Yellow Or Black ? Yellow Or Black ? Yellow Or Black

Wow,

Title sounds like a song Neways, I went buy the dealership today and saw a beautiful Yellow on black 996TT. I look so nice that I though about changing my ride (see link below).

My car is an 03 TT with 12kmiles and flawless. The car I saw is on 02 TT with 19kmiles on it with CPO

Should I do it ??? Wich one will hold its value better ? If I change, I think I will claim for some spare money...

Also, if My car has the giac chip, can the ECU be switched from one car the the other ?

Thanks

Based on my experience.... Both will hold it's value.. But Yellow is harder to sell since not a lot of people wanted to be flashy... It's more appealing to the eye but selling time might be tough for you...

I've been a fan of yellow cars so if you ask me, "Do It !!!!"

I like yellow. But is color enough to switch?

How much will it cost you?

Since your current car is newer with less miles, and you know the history of your car, I would save my money.

Couldnt agree more, Yellow is awesome and the novelty of getting a "new" car, but still just doesnt make sense to go to an older higher mileage car for a color!

I think it's a wasit to sell a car to get a year OLDER car with more miles.

#1 A dealer is not going to give you retail value for your car on trade in. So you will pay money for selling at wholesale and buying at retail. (unless it's private party, see #2)

#2 If it's private party, you still lose because you have to sell your car at retail, buy the new car at retail, and then pay taxes on the one you bought. Unless you sell for several thousand more than you buy you will lose money.

IMO yellow porsches look better on the computer screen than in person, didnt like the one I went to see at all, needs black wheels and dark tint to tone it down a bit.

However, it's your money and your opinion, so do what makes you feel happy

It's gotta cost you money...Dealers are too smart/evil to do an even trade.

I just stopped visiting the dealerships to rid me of any temptation, and simply accept the fact that I already have a nice TT.

Honestly, I love speed yellow. I think it would be a lateral move if you like it MORE than your black car. Your happiness will equalize the monetary loss in that case. Obviously your decision though.

CSD952 is an unknown quantity at this point
I happen to think the car looks best in yellow and if I had the personality to live with it I'd have bought yellow instead of Midnight Blue. If it has an Aero kit...done deal, the car couldn't look better, unless it also had a set of Champion RG5s....For resale, black is more plentiful but sell more easily. It really depends on whether you like the black or yellow better.
