    I wouldn't get the navigation. I have been happy with the Car Play and the Apple Maps app. I did the PEC delivery last year but it was free then... Still worth it IMO.

    I would do the leather steering wheel if your option lock date has not been reached yet. Alcantara wears down quickly - especially on a steering wheel. I also don't like the feel of it but that is personal. There is nothing like feeling leather on a steering wheel.

    I have Alcantara in parts of my 911 (ceiling, A pillars etc) but not on any wear surfaces such as seats, transmission lever or steering wheel.

    2018 Carrera 4 (991.2) European Delivery. Video in development.

    Planning:
    2022 992 GT3 European Delivery - Target: Nurburgring
    2026 911 Targa 4 GTS (992.2) in Lava Orange. European Delivery. Target: Amalfi coast and Sicily (Targa Florio)

    ^^^ I'm a great fan of Alcanatara - it actually wears better than leather - you just have to be a little more careful with it and from time to time give it a quick wash with a small amount of warm lightly soaped water.

    If you do this it comes good - almost new. Leather on the other hand, goes shiny and the bolsters get very worn. If seats aren't used evenly the interior can start to look odd e.g. one worn seat and one unworn seat - (as per my 911 after 9 months). By the same token some people just don't like Alcantara - I get that, its not for everyone.
