has been done. Does not look good in my opinion. Just like a duck tail on a 991/997.

Some things are meant to stay on the original cars.

Ive owned around 8 aircooled vws since 2004, so I know what the different styles Are all about. Putting Porsche rims on bugs, buses and Ghias is common yes. On a Box, no, imho...

I wouldn't have believed it, but I think this black Boxster with the black sided Fuchs looks great. Whoever did it seems to have done a good job, although not sure how he got them to fit so well.

Those new Fuchs wheels look so cartoonish. The original ones were not that large.

You're probably right. No way those are 16s
