Oh oh, I have only been on the forum a short while and even I know that you are going to be smacked for taking your Boxster through a car wash.

What I recall it that the only way to wash a Porsche is like a mistress, with the softest wash cloths, a gentle hand, bubbles, caresses with a dry towl and a sparkle in your eye.

To be totally honest, that doesn't look like the right place on a Boxster for some CF. It doesn't match anything or flow with the lines and stands out like a Nun in Las Vegas.
Unfortunately I don't have any creative suggestions for an alternative....maybe someone else does?

Yes, but I like it a little rough.

You’re right on the design it does not flow, this was my second attempt, and my wife is my biggest critic. I am working on more designs that will incase the indicator too.
