Thanks and what do you think?

Have a great day!

Wow, that car looks brand new and those are some fantastic photos!

I have to ask if they've been photoshopped? That background is incredibly uniform grey.

Fantastic car! I usually don't like the grey, but yours looks great! Must be rather difficult to find twisty mountain roads in Nederland. Where to you go for the fun rides?

Hallo Coen, groeten van Long Island.
Congrats with your beautiful seal grey Boxster, most of the time it will match the Dutch skies perfectly.
Have fun driving, but watch out for all those speed cameras.

Thanks for all the positive reactions!! Really happy with the car!

There are some nice roads in The Netherlands.. just no mountains.
Speedcamera's are indeed all over the place but I know 99% of the time where they are so I can play sometimes

You guys have a great day!

greetings from cold but Sunny Netherlands

Btw.. what would be your first mod?

I am looking into fitting coilovers and maybe some spacers for the front but I am not sure what to do next

Maybe audio....? Was looking into aero pack but I guess it looks so clean and classy now and I don't want to ruin that look

Also wheels is rather difficult to choose haha

For now, I would get a magnetic oil drain plug and the LN spin on oil adapter. Make sure all of the fluids are fresh. Get an oil analysis to see if there are any problems lurking. Take care of the engine first. The exterior looks fantastic so I would leave it alone for now. Lots of choices for audio so do some research. I installed an iPad mini, a new head unit and pioneer speakers, very happy with the outcome. Have fun and take your time, lots of good ideas here

I'd also do the water pump and put in a LN Eng low temp t-stat. After that I'd look into getting a short shifter (I love my 9x7 short shifter) and, as it doesn't look like you have Litronics, this headlight upgrade:

The ultimate bi-xenon headlight retrofit kit for Sport & Super cars

It's is the most amazing update to the looks of the car.

I thought I was getting bit tired of the colour of my car, but seeing your pics made me love it again!
