    I agree, just interest in opinions.

    I like all three, but swayed towards option 3.

    Thanks guys :wub:

    Everyone's different i suppose and its down to personal preference. I don't have S3 skirts on mine but i think it looks great without them. It would look better with s3 skirts but i am in no rush to buy some haha

    Paullie,

    I'm lost for words - your car looks awesome! What's suspension setup? Springs of Coilovers?

    Aww thanks very much, Fella! At the mo it's just sitting on H&R 25mm springs, but soon to be swapping them out for Eibach Pro Kit springs, Koni FSD dampers and Whiteline Anti Lift Kit, so won't look much different, but without the bit of reverse rake it's got. Thanks again for your lovely words! :wub: xx

    My new 19 Porsche rims with Michelin pilot super sport tyres. I have read mixed reactions about these wheels but I like them + they are very light and well made.
    Before, now winter wheels.

    Always wanted to know what those Porsche wheels would look like on an 8P. Are they reps, or did you manage to get 4 fronts?

    Genuine. Took a lot of finding at the right price, got a couple from eBay and other two from Porsche breakers.
