I like the dectanes Jem, gives the car a facelift you could try putting a mild tint film on them to reduce the bright red and make them sit softer with the Rotis Thumb

Phil you are right about the slight face lift which brightens it up
And the wheels are an expensive after market choice as they are 3psc but only on for the summer although I do like my crabs!

Keep the lights (although the smoked on a black car look better) and lose the wheels for good Thumb

Way better, I saw your wheels and sick came up !!

Not alot in the looks of the lights in the daytime, just blink and you would think they are the same, but at night the LED's will look heaps better.

Very smart looking.
New 997.1 owner and where do I get these lights and what's the damage?
Take it they are just plug and play? no errors on dash?

Okay let me know and I'll let you know both the correct size tyres and spacers front and rear to give you the same tyre to wheel arch look as a 997 GT3 RS. It will help the whole stance of the car not that it looks bad as it is. thumbsup
