Anyone put front winglet spoilers on their Boxster?

I would like to see decent pictures of these. They look like they may be a nice little mod for very little money.

When people risk their lives, shouldn't it be for something very important?
Well, it better be.
But what is so important about driving faster than anyone else?
Lots of people go through life doing things badly. Racing's important to men who do it well.
When you're racing, it's life. Anything that happens before or after is just waiting.

Maybe it's just that picture, but, I'm not crazy about how it looks. I wonder if it's even really all that functional. If you like it though go for it.

That's why I wanted to see if anyone had a better picture. I think it would look decent in flat black on other colors but it doesn't look great in those colors. I'm not too worried if it is functional or not, just for aesthetic purposes.

It really is too hard to tell. It depends on what the product looks like up close, how it mounts to the bumper and overall fit and finish.

My initial guess would be that it is probably cheesy. But then again, if the design is good and it was painted in the body color, it might be sweet.

I bought a set and ended up listing them on ebay because I let them sit around due to not really wanting to put them on. They attach via one strip of 3m tape and would definetely need to be professionally painted and installed which I found out after purchasing them. I called performance parts to confirm and they said they definetely needed to be professionally installed . The finish on the product was pitted with many small holes from casting, and would reguire sand and fill primer before painting.
