Love your ride! Saw it first on CAR DOMAIN .COM

Does your car have wheel spacers too? Just curious. Looks great! One of my personal favorites.

I was planning to add spacers but decided against it. Based on measurements i would be right on the wheel arch.

I want to lower my car, but I'm afraid that it sits to low as it is. My front end has a lip on it that rubs up against stuff all the time. Like the idiot who designed the high curb that leads into my garage. It's like trying to drive over a speed bump. So I guess until I buy a house, I'm screwed. Sure would make my car look better. Not sure about how well it would handle. It seems to rough for daily driving already as it is. This is the first car I own that I did not lower.

Don't get me started on curbs. It sits relatively low and I even have to worry about bumps on freeways i.e. transitions from road to overpass. I am fortunate that this is not my everyday driver; it would be difficult driving it everyday especially with all the crappy roads in the Bay Area.

It looks great. Are those the genuine RUF body pieces? Mind sharing what you paid...

When people risk their lives, shouldn't it be for something very important?
Well, it better be.
But what is so important about driving faster than anyone else?
Lots of people go through life doing things badly. Racing's important to men who do it well.
When you're racing, it's life. Anything that happens before or after is just waiting.

I think I have EVERYONE on this forum beat on ride height. My GT3 front end with the lip sits EXACTLY 3 inches off the ground. I've replaced the lip 3 times since I installed the bumper...

EZE I feel you on the bumps even on the highway. I've come to learn all the lanes I must aviod on all major highways I use.

Do you have pics or website where i can find the boomerang?
The bumper and side skirts are genuine RUF. I believe the bumper and skirts cost me approx $2,900 not icluding paint and installation. I also have the bumper protected with an invisible bra. It covers the front bumper, side mirrors, almost half the hood and a section underneath the gas filler.

Thanks for the comments.

I thought that the Boxster "S" came with rear diffusers underneath? Is that the original rear bumper?

I think you're talking about the rear diffusers that are standard on both the base and the S model for 2003-2004 Boxsters...

I think a silver hood badge would really finish off that clean look... http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Porsche-Silver-Hood-Badge-Emblem-CLOSE-OUT-SALE_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQcategoryZ33643QQihZ001QQite mZ110122188295QQrdZ1QQsspagenameZWDVW

I did not realize that the rear diffusers were not introduced until 2003. Makes sence now. Your car would look even better with the diffusers added to the rear bumper. Color matched of course.
