Looks amazing.

Are the wheels the standard colour?
Also cheeky i know, any chance of a pic of it in the lowest setting?
I really want to order one of these but its so hard to find a nice one to view here in the UK at present

Yes Ross, they're the standard unpainted wheels. They had a demo CT with black gloss painted ones at the dealership and they looked very nice too but I think these show up the details a lot better and I love the 'two tone' effect of the painted and polished sections.

I'll have a go at taking that pic but it might not be for a day or two as it's a busy weekend... assuming it's not already at it's lowest of course!

It's a very hard colour to photograph, most shots (particularly from phone cameras) make it look white. It certainly suits the CT in the flesh though.

Beauty - Congrats! I've ordered these wheels in high gloss black, my body color being Volcano Grey. Had not appreciated the level of two-tone color on the std. wheel - may need to look again at this!
Would like to see the referenced lowest setting pic too - TBH every time I see the stock height/stance I cringe a little as it really is crazy high. Planning to install the FVD links to lower by ca. 1" but again need to see more of this car in the Sport Plus/Range Mode lowest setting to get a better feel of how much I will ultimately set the lowering to.

This is what I'd prefer my stance to be:

They’re the ‘Deep pile floor mats with leather edging’ (in the Interior Leather section of the configurator). I’ve never specced them before but would do every time now. They’re more luxurious than the standard ones and have a large colour choice of leather. You also get to keep the standard mats which we’ll put in when going somewhere dirty/muddy to save the deep pile ones. Not particularly cheap (what is!), but not bad value when compared to some other options.

Looks the business indeed - but would say that as we’ve ordered something very similar

enjoy your first weekend with the new motor :) 👍👍👍

Looks incredible!
Just when I convinced myself to drop down to the 20” off road design wheels you do this to me! Looks like I’m sticking with these!

What are FVD links? Also what route you going down to colour match the arches?
There are at least a couple of options to replace the stock fixed length plastic links in your air suspension with adjustable aluminum or steel variants. Options on other models have been around a while. Vivid Racing is one option but an established high end company like FVD (Germany based with warehouses in Florida) is a step up imo - this can be a total DIY if confident or a relatively cheap 3rd party install cost. Units themselves really affordable. Right now I am awaiting a call back from FVD to be 100% certain the CT does not have anything different re suspension setup vs the sedan:

As far as paint goes I am looking at a couple of reputable Porsche specialists locally in Houston but will even consider the dealership body shop if they give me a street-value option as opposed to Porsche tax :)! My extremely rough and ready graphic edit is pretty bad but gives a feel - actually did an identical 'upgrade' to my wife's Mini Cooper S years back and it is simply night and day - def doing it to this car but want to be 100% satisfied with color match, quality etc.

Didn't know they could be lowered even further. Cheers for the link something I'll look into once I get it.

Yeah I was 100% looking into getting the arches colour matched but wasn't too keen on having them removed to be replaced or sprayed. If I can find someone do it whilst on the car then it's something I would explore.

Beautiful car! Definitely the best wheels with the CT. My dealer put me off the mats with the edging but I agree your looks great - can you show us a picture of the front mats?
