I miss my USAF flying days, so the next best thing to do is to add some components from the fighter that you use to fly to your humble 928.
Modify and install a F104 control stick for the auto shift knob, sorry about you guys that have a manual shifter. And wire the gun trigger switch to control the garage door, bomb switch to control the radio, rocket switch to control index unit, and nose wheel switch to control radio sound.
Next modify the throttle control unit and install it to the hand brake assembly. Wire the mike switch to control the rear hatch.

Nice!

Two questions.

Which button is for front firing missiles to remove slow-moving fast-lane attendants, and, which button is for rear-firing flares to discourage oblivious tailgaters?

The watches are just for show, as I removed the rear A/C unit and have no use for the controls.

That's awesome! Replace the watches with an altimeter and airspeed indicator. :) but you'll have to install a pitot tube. LOL
