BEST BOXSTER EVER! I seriously don't know what else could be done to your ride. Dude get that 3.4L like we've been talking about and your ride could dominate just about anything on the road.


AWESOME JOB DUDE!

(get a new driver side floormat,I can't tell if it's a whole or stain but whatever that white/grey spot is kinda stands out)

My favorite part? The subtle but distinctive silver hood crest. Gotta love it.

I think the car would look even better if the pictures were taken on a cloudy day,
or at night... The shadows amplify the lines of what are normally small gaps (like
in the first picture where the hood meets the bumper).

So is it finished? What more can you do to it?

@Blink, I can't wait for that 3.4L. I'm hoping to have it all done by July/August. Your right I need to replace my driver side floormat. Stupid things wears out way too quickly. I think it was replaced less than a year ago.

@dcporsche, I really need to get it washed. I just wanted to get some pictures up to show you guys.

@Jeph, Not really sure what more I can do, but I'll never say its done. The next big thing is the motor swap. After that its all just minor stuff.

@Grizz, It been cloudy here..................................ONCE before.

I like the Euro bumper alot.

When I had my bumper changed out, by the time the message to leave the bumperettes got to the shop the bumper already had the holes in it. Leaving off the bumperettes creates such a clean look.

You have a beautiful car.
Where did you find that shift knob?

i agree, very well done.
the only thing that i 'dont like' is the humps, i think that if theres a way to integrate, or mold them in...or something, so that they dont look just put on there...but everything else looks great man.

Gary, I got the shift knob from a fellow forum member that sold his car before he was able to install the shift knob. Here is a link for it from Sun Coast Porsche..... http://e-partssales.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=P&Product_Code =98642498100or05XXX&Category_Code=POTEBXCC

Thanks for all the kind words everyone!

Notachance, I do hope that comment was tongue-in-cheek.

TriGem2k, you keep up the great work enhancing your car. Amazing I say, Amazing!

Very Nice! Did you change your system back to stock? You signature shows some nice equipment, but the pictures looks like the stock system. Do you have some pictures of your system?

Randall, Notachance is my 17 year old cousin from NY/NJ. He pops in now and again to check out the cars on the forum. He just likes talking smack but asks me to send my car to him when I'm done with it.

Boxs2000, your absolutely correct, I did remove my entire system and return the car back to stock. I still have the Navi system at home in the garage. I removed the Reus system due to the fact that I blew the subwoofer within the first 2months of ownership. I just couldn't believe a system that retails close to 7k would just give out that easily. Rues was generous enough to refund me and put the car back to stock. In the end its not worth it to have a system I paid 4900 for in a cabrio.

Nice and clean. I like the whole look... minus the humps, which I call the worst thing you can do to such a smooth lined car. They just look so "fake" and with all the gaps below, above, in the middle, then on the trunk, to an onlooker who doesn't know it is an add on, it makes the car look poorly engineered.

I really like the rotors, I am about to replace mine and you made up my mind to go drilled.

Congrat's bud, it is an artform.

Definitely one of the sickest Boxsters I've seen. Only thing I'm not a fan of is the de-badged rear. For some reason the Boxster front and rear never looks right to me without the badge but that's just my preference.

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.
