Can’t decide whether to add the GB lights and rear name
I’m going with Chalk exterior and I think it will blend but not sure if it’s really worth the ~$1350
Anyone get the rear name in GB yet and is this something worthwhile?
in the photo, does it look like GB lights?

Personally, I think the glacier blue daytime running lights would look really nice with chalk. I debated the same thing on my carrara white and worried it would be over the top but it turns out it’s actually quite subtle. From the front they look 100% white. It’s only from the side that you get a hint of blue and that’s mostly in low light conditions. When it’s bright and sunny out it’s almost a bit hard to tell. I’ll include a picture of mine in low light conditions and that’s a blue as they’ll ever appear. I was interested in the blue lettering in the back but it wasn’t avaliable at the time mine was produced. I thought it would be a cool way to highlight the uniqueness of the Taycan in the Porsche lineup.

Thanks @T-Fury
im leaning heavier in that direction as well so will most likely include

I for sure like the glacier blue lights in the front. I am debating if I want to get the rear name in blue or black (or standard). I think GB will be okay in the back but wondering if the black would be more clean.

I’m not happy with glacier blue on the front of my dark blue taycan - given the choice over I would not have done it again - I agree with other colors they can look good - but the option money can be spent on other non-cosmetic things that you’ll see/feel/touch everyday.

at the end of the day this a personal cosmetic decision and has no functional enhancement.

I have the GB headlights on my order (white car). I debated adding the rear in GB as well. It have decided against it. I actually like the look of the clear lettering. Black would be nice as well, but I think I will stick with standard. I think the GB might stand out a little too much. It is a hard decision though. I am also very reluctant to make any changes to my build as I don’t want to jeopardize my already very late delivery.

Initially I ordered GB on front and back, but I was told that the back GB are not available yet, and would have to wait...so I went without the rear GB. I ordered about 2 weeks ago.
