Anyone have a Gentium Blue GT4 in Hertfordshire?

Hi all,
 
I have an allocation for a GT4 and am trying to work out the details on spec - am pretty sure I have settled on Gentium Blue but am struggling with red or yellow brakes and interior colours.
 
I live near Welwyn Garden City - is there anyone nearby with a Gentium GT4 that would mind me taking a look in the flesh?
 
Thanks so much...
 
Rich

I can't help with an in-the-flesh car I'm afraid, but as Gentian is quite a dark blue I would Google for some images.  I think the German/EU versions of AutoTrader (can't remember the website names) have lots of cars for sale which may help.  I think silver wheels look best with Gentian, otherwise the whole car starts to look really dark, but each to their own  
 
In my opinion, I'd decide if you want PCCB brakes or not first.  That's the key decision.  Once decided eiither way, I think the two best looking combinations are:
 
* PCCBs, silver wheels, yellow calipers, yellow interior stitching, yellow seatbelts
* Steel brakes, silver wheels, black calipers, silver interior stitching, silver seatbelts
 
If you're going with the P11 bucket seats, then the carbon trim and sills ties everything together nicely to match the back of the seats.

Rich,
 
I think your best bet is to speak first to Hatfield to check either what's in stock or arriving in that colour. I would have thought that any 718 Cayman or even a 992 would give you an idea what it looks like in the flesh and in daylight rather than the showroom.
 
Colour combinations are a very personal thing, but I agree with Dave on the brakes - £5.6k is a lot to spend if all you're after is yellow calipers.!

Mine is Gentian blue with gold wheels, yellow belts and stitching, yellow brakes and carbon.
There is a test on YouTube with Shmee testing a GT4 in blue but with black wheels which confirms imo that black wheels don't work, link here https://youtu.be/ValdDz4IznU
 
Hope helps if your in Devon anytime let me know and you can look at mine
