Because it's one of the ugliest Boxsters around? Not to be mean... but it's really bad.

Found them here (scroll to the bottom):

http://www.porscheshop.co.uk/acatalog/porsche_boxster_engine_induction.html

But I think the $785 price tag (plus shipping from the UK) is a little outrageous. Maybe someone could make them out of plastic/vinyl (or whatever they make bumper cover, sideskirts, etc out of) and paint them the body color for a whole lot cheaper? They are pretty sweet looking though.

Hi,

Because he's tired of taking ******************** from his friends, strangers at every Red Light, Porsche Aficionados, even his Mother and Priest...???

Happy Motoring!... Jim'99

at a quick glance I actually liked the muffler CGT looking set up....not bad.....my guess is that after thousands of investment, its still on the slow side and he is itching to cure his need for more hp.....just a guess

Well, beauty is in the eye of the beholder so I cant comment on that too much. I think it is over done by quite a lot. The only other thing I see is that there is no interior shots at all. I would think he would at least include some shots of the seats and dash. Maybe a shot of gauge cluster to confirm mileage.

I think its a kinda cool car (mainly I like the single lug wheels), but the rear bumper just got f'ed in the A, lol. The mesh and rear diffuser thing look like crap, not to mention you can see the screws holding it on. The exhaust I do like though. Over done, but impressive none the less.
