ROK - Thanks for your comments. I agree, really love the options list on my car. I have thought about painting the seat backs but I figured going from dark gray to black would be that noticeable?

ELPORSCHA - You can certainly express your opinion. No worries mate! Wheels are very much a matter of taste. I've always been a sucker for the speedline type wheels. I also believe the 3.6 speedlines to be somewhat period correct and I really think they work well on a 993 (hell, on any 964 or 993), especially on the darker colored cars. I've always thought the mesh style wheels (cargraphic, BBS etc.) look a little bit busy. Again, just a matter of taste.

Derek - RUF wheels why not? . PM sent.

I think it'll make the seats pop more visually from the back. I'd just make sure to match the exterior color to the interior. It'll look amazing especially because the 993 hard backs are much more contoured/aggressive than the nice 996 back. I fell in love with sports seats after seeing colored backs on my cousin's 993 C4S.

I know, the black would set off the contours for sure.

I've also thought about making the car a little bit more track oriented. That would mean swappning the hardback sport seats for 993RS racing shells, which could also be painted black (the back of the seats). I would do them in black leather with silver stitching (just like the rest of the car) and then take out the back seats/parcel shelf and put RS carpets and a Heigo rollbar back there. That would also make it possible to setup a 5.pt harness, which would be ideal for track days. I've heard that the pole positions and the RS seats are actually quite comfortable, even though they are pure racing seats.

What do you guys think?
