Self Ingratiating Photos of My Boxster

I have made several changes to the Boxster in the last couple months putting it back to what it looked like when I bought it 15 years ago. Simple things like taillights and the stereo. I had photos when I listed it for sale a couple years back, but nothing recently. So, today was cloudy enough to warrant some new photos.....

Hm, you should put 3 things on the todo list to get back to OEM:
1. Steering wheel.
2. Orange indicators in headlights.
3. Rear arm rest on center console.

Something about that shifter doesn't look right.
You should probably send it to me. You know, for uh... inspection.

Your car looks great with mods and without. You are trying to get back to stock but I guess there a couple of things you've chose not to address. Besides list above it looks like exhaust is aftermarket (looks great BTW). Was red console original on your car? I didn't get my car until 2008 so I really don't know what options were for the console back in the day.

Your wheels are my favorite style by far.

That is a really fine example of a 986! You should be proud.

I did. A fellow board member got it and installed it.
