Thanks!

I'm not sure if these are too much of a "jerk Porsche guy" look or not, but I ordered a set.

I put one on a couple years ago. I like it, its not to blatant and it only appears above 75 mph Or when you push the little button

Hmmmm, its curved the right way but not enough and has created an optical illusion. Glad I don't have to look at it.

My "Boxster S" decal in silver arrived today. It has lifted off the backing paper in several places and in other spots has lifted off of both the backing paper and the top clear plastic player and has got some creases and wrinkles that I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to get out. Maybe that is why they are on clearance? I'm going to give it a shot this evening and see how it goes...

Edit - looks like I am all panicky over nothing, found this video which looks pretty straightforward...

Had mine on for a couple years now, don't think I look like a Porshce Jerk..it is subtle in my opinion and as others said you don't even see it while you are driving!!

If I had to do it again I would have gone 2-3 mm higher and not had any of the bottom of the decal be on the groove in the spoiler backing plate. There are a few tiny wrinkles but overall it came out pretty good.

Intersting....

...so what does the collective think about "Porsche" vs. "Boxster" vs. "Boxster S"?

I think I like the way the "Boxster" without the "S" looks better than with the "S" or the "Porsche".

It's going onto my 2004 "S".


Hmmmmm.......

Whaddya think?

I have an 04 S. I purchased the Boxster S decal, but I only installed the "Boxster" portion.
