Porsche986, this person is selling a set of Artic Silver speedster humps with storage cover for $600. I saw this in the September issue of the Chicago Region PCA magazine.

The contact is 773-506-2711 or drbill715@yahoo.com

I have a set that I never use. I put them on the car once, but I cannot for the life of me figure out how to get them to fit in the rear trunk when they are removed.

Too bad I am not in the UK, I would make you a hell of a deal...

Nick

Hey Nick!

I have a black box and would buy those humps from you instead of buying a set I found in Excellence brand new for $349.00

http://www.gtmotorsport.net/street_prod/humps.html

Of course, you may want a lot more for them than these new ones. This company's advertisements and eBay sales are gonna really drop the price of humps in the future I think.

Randall,

When I'm ready to get rid of them I'll let you know...

I bought my Boxster used and traded in my Jaguar.

When the dealer sold the Jag they gave me a call and asked me if I had the other set of keys. I told them I did and I would be happy to drop them off.

When I got to the dealer my salesman told me the prior owner dropped off a part for the Boxster. In his office were a brand new pair of speed humps with the storage bags ! I can't believe the dealer gave them to me rather than selling them. Very cool !

They look really cool, but kind of a pain to put on.

BTW, thanks bmussatti !

Nick

Jeez, I put mine on and took this picture for the forum. I got berated for ruining the Boxster's beautiful lines. I cried myself to sleep every night for a month and swore to never disgrace the car with them again. I'm scarred for life, I tell ya.

That's where they are now. Getting them in there isn't a problem. Getting anything else in there with them? Now, that is a problem.

I got my original version factory humps about 5 years ago. They do fit in an empty rear trunk in the storage bags but you have to play around with them a bit.

So, figure this picture out....
