Wheels

I know there is a lot of back and forth on rim sizes but I have no complaints. Of course I wouldn't purposely drive over a pot hole either, nor should you regardless of your rim sizes.

Nicely done! Really like the DVD Nav system.

BTW, do you have a picture of the entire car with the rims?

Wings & Tail lights

Got the wings from Fiberwerks, I think it flows with the contours of the car pretty well. As for tail lights, I liked the smoked rear lights because of the contrast between the lights and my white car.

Simply stunning!
I like everthing except for the aftermarket spoiler or tail? I think add on spoilers and tail just make it look ricey... The legend 550 and RSK spyders did not have such a tail...
Also, why a camera in the back?

porscheracer01,

Thank you for the compliment! The back-up camera with infrared vision was installed during the installation of the AVIC-D3.

Nice job on those wheels. Good for you. You may now consider adding the '03 side vents with the raised ribs ala Grizzly. Adds a nice focal point on the side of the car and visually sets off those great wheels.

Hey Tri, where did you get that license plate cam? I've got the standard one that came with my AVIC but I haven't mounted it yet.

I'll hopefully get my BoxS back from the dealership tomorrow, and then I'll post pictures of the install kit.

Chills,

Here you go bud...

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=260233024945&fromMakeT rack=true&ssPageName=VIP:watchlink:middle:us

It's a little more $ but I think it's worth it (true wide angle camera).

Just south of you, Sarasota. The PCA is very active in our area. You may enjoy some of their events if you have not yet had the chance to attend one.
