Sweet, Sweet, Sweet!

The M3 is looking tough in the background. Any mods to it or is it stock?

Here are some photos taken from the shop that installed the rim for me. (The orange on the car is a watermark on the photo)

Mark - That's a nice sedan you have there! 400+ HP has to be a blast in that platform. My experience with BMW's (I had an E46) is their HP output feels like it is rated lower than it actually is.

The 986 really looks good. Great job! The wheel guys did a nice job dialing in the correct offset. Have you driven it enough to make any observations? Does it feel more sluggish with the larger diameter wheels/tires? Have you experienced the more stiff ride? Those changes are worth it IMO unless you are going racing.

Nice and Clean. Everything on your car is done very tastefully. BTW, The spoiler I got from you looks great. Thanks.

This car looks fabulous! What type/brand is that rear spoiler? I am looking for such a spoiler to mount on my Boxster.

Thanks! The rear spoiler is part of the Factory Aero Kit II. As far as I know they don't sell it separately but I do believe that others have purchased an aftermarket version.

Cheers

The M is a lot of fun to drive. So far I've only added the BMW factory performance exhaust which makes it sound super mean .

The new wheels on the 986 do feel a lot better. Keep in mind that my old 17" tires were dated (manufacture date of 2004) so they were really hard and worn. So the new set up feels like riding on cushions. The feel is firm yet not bouncy or stiff. It's actually comparable to the M (which is also on 19"). I guess it's all what you are use to. If you drive around a cushy ride all day long you'd probably think that my M and 986 were too firm. oh and thecar is not tracked.

Cheers

Mark

Thanks!

Don't forget to post some photos of your car with the spoiler. I bet it looks awesome against the silver paint!

first time I saw these I thought "man that fit looks nearly custom".

Then I read your link....

p.s.

get some stripes on that thing already. Your jaw will drop once you see it in person.
Such a transformation.
