For me it looks perfect.
Relax. Just my opinion.

It's your car as long as your happy that's all that matters.

911 Jetta, I haven't been on the boards in a while...I am glad that the tragedy of your old car has turned into such a beautiful triumph....new car, new adventures. COBALT obviously has bias, but it is a beautiful color, not Amazon Green beautiful, but beautiful none the less Seriously, beautiful car...

Nice find Mezger! I was wondering when it would surface again?

Wow, $45,000 US dollars!
It was a great driving 964, plus owned by a Rennlister...

The seller even lifted a picture of the car from Rennlist !!
A lot of the ask price is the cost to get the car imported into Europe.

I am so looking forward to your superior photos, mine are all iPhone and daylight here in LA is inevitably full sun; you will have some better contrast, and settings, I am sure. Keep them coming.
I like your mods, It looks clean and tasteful

If the car drives by itself, roll-on roll-off is about 1K$ to a large german port..
Taxes are on weight and VAT, max 20% of the buying price in Germany.
