With chalk or white, the gloss black aerokit looks great, otherwise, paint it to match car...

I've not heard the bose and have the burmester in my 991.2. It has not impressed me. Very hard to tune and frequency response drops off dramatically under 70-80hz

The 911, especially the Cab is not designed for great acoustics. Save a few dollars and go with the Bose instead of the Burm.

Jeff and I both know how terrific Burmester sounds in Panameras.....

I ordered my turbo with Burmester, however haven't heard it in a 911 yet. I get a mixed bag of answers here. Some swear by it in a 911; in fact I think most love their Burmester system in the 911.

Aerokit is pricey and you really have to like the look to take the dip IMO.

On a cab...chalk looks fabulous IMO...but you're paying extra for that again.

IMO I would spec Burmester before the aerokit.

I have the glass sunroof on my chalk TTS coupe. It looks great with chalk (and as I've previously mentioned in other threads I think the glass sunroof provides the most open and airy feeling of any sunroof I've ever had).

As I've posted before, the chalk looks so good in person that I traded in a 2017 for a 2018 just to get the chalk exterior.

I bought mine already heavily optioned off the showroom floor. It has deviated stitching, deviated seat centers front and back (chalk on black), and carbon fiber packages outside and inside. If I were to order a new one, the only thing I'd change is that I'd get the outside door handles in gloss black. I did that on my yellow Boxster GTS and the contrast looks great.

Sorry about that -- I've only had it four days and I haven't yet taken decent pics of it. It's hard to get pics that do the Chalk justice. I'll post soon. If you've seen Fashion Grey, which is a gorgeous color that arrests one's attention, Chalk is very similar except slightly lighter and with very faint warm undertones. My wife says she thinks the car looks like porcelain.

Chalk

I was going to do the Bordeaux black interior however Iím interested to see what the black interior with chalk inserts looks like what color did you do the gauges and belts and did you do deviated stitching

The gauges and belts are all standard black (which would have been my preference anyway). It has deviated stitching throughout (chalk on black). Looks classy with the carbon fiber. (Remember, I didn't order the car, my wife and I fell in love with it in the showroom.) As for black and bordeaux, I think it would look wonderful with the Chalk exterior.
