Pics of my box S looking mint from yesterday!!!

So me and my friend Paul were cleaning our cars and waxing them and decided to quickly take a couple of pics in my Garden before it got dark.
I think some of the pics look good and show of my wheels a little better still not as good as seeing them in real life.
We tried a few arty pics!!

He has a 92 VW Golf GTI 16v

Nice shots. The country in the background is lovely. I've got to go to Scotland sometime. Is that your house in the background?

yeah mine is on the left, Scarily my house is just off the city centre, i am so lucky to be where i am as its all main roads around me. But when you get to mine it is almost like getting away from everything, very refreshing. plus there is a river running accross the front of my house that leads to the north sea!! telling you my house is close to heaven!!

I like your pictures!
Your car looks great! The Golf looks like a childs toy next to the Boxster, though.

As a current owner of a Seal Gray S and a former owner of a '85 GTI (red) way back in college, I have to say these pics hit me in the sweet spot!

Mine are like that too, but it's not that hard to keep clean if you use a power sprayer at your local car wash. Mine bolts are chrome, so dirt slide off easy.

Great pictures, I love the country background as it reminds me of the wonderful vacation we had in Scotland, not to mention the cars in the pictures are some of my favorite cars. I owned an A2 VW 16v with the Borbet rims just like your friends many years ago and still currently own a 986s.

Thank you on the compliment, They are 19's!!

Thanks too all that liked the pics, and just to say i spray the hole wheels in meguires wheel clean, then , powerwash, use cotton buds on all the stud parts, then blow dry with a leaf blower then polish, 1hour all 4 wheels, but so worth it.

I think the Golf and Boxster compliment each other in the Pictures,

My mates golf is mint and about to get awesome as he is fitting, 2.7 boxster brakes powder coated yellow and yellow roll cage with an R32 with running gear. cool winter project.

Have more pics will load them up tonight after my 50 Cent concert!!!

The wheels make the car look more unique but I would save some money and get that thing lowered. Just my opinion but looks like a sport truck if it's not lowered. Very nice car though.

At first I thought you were riding on 20s All you need is to lower it a bit, and man that will be one nice looking ride. I love the country view background. Thanks for sharing.
