I love those wheels...!!

I was thinking of getting a set for a 986 but I think they'd look horribly out of place.

Very nice! How about the same pic with the car left in color, I bet the tail lights would really set it off.

Please stop posting pictures of 987s. I'm going to end up doing something that will really piss off my financial advisors.

Ok - I am waiting on a customer to make a network change and it is taking forever, so I am looking for something to keep me occupied.

So my Boxster is going in to get the 'hibernation' work done in a couple of weeks and I inquired with the dealer about the clear side markers. So happens, they have them in stock and will install them while the car is there. $19 per side. Works for me.

On another note, I am not actually a doctor, my initials are 'dr' , hence the username. Although my wife is a doctor, so there is a Dr. Burton.
