I bought my Taycan 4S here in the UK about 3 months ago. I didn't want to wait for delivery so purchased a used model with 118 miles on the clock. I guess in these difficult times someone found himself unable to hold on to it. It was the colour I would have ordered, Gentian blue, and had most extras I wanted. Not buying from an official Porsche dealer, (at the time there were none for sale in the UK) I missed out

on the showroom handover and set up etc. I am grateful to lots of members for posting info and videos which have been very helpful in helping me get everything set up, along with Porsche West London for their help. I think I finally have everything under control and working nicely. The video showing how to set up the 85% charging profile etc was particularly helpful. I have a tricky exit ramp from my underground parking garage and managed to damage a wheel. Living in London with those awful high granite kerbs I know how expensive it is to keep diamond cut alloys in good shape. I decided to find an answer that would look good and make the wheels cheaper and quicker to repair next time. I am really happy with the result and at least they are now one off.

Those wheels look nice! If you don’t mind - what was the cost to paint the wheels? And what type of paint is it?

Work was done by London Diamond Alloy in Battersea, London. The cost was £640 + VAT, not sure what paint was used but they are experts and I am sure they used the correct thing.

That looks much better than I expected it to!

I think powder coating is best, but I'm not sure if that's possible with two colors.

Great work - I am getting my custom one off factory wheels done next week. Maybe the moderator can setup a poll and we can see what the world thinks of our designs.

I have to say your design is absolutely awesome. If I had your wheels I would definitely copy your work in mamba.

Your bespoke wheels are quite spanking!
