Talking Cayman Side Vents on 987S done

I finally had time to install these vents. Thanks to Eric the plug guy who did a great paint job on them. Love the new look with the new vents & clear side markers. I also removed the restrictor plate on the driver side since I had the vent off.

So here are the pics...

I love that color and wow is that shiney! I never even noticed that the vent slats were different between the Caymen and Boxster but you definitely made the right move.

Hi,

Yea, I wonder how many Cayman owners are rushing to slap Boxster side vents on their cars...?

Happy Motoring!... Jim'99

Expect a slew of them (in a year or two) when the Boxster gets renamed to Cayman Convertible with a $5k base MSRP premium over the Coupe.

Excellent.

Those intakes are my biggest beef with the Boxster redesign. But that's just my
opinion.
