I like it. I suspect it is very pricey mod, all in. It puts the headlights a tad low. I wonder if you would get any push back from law enforcement?

Yeah, thought there were regulations on the headlight height. This would be really cool with pop up headlights.

Not my style (I don't really like the real slantnose 911's and yes, I have driven them) but I appreciate the effort, it looks like a high quality mod!

Love it. Better with Boxster with side scoops. May not be street legal but Iíd like huge round headlights in bumper like 935.

Flachbau /slant nose was never my thing. Did not like the 935 very much, UNTIL they released that

...much more refined. You can tell, that design was top-priority right next to performance.
That is the only Porsche 911 slant nose I like.
