trade in debacle . An early trade closes that portion and waiting means further deprecation on a car you no longer want . Because of the hardship and inconvenience of the process I pull out all the stops and order more than I would normally .
On my current car just the PCCB and Carbon roof alone are 14K in options but I must say I love them . Would I have hated the car without them ? No . However it adds a nicer grin, looks cool as heck, increases performance , and I would not give either back to have the 14K . It doesn't always work out that way though . I spent 3K for Chalk on my Macan GTS and even though I like the color I am not in love with it . It still is the best of the "let me try something new" experiment but if given the choice I would go right back to jet black metallic on an SUV (not a 911 ... prefer light colors on the 992 ).
