wallmart had a special on Porsche Boxster dember kit, so i bought it
check it out. all the lights still light up as they should, i would say a fraction of light output is lost, nothing major at all

Not bad actually. I think it looks better than the orange and turquoise at least. One of the guys from a group drive I went on this weekend bought the real oem clear side markers and corners for his amber headlights, and then smoke tinted the remaining amber on the headlight. Looked ok to me.

You're certainly entitled to your opinion. But maybe you could be a bit less of a putz when expressing them.....

Happy New Year!

yea dude, i dont know what was w that comment, sure people are entitled to their opinion, but i dont know anyone that would agree that orange would look better instead of that silver i applied on there. it almost looks like it should have come on the car like that.
i uploaded better pictures, u b the judge

DJ, I think you're on to something. What if you had a body shop paint the orange bit the turqoise color of the car? I've seen silver and black boxster owners do this and it looks pretty good.

I like it plus it beats having to shell out so much money for the clear headlights. Looks good.

Ya, Daam421 said the same "stuff" to me when I did mine black. With all due respect... I think putz is a lot nicer name than what you really are, so chill out. I dont think ive done a better mod than getting rid of the halloween effect my car had. So DJ, did you go along the "orange top" or along the little indentation line when you masked it off and painted. I did mine along the top of orange so it was all gone, just wondering what your approach was.

Kronix, is that you?

Hey DJ, how thick of a coat do you put on. I wonder about how that will hold up to rocks, weather, etc. Did you do your sidemarkers? And are your front grills painted too?
