Couple of hacks

Here are some pics of my new smooth rear end and I just added the crested center caps to the wheels. These stock 17" wheels I figure are somewhat bland and needed a little zazz so I added the chrome wheel bolts awhile back and today the raised crest center caps. I think these rather inexpensive mods give the wheel a little more attention than stock. I have only had this car since around the 12th of Dec. '06 and I can't get enough of it. ANY excuse to take it out for a run and I am gone...When the weather gets better I will clean up the curb rash on the wheels.

Considerd it.

I considered the clear third brake light but have not made up my mind. I don't want to get too bland and I think the red is acceptable, at least at this point. The next trick is to accumulate enough to get the '03 halogens to clear up the amber up front. I do have the clear triangles on the way and will run it that way for awhile. Also what do you think of either the crest or 986 on the plastic aifoil between the seats where a lot of guys have been putting the Porsche or Boxster decals? I was thinking of the silver 986 stick on emblem. Your thoughts?
