Huge favor if you have natural grey leather

If you have the natural grey leather interior with the gear shift and door trim in leather, please send me a PM with your VIN number, I would like to order these two items for my car but Porsche will only sell these items to those with the proper VIN number of a car containing these two options. Much obliged in advance! I wish I got those two when I ordered the car

You are joking - I have never heard of that one.

Who (and where is the dealer)?

Loren, this is actually very true! There are several options that must be factory ordered. You can't buy them from the dealer (any dealer) unless your car was equiped that way from the factory. A perfect example can be as simple as the leather fuse box cover- the dealer can't order one unless your VIN lists it with the orginal factory order. Strange but true!

You guys need to find new dealers. ;)

Sunset Imports or Carnewal.com will sell you any Porsche OEM equipment without your VIN.

Loren, you need to check your information too! You are not 100% correct. Bob and Eric at Sunset can not sell you certain OEM equipment, unless your VIN had that part from the factory. Call them, you'll learn a lot. Same for Carnewal. Not even Adam Miller, from PCNA After Market Sales, can assist in these cases.

Please check your information, and stop perpetuating your false comments. Thank you.

Let me clarify my response - you only need a VIN if the part is a special order item (from the Exclusive Department). These items would be things like deviating stitching, or special leather covered trim.

You do not need a VIN to order a (standard) leather gearshift knob, or handbrake assembly, steering wheel, etc..

... and IMHO a good dealer will find a way to get you the part you need/want.

These parts are in fact from the exclusive department so yes, I did need the VIN. I already got it from a nice fellow on 6speedonline that ordered EVERYTHING for his Turbo. Insanity but it gives me a good handle on things!

Thanks everyone!
