New owner!

Hey everyone, glad to be part of the club! Just picked up my 99 Boxster last night and I'm absolutely in love with it. Having only owned SUVs, (selling my X5 for it) it's been a blast getting used to this little thing.



(Pictures suck but I'm sure you all have seen plenty)

I'd like to keep the mods to a minimum, but I would like to start off by switching to depo tail lights. Which would you guys suggest looks best with a black boxster? Clear or smoked grey?

Smoked. PM Crono0001 for some daytime pictures. I just sold him my smoked DEPO tail lights and the advance daytime pictures I've seen from him look sweet.

Dude, that's really going to be up to you.

However, there are a bunch of folks here that have both. Just as AndrewG has said, just ask for pics and you shall receive.

Yeah, I'm still pissed at you for that AndrewG. Or, pissed at Crono0001. Not sure yet. I didn't see your post until AFTER they were sold.

Don - Welcome. Your ride looks very nice! I have the smoked Depos on the left on my red Boxster and they look great.

Thanks everyone for the warm welcome! This forum is great. I've been checking out pictures on here and I'm still undecided about the lights, they both look so good. Hopefully I'll make up my mind soon and come back with pics. Until then, I'll be enjoying everything this car has to offer including the stares and comments from my neighbors.

Welcome. Very nice looking car. I like the look of the contrasting grills in the front bumper. Mine are the same color as the rest of the bumper.

Thanks again guys! I don't know Crono after seeing that picture of yours, you definitely sealed the deal on smoked. It really does look amazing!
