I usually don't like the headlight pod removals on the 928 because it is such a powerful feature of the car.... But this one actually looks pretty good compared to most...

Strangely, those wheels look good painted white. Would probably look a lot better on a different car, like a VW or something...

Will you guys still like it, if I tell you the headlight covers come from a Fiat?

At first I thought the headlights were flush but after a closer look they are rounded over each light lense. Looks good, but not as good as the existing lights. You loose the shark look.

I agree. I would never do this myself. But it's a neat idea for those who WANT to change something.

My preference would be this, though:

IMHO, add nice wheels and GTS mirrors and that would be a really fine-looking car.

They make very similar headlight conversions for C5 vettes. If someone liked it enough, I'm sure they could graft them onto their car. I'm not recommending it though...

Takes away from the classic Porsche look, but looks OK. I prefer the stock look myself.

Anybody notice the modified rear spoiler?

Funny thing: It's advertised on German mobile.de, but getting this car registered in Germany with some of these modifications is probably close to impossible.
