Yes, go full carbon...it looks beautiful. 👍.
Curious, do you have any rationale or first hand experience with thermal/noise glass?Unless the goal is to maximize your Burmester experience, I would drop the thermal/noise glass.
Well, I do want to maximize the sound system, but I also like the idea to have the front windshield thermally protected which would cost me between $300- $400 anyway to do it aftermarket. I’ll still get the windows tinted aftermarket, but I don’t have to do the front windshield in this case. Makes the cost of adding this feature a little bit more tolerable.Curious, do you have any rationale or first hand experience with thermal/noise glass?
My only issue with going with the black calipers is that you can barely see them with the black rims, which defeats the purpose of having nice brake calipers, and on top of that you gotta pay $900 to basically hide your brake calipers. I would love if they would come in yellow like to PCCBs but not an option. As for the cargo management system, I really don’t carry anything, this is basically my daily work car, my wife has the bigger SUV (2022 defender) which will carry most thingsMissing the Cargo Management System and I would do the brake calipers in black with that build. Other than that I'd take it.
Thanks, money is not necessarily an issue, but I am conscientious of it. I’ve never regret spending more money on something, but I did regret trying to save money on certain things, so that’s what I keep telling myself😂No critique, you added everything. If money were an issue, I would say you could construct a similar experience for 30 grand less, but money is obviously not at issue.
Great points, my wife has ionizer on her car and she never uses it even though my daughter is always eating in the car and it smells like food all the time. As for the charger, it’s a cheaper option but I probably should try it out but I’m afraid it’s too late since my built locks tomorrowNice build! The only 2 things I would remove are the Ionizer and the wireless charger. I don't how well the ionizer really works but unless you live in an area with bad air pollution I just feel that money would be better spent elsewhere. As for the wireless charger I would say to try it out with your phone before ordering it because it can be very finicky. When I test drove a car with that option it would not work with my phone in its case and even after removing if from the case I still had to move it around in just the right position to get it to charge. After that experience it was an easy decision for me to not include that in my build.
My question directed towards rasetsu, I optioned the glass on mine for exactly the intended purpose, manage heat/sun and outside noise.Well, I do want to maximize the sound system, but I also like the idea to have the front windshield thermally protected which would cost me between $300- $400 anyway to do it aftermarket. I’ll still get the windows tinted aftermarket, but I don’t have to do the front windshield in this case. Makes the cost of adding this feature a little bit more tolerable.
My rationale is that I personally see no value in it because I like to hear the exhaust sound more, not less, I'm not a big car audio person, it doesn't darken the front side windows at all to blend with the rears, and it's much less expensive to have clear ceramic tint film applied to the windshield ($300). So if the thermal reduction part included slightly darkening the front side windows, then I'd be more interested in it but it doesn't and I don't want my cabin to be even quieter. Does it include the windshield? If so and you want the cabin quieter from exterior noises, then I can see the value in it. But that's why I said "I would" and not "you should" in my original response.Curious, do you have any rationale or first hand experience with thermal/noise glass?
I do. I had it on two out of five Macan’s. I don’t feel like there’s anything good or bad I do feel that I lost $1000 each time. The configurator leads one to believe that the windows are darker. That is not the case. One gets the privacy glass no matter what. Upon trade-in I got no love for those options. It also did not cool the car well enough for me not to order a second car when the first one lacked three zone air conditioning. It was an oversight of mine to forget the rear AC. Porsche included standard in 2016.Curious, do you have any rationale or first hand experience with thermal/noise glass?
