I like the front, but the rear is ugly.[xx(]

The back is fine except for that lip. I think the back still carries the traditional 928 feel but nothing beats the late seventies taillight style, then it was shocking...

The lights are a little too honeycombish for me....

If it jams, force it. If it breaks, it needed replacing anyway.

I guess it's the lip. But there's just not much going on back there.

Front is Modena-ish and nice. Back looks cheap and yeah, Trans-Ammy honeycomb-ish. btw those new led tails are a muthuhfu**er and when you sit behind one at a stoplight you can burn out your retinas.

^^^^^^^^
LED tail lights + stoplights
and
LED tail lights + rear fogs

Getting caught behind one aat a stop light is nothing, since it's only like 15 seconds. Getting caught behind one while driving for like 15 minutes.[xx(]

Good observation, I thought that too specially the side towards the rear...

Yes THANK YOU, I was stuck behind another idiot in an Audi tonight. Then, later, an S-Class. IDIOTS!

S-Class only has LED brake lights, but incandescent tail lights. The Audi on the hand, LEDs all the way (well depending on the model).
