Liking the oil pouch and alcantara to match headlining.

Anyone applied rear arch stone chip vinyls?

The old umbrellas seem a bit pointless for the cost of them..

Royal steering wheels did mine, fantastic quality of work.
You can buy the gear knob from Porsche with either red or blue stitching and they will trim the other parts to match. I bought a wheel and handbrake handle so the car could go back to standard if needed.

The oil pouch has Velcro on the back so it sticks to the carpet to stop it sliding around.
Umbrella is expensive yes, but has saved me a few times.

Silver coated indicator bulbs are another easy thing to do.

Sounds good, I bet your interior looks sweet with the addition of coloured stitching. Mines a tip and the gear nobs crested which I was told is an optional extra??

Defo need the oil pouch tho Very Happy

I would grab an umbrella if one comes up..

I just got a nice pop up one from Amazon with plenty of 5* reviews, just measure the space available and buy one that fits. £10-15 IIRC, fits snugly and looks the part.

Oh I didn't know it was tip.

Short of a manual conversion this is the best thing you can do:

Sadly no.. it's the holy grail of 996 accessories .. It came as standard with 4Oth anni... They sometimes come up on Ebay but the reserve price usually starts at one kidney or a right arm. Laughing

There's a set on US eBay at the moment, and I'm in New York, but they look knackered - water damage.
