I have white ones and they don't get more dirty than my car.
This means you have PSCB-brakes which are covered in a layer of tungsten-carbide. Tungsten-carbide is about ten times harder than steel which means you will have approximately a tenth of the brake dust as normal steel brakes under the same circumstances.

Aha! They produce even less brake dust. You can get white calipers with those? I had no idea.

I think you are right- I really wish they offered a satin/Matt black mission e wheel, that would be my first choice.

Does anyone know what the difference is between the two full black mission e styles are? From what I can see on the configurator there are two options of a full black glossy wheel and that makes no sense.
Agree. Makes no sense, jet black metallic or black high gloss Which must look incredibly similar. Be interested if anyone has ever seen the 2 and which ones stand out.

Im leaving black/silver as refuse to pay £900 extra for the 5 extra spoke bits to be painted black. I think I’ll get them painted myself once it arrives.

Just checked and standard spokes are currently high gloss black so will get silver bits painted to match!

IMHO the Satin Platinum looks best on black or Volcano Gray. With Chalk I'd do standard black/silver or all black. These color-matched ones look great but I would constantly worry about cleaning them.
I had my white mission E wheels ceramic coated, and they seem to stay clean. YMMV.

The jet black has metallic specks in it as far as I remember. Gloss black is more standard. Dealer recommended gloss black as if you scratch it, it's gonna be much easier fix. So I went gloss black.

At last :clap::clap::clap:

Maybe chalk/ crayon club for us on the other side of the pond
Do you call chalk something else in the UK (like truck vs lorry)? Such a strange decision on Porsche's part to give the color different names in the US vs UK.

Chalk is called crayon in the UK and the rest of the world, it makes absolutely no sense since the name in German is "Kreite" which means chalk.

How come delayed? I’m crayon with nov 12th build complete so hoping not delayed. Yours could be one of the first crayon In the U.K. maybe?
