pics of my blue boxster

Bought the car last august and like it alot!

When i bought the car it had some kind of lowering springs from hell, so changed back to orginal so i don't scrape the nose all the time.

Outside workshop before change.


Change done


Old and new

+1, yeah! What blue is that?

Kick ass Boxster you have, but to be honest, I like the lowered look better.

I think it was a good decision to raise it back to original. But I could never understand the black rims trend. Looks like the car is missing its wheels.

same here, the only thing for me i can see for it is that brake dust doesnt show, but then i prefer to keep it brake dust free,

Yeah, changing springs was the best thing i have ever done.

Can drive faster now when i know that the front dont scrape, or the rear tires won't hit the fenders on bumpy roads.


The previous owner sprayed/coated the rims. Found pictures of my car from the previous owner with silver rims, looks better duno why he changed them.

I've got to agree, I like the silver much better!
