Where can I get these side air scoops?

I sent a pm to the member that posted his Boxster picture, but the post was from early 2012 and he only made 16 post here, so I'm not sure I will get a reply back.

Anyways I dig these side air scoops and I'm wondering if any of you would know where I could get them.

Thanks!

Actually, more the ground effects (skirt) to me. Kills the design. If the scoop is removable and helps at the track.......

I thought the right was a vent only. Could increasing induction there damage anything?

If this is what you like and are looking for on your car...go for it. But you need to consider also, there are lots you can do with your OEM to modify your look as well. Here was my take on a mod for my build.

Is that right? So much for the scoop idea then.

Thanks to those posting other options, much appreciated.

Hey Danger, you have great taste! I just ordered those side vents from FVD a couple of weeks ago. They are on their way from Germany now. I think they will look great with my AerokitII front bumper and sideskirts, and the Speedster style rear diffuser I am adding this Spring.

I wish that I had known about that. I have a connection to a supplier that probably would have saved you a lot.

Hey Danger, I should have known to go to the body kit expert before ordering parts!!
I got a slight discount from their list price anyway. Next time I'll know better.
Thanks!

If Rhonda helped you, then you were in good hands.

Pax side is actually a vent with a thermostat-controlled exhaust fan (to rid the engine compartment of heat) behind it, although I doubt the fan kicks on any when the car is at speed. I hear mine come on in summer when I slow down and am creeping through a parking lot.

Yup, it was Rhonda. She worked with me a few years ago on my FVD/Brombacher 'sound version' muffler too. Great service!

I'm sure there's room to beat them up a little.
