Did you get a build date before your freeze point was reached? We’re at 76 days to delivery (estimated) but I don’t have a build date….it’s in scheduled for production phase.
Got the email from porsche yesterday, with freeze date of 25th Jan.

I let you know when they fit it, not sure if to put in or out of garage and its not going to be on too much display if outside. Still not sure not sure on the mode 3 cable, as its only a couple of hundred quid and knowing my luck ill be out of juice at an AC charger that doesnt have a cable. Did you put the 150k charger on your order?
I didn't put it (150K) on. Again, with most of my journeys being within reach of home the SA didn't say it was going to be useful. On where we are likely to travel (destination) I will pass several Ionity and other fast chargers. So it wasn't important for me. Maybe I should have included, but I didn't. All locked now.

Re Build Date - That was only just given to me a few days before it was locked so don't rely on that as my lock date was Jan 10 but the factory locked it early which is why it may arrive sooner. You really should keep the build as correct as you can just in case. I had to sign for each amendment and was told to assume it was final. I think I amended mine 2 or 3 times. That only came from deliberating for so long since ordering in summer.

It's usually 6 weeks prior to build I am told. There is a good video (Canadian Dealer) who explains the process very well. I will look back and find a link. Its interesting.

Thanks for that im going into Porsche Silverstone next week to finalise before freeze of 25th. I will amend spec. and send it across now, just in case. As had Matrix lights on spec that,s with porsche, i assume it will have to be amended before freeze date anyway?

They will probably tell you they (Matrix) have to be removed if you had a previous configuration. Or it will throw an error. You can't configure them now unless they are fitted as standard (Turbo etc)

Did debate the GTS as that has them but had to change queues and no knowing when would get a slot. Am staying put now

Did you get an email from Porsche Germany or from the dealer? My car should be rolling out of the factory February 4th and I made the final changes is my configuration the first week of January. Would be nice if we could track the car while being build here in Europe like it is possible in the US.

I think my salesperson is confused- he says PDLS+ is paused but I think it's the matrix LEDs that are paused. Lmk if you get additional details!
You are in the USA the OP is in the UK
