Protective Headlight Film

I'm still running the factory hardware on my '03 S with 67k, but I suspect the time is coming sooner than later. I second the bump-stops, they were an issue in my car until replaced.

While I respect the 718's better overall engineering and performance, appearance wise, there is no angle in which I feel it beats the 986.

Jet-Hot isn't too far from me, but certainly not local. They have some "nano-tech" talk on their site, may just be that... I'll see what shops are in my backyard and also talk to a few Techs, see it...

Did you use Jet-Hot? Has the coating lived up to your expectations for the cost? Jet-Hot offers three levels of coating, plus a lot of colors, but that adds cost. I'm looking at this more from the...

Jet-Hot has told me they coat the inside and outside of piping, but just the outside of mufflers/silencers so as not to adversely affect any internal materials.

Matching Wall Paint to Porsche Paint

I'm a little frustrated that, so far, I've not found a shop that can mix interior wall paint to match Porsche paint codes.
