Love those carbon exhaust tips. I've been thinking about those but the fabspeed's were a bit pricey.

I have a base model too and dropping it and adding 15mm spacers all around is "required". It totally transforms the look of the car. I put Eibachs on mine and I think those are the perfect height. Its about 1" in the rear and a bit more than 1 in front. I would caution going more than that. The car looks slammed and the wheels get tucked under the fenders and dont sit flush.

Ps - get rid of that front plate and accept the consequences :-)
Thank you! The Carrera S ii wheels have a somewhat flush look from the factory on stock height. I will drop it to try and achieve 0 gap in the front and maybe 1/4" in the rear, and adjust as necessary from there. Any "tucking" issues will be taken care of with a more aggressive offset on the new wheels and I would get spacers for the rear if needed.

Also, I highly recommend the Fabspeed tips. I love the Carbon look and they are top notch quality.

Default Fabspeed Carbon Tips

I finally made it out with the 911 today, it sat all week! I have not fine tuned tip position and angles yet, but here is a snap from this evening:

Default Satin Black Carrera Emblem

My factory titanium emblem was peeling at the C, so I decided to take advantage of this situation and replace it with one that ties into the GTS style rear diffuser and carbon tips a little better. Today I installed a new satin black "Carrera" emblem from a 996, aside from the color it is identical to the 997 factory emblem. I will get some nicer exterior shots tomorrow, for now some quick garage pics:

Thank you

I shoot with a Canon 6D and a variety of Samyang & Sigma lenses (14mm f2.8, 20mm f1.8, 50mm f1.4, 85mm f1.4). Which photo in particular?
