Well, despite what it may look like from the photo, the tips are installed correctly. You can see from the FVD picture below that the tip pipes are curved and offset such that there is only one way to orient them. When you look at them closer on the car, especially from above, you can see that the taper actually matches the shape of valance pretty well. I like them, anyway.

Polars do carry more, historically speaking . . . .

SML, How about a shot of your car with the OZ wheels just like the one Etom posted in the picture above. I would like to play in Photoshop with different color wheels. It would be interesting to see what gold, silver, gunmetal grey or bronze would look like.
Thanks in advance

I looked at a 964 the other day that was a silver/light purple color depending on the light. Any idea what this color was called? The color has sort of grown on me, although I am a big fan of most of the early 911 easter egg colors from the early 1970's.

Sure .... but I what happens if I think your photoshop tweaks look better than my black selection? ... I could be very disappointed

I thought the orange would look good and actually would have picked orange if they were in stock!

Well, you would just have to buy a new set of wheels and then sell me the black ones at a VERY discounted price.
