My new spoiler

What do you guys think? If you don't like it don't worry, it's not mounted permanently.....

Looks good, but too heavy -it'll ruin your near 50/50 weight distribution..

Add a hat, scarf, corncob pipe, and you and Frosty should be ready for a drive!

It might be cheaper to paint the car to match the spoiler.

Nice Whale Tale!
It looks way better than some of the spoilers I have seen on the Boxster.

That's a real nice looking spoiler, that should make any one envious of your car, I'm assuming that the installation wasn't that hard? It has a real custom feel!

That will surely give you more downforce! Not sure about the drag increase though :P.

Lovin that spoiler.

not sure if I like the design too much - maybe you could sell it on eBay
