Every time I see a picture of your car it confirms that my next Porsche will be red!

side and rear view

Can you post side/rear shots of your car.

Looks awesome! I want to do the hardtop, once I figure out my engine issues.

I'm assuming this thread is because you added the center vent in the front bumper cover ? If that is correct can you go into more detail on vent part # and who you purchased it from ? And any in process install pics ? I think it looks good .

I bought off of eBay but I paid $69 because I bought on impulse. It's a factory Porsche part that can be bought from any dealer for around $45🙄
No pics but its pretty straightforward. Use the vent it self as a template. Hold it where you want it, trace around it, drill holes around inside edge and cut. You don't even need to remove the bumper. There is nothing under there. I know scary 😲
It isn't attached and doesn't have the black mean behind it yet. That should improve the look some.

They are Carrera II Lights. Finest wheel you can get on a Boxster. But then again I am biased.

Can you elaborate on what " It isn't attached and doesn't have the black mean behind it yet. That should improve the look some. " means ? Thanks

Looking good. Cutting and drilling holes in my car was (maybe) a little scary in the beginning...not anymore (especially after dealing with a z-top)

Sorry, the vent is not attached yet, just laying in the hole. It also doesn't have the black mesh screen behind it yet. Oh and the bumper is just stuck on there too. Waiting for the screens
