nice or rice,....that is the question

looking at this rear reflector piece / grille thingy...

i like the idea, but just cant decide if its a little ricey or not....

i am also looking for a place to put my "turbo" badge since i filled in my deck lid



maybe with some red LEDs behind it, hidden, hooked up to brake lights or something? i think i am getting to ricey,...

to much RWB for me

To me the idea is ok, but the application is not good looking to me. Seems wrong but maybe it's new and seems odd right now? I don't know.

Beautiful car, love the flares and wheels. To many stickers, stripes, and badges. Nice look until you get to the back end. The center reflector detracts from the flow of an otherwise great look and the wimpy duck tail makes it look like a huge, pumped body builder with a very tiny dick.

But opinions are like *** holes everybody has one.

I agree with Cole and think that the reflector panel looks "wrong" for sure. What do you think of the red fiber one that DZug makes?

Awesome car, Jim.
Fat and mean.
I agree with the others on the reflector.
Ronnies idea may be the go.

If its a grill, then you need to consider he may have done it that way to enable some cooling.
Different, I dont think its a ricer mod because it appears well done.....
However, the stretching the tires to the rims, that is what I am not a fan of....

If it is not a functional grill...ie cooling affect.... I would go with the stock Porsche reflector. I would replace the RWB with the Factory Carrera color matched to wheels script and put a little turbo script on the upper right edge of the duck tail. Get rid of the RWB on the deck lid as well.

Then it has the appearance of a factory RS, sort of, and I have always liked that look.

I would go with it, only if it was a grill and used to keep the temps down on the rear bumper. I don't like the look of it all that much but if you smoked the rear tail lights to take some of the contrast out, it might blend in better.
