Guys, i need your input on wheel alignment. What do you suggest for a road car? Will be driven in city, in twisties and on motorways as well. On the front i have stock parts except the camber+ bolts from topline, so i can adjust 1 degree more negative camber or so, back is from a stock 944 na. I have read different setups here, so real life experiences would be nice. Thanks!

Oh, I love how this turned out...
The fender widening is so subtle I didn't even notice it at first!

IMHO,
You want as much camber in front as you can get.
Unless you have over-steer issues, it's not enough.

In the rear, as the car is lowered, you get too much camber.
The 944 spring plates can help, but often do not do enough.

So, as much camber as you can get in front,
As little in the rear...

Thanks, exactly what i wanted

As for camber I thought about -1 in front and -0,5-1 in rear. For toe zero in front ant slightly toe in on the back...but exact numbers based on experiences are still well come.

Thanks.
No way carrying extra weight without function Back seat is in place for hiding the audio (future plans) and sound isolation purpose. Though I'm pretty sure you will find no passangers on the rear bank, but it is still nice to have access to the battery area or throw a bag there. On page 3 you find pics about the Wiechers seat consoles i am using, they are designed to pop the seats forward so there you go.

I was told they were Recaros but can't prove that as i could find no signs at all. Bought them in Germany (from a nice BMW2002), maybe they are vintage Konig or Wiechers ones.

However they are bucket seats the back is still adjustable in a 0-15 deg. range that's why you can see the adjuster on the outer side. Might be useful during a longer trip. They weigh only 6 kgs each, way less than the previous Sparcos (recliner) did.
