Mmmm....I don't like it that low and it needs airflow bumpers. Excellent photshopping skills though. Props.

Yeah it got too low after I put the airflow arches on. I put a slant nose airflow bumper on it though. Also, photoshopping is about taking that extreme to paper, I sort of like doing it.

Call me boring, but I think that the original looks so much better.


Edit: But nice photoshopping anyway!

I suppose it is. But again that's the beauty of photoshopping; doing wild things to see how they look.

I guess i'm the only one who really likes a classic unmodified flatnose vert, it would be too cool!

Depends how much you have in it... the rims are standard 9-3 Aero fare, you can get a set of 0 mile takeoffs with tires pretty cheaply. Then go find a set of 4x4 1/2 inch to 5x110mm wheel adapters, bang your fenders a bit to make the tires fit and you're set. The Swedes run a lot of those adapters... however most of them run the later 4x4 1/4 hubs.

Here's a quick one I did of my next mod....

I bought these, and bought some 3M headlight protectant/tint from StickerCity.com


the stuff went on great, its easy to work with. after the install, it should look like this by the weekend:

I prefer the original, but I'm a boring "old fart stick in the mud"
The C900 'vert was released post-facelift, so pre-facelift examples are über-rare!

Here's one:

I know the history of the 900. I was actually expecting the older members of the forum to tell me that shiny things looked bad, but I was just offering an extreme solution to the 900 vert. I would not really want to drive that thing. It's way too low and the tinted lights look funny. But I like the spg/airflow bits and wheels, minus an inch or two.
