You look like you've got a kind of yellow theme going on so I'd maybe try to enhance that a bit more with some subtle extras like maybe yellow seatbelts or some yellow print on your windscreen tinted visor strip.

No hate comments from me :)

Nice ideas, thanks.i can see how that would bring the yellow in more. Its difficult to see but the calipers are also yellow 💛

I've just had mine done.. £35 + VAT per belt.. about a week turnaround from when they receive the belts..

I've had the dials changed to yellow too

I think the OEM GT2 clean look is getting on to be perfect for the 996. I would work towards that.
 
Awesome looking car.

I wouldn't remove the spacers all together, but they need to be aligned to the bodywork/wheel arch, poss 10mm or 10mm rear and 7mm front.

The rear lights to smoked lights.

:thumbs:
 
Looks like you have a roll cage, if its painted, that could go yellow as well.
Agree with others, change the rear lights.
Nice looking car
 
Another rear light changer here too - something more original but dark.
 
I agree with others. It's a personal thing of course, but I'm not a fan of black everywhere.
I'd try Weiss gold wheels, or if you want to keep them black, break them up with yellow rim tape. (I'd stop short of painting one spoke yellow like they do on Corsas.) Yellow driving lights would be something different.
Alternatively you could go for carbon mirror caps, intake trims etc. or introduce a third colour on some of the areas suggested.

It's a great starting point for experimentation - none of these things are irreversible!

Edited: I can see your wheels aren't black! Either introduce the same colour elsewhere (eg mirror caps, sun strip) or change them to even more non-black such as Weiss gold as above.
 
Your pictures, nor mine below, don't do your car justice.

I'm not a fan of black cars or of the 996 front end but your car looks superb and the subtlety in disguising the massive performance makes it all the better.

BBS wheels is perhaps the only change I'd make.

:thumbs:
 
Stripes! Maybe Martini?
 
Johnny Dangerous's car might inspire you. Headlight obscurers and nice wheels.
