I see a lot of this type of this type of thing on this forum. It’s normally something along the lines of:

” I am looking at a 2000 silver on black Carrera at Jose’s cash for car sales. It has no paperwork and 130,000 miles.
I do not know how to work on cars, I just want a change of pace from my 2004 Honda Civic. They offer 72 month financing.
Can I drive this daily?”

Then the op will only respond to or entertain comments that tell him its a good idea. Any good points towards not buying the car are ignored.

Bottom line is people will hear what they want to. They also don’t like criticism. That’s how society is nowadays. I always thought criticism is a good way to learn about oneself. Oh well!

Everyone can have an opinion... I hear plenty at Cars and Coffee. Not everyone likes my mods but I sure do love a good car chat so for or against, i love hearing peoples thoughts on mods (mine or others).

I think the stickers look ok. I'm more confused by the rear bumper and how it fits with the early 996 and the 17" wheels but I dont know if you have future plans for the car to upgrade other parts. I really like your interior! I can tell you really take pride in your car and its a hell of alot cleaner than mine. Kudos! I need to make time to clean mine up and not be "that guy" with the beat 911 lol

The OP crapped on what other people do to their cars in his original post.

Who recovered your steering wheel and airbag? Looks like they made the grip a bit thicker as well?

Hahaha true. "Tacos look stupid; unlike my favorite mod - knockoff decals."

Enjoy what you like. I think it looks just fine.

Thats what I was going for. Mixing the new with the old. I really appreciate your compliment. It’s reassuring.
Ive looked at my car several times since the insults came in. Bottom line I don’t care. I like it. Not to mention my wife and son thing “it looks great” “colors match up well”.
I know the internet can be a cruel place where people with mental disorders can come to play head games. It’s a shame this site is polluted to. With a little experience under my belt it’s not hard to see who is intelligent and who is not.
Ill pass on the child’s play and watch for the meaningful posts that can often be found here.
I wish you all well.

If you like it, then it doesn't matter what we think, it's your car.
Well said.

Overall, this is an excellent 996 thread. What keeps me shelling out my $17 annual fee for.

Ah, come on Brian. We're all like beer buddies poking fun at each other. Heck, I got faux carbon bits in my car that I think are ugly, but my wife, for some reason unknown to anyone, loves them and so they'll stay which means I'll have to put up with the funny remarks at car events. I've just learned to laugh along with it. Just like when someone comes up and makes the old "Is this a VW?" comment or talk about the headlights over and over again.

Like other people have said, it's your car put whatever sticker you want to on the darn thing. But please, avoid putting stick people and/or pets on the rear window.
