New wheels, 5mm spacers, WLAN, LED

Recommended Posts

Last night I went into the Porsche USA website and loaded the configuration of the car I'm planning to pick up in about one month. The website asked if I wanted to convert this configuration to the New Model Year configuration. I said OK vs cancel which wouldn't let me continue. It immediately asked me to remove two options if I want the 20" Spyder wheel which was in my configuration that I'm planning to pick up in Leipzig next month!: 17mm spacers for rear wheels and the exterior color wheel extensions. I then noticed there is another (second) 20" Spyder wheel that specifies 9.5" width and a new option for 5mm spacers on all wheels (not allowing the 17mm spacers for rear only that was in my existing configuration--which is no longer available in my configuration!) and allows the exterior colored wheel extensions. I also noticed there is a WLAN option now and LED additional comfort lighting.

I'm curious about the 20" Spyder wheel differences. Can anyone elaborate what differences there are? It appears this was done for the new GTS but is available for Turbo which is what I have planned. Sure would like to know what other things have happened in this "new model year" and how can an option that I have selected be suddenly not possible?
