When people risk their lives, shouldn't it be for something very important?
Well, it better be.
But what is so important about driving faster than anyone else?
Lots of people go through life doing things badly. Racing's important to men who do it well.
When you're racing, it's life. Anything that happens before or after is just waiting.

I like it except for the hideous tailights.

Thanks

needs more rubber...I can hear the wheel rim scraping on a hard turn already.
The gotta do something different with the headlights as well.

edit: I just realized this is a 986 with a 987 front end.
my worst nightmare come true. Those two don't go together.
Kind of like putting a 997 front end on errr anything!

Actually, isn't it a Cayman front bumper? It makes it almost look like a New Beetle up front.

Yep, tail lights don't do it for me. For some reason, I think the solid red 550 lights would look best on this.

I think id like some beans to go with that rice... it saddens me to see this sometimes, i like the rear bumper, but there is so much noise in that kit that it takes away from the sleek design of the car.

I wonder how does the light look like at night?

Nice wheel, the front end doesn't look that bad either, but the grasshopper tail light is out of proportion IMHO.

Hi Z-Art, I'm from Italy ( ), and I'm going to buy a 986. I don't like so much his original headlamps and bumper, 987/Cayman front is better.

I want to say If your kit is do with Cayman original parts modified to fit on 986 or if they are similary to the originals but whole re-projected (in which material?). (Sorry for my language )

Can I buy the Cayman original parts and do the work to myself? (I'm a ... car varnisher... I don't know the exact translation for "Carrozziere")

How much costs front 987/Cayman headlamps? (Euro for Italy)


Thank you very much!

Can anybody identify these wheels? I am referring to the picture with the dude standing next to his car. I like them (the wheels, not the dude)...from what I can see of them.

I also like these wheels...do you think they would affect the handling?
