LOL...I didn't even notice those 987 intakes. So I would keep them, if they blend in naturally...and they did. That black-orange contrast did the trick. Well done, Sir!

The car looks outstanding. The wrap looks awesome.

The side vents blend in very, very well. It's the black on orange.

Remains the nicest looking ride upon these pages. IMHO.

The front door to my home I painted tangerine orange about 5 years ago. Your car... my door...

Thanks for the compliment. The only problem I have with the 987 s side vents is they are so thick. If they made them a little thinner they would look better. I've got my originals if I tire of them

I went back to factory side intakes.

I also just noticed I forgot to put the splash guards on. 🙄

Looking great! Most likely, you are your own worst enemy nitpicking your work!

Wait a second, I may have missed this but how did you fit 987 side vents on the car?

They are "987 look" side vents. I bought them a few years ago and mount them now and then. I had them on and decided to switch back to the normal ones.

Do they fit into the existing opening and just extend down below that on the outside?

I think they look pretty cool!
