Default New to me 1988 944 base coupe... questions / comments

I already posted a couple questions last week but I took some time to shoot a couple pictures today.
The car is dirty as I have driven it a bit in the rain to get it home.
1988 base coupe miles in the low 80's, standard interior but has some sort of side skirt kit, boxster 17's and what looks like a euro front bumper.
Anyone recognize the body kit or bumper? Also being an 88 wouldn't it have air bags?

Every single service record from new in a folder !!!
Clean carfax (for whatever that's worth) consistent miles on the carfax.
Belts done in 2016 7k miles ago. Hatch done recently. Well cared for.
Could use an alignment and its a little rough at first idle.
Paint is a little oxidized and could use a good polish and wax.
Interior is excellent sans shift ****, NO cracks in the dash!!
Runs and drives fantastic.
Dash lights are a bit dim.

Thoughts? Questions? Feedback on any "must do" before I start using it?
Thanks!!

Nice buy. Congratulations!
The dash lights were never very bright on the 944's, even when they were new. There are some who have installed brighter bulbs and lined the interior of the panel with reflective metal foil for a brighter look
I had to do a double take when looking at the overlapping pictures # 3 and 4. The seamless way that they go together, It looks like your garage has an asphalt roof with standing water on it.
Cheers!
