Holland looks like Lake Tahoe!
Those black Depo Headlights are really starting to grow on me...

Great looking ride! Boxster Red interior?

The black wheels - they look okay because the car is black, but in general I don't get why they are so popular. But that's just me.

The headlights look fantastic. Unfortunately they probably wouldn't look that good on my seal gray car...

The box stand on it's wheels with an KW adjustable coilover set, Speedline three piece rims, H&R spacer on the rear and front. H&R stabilizers.

The engine is partially rebuild and with stainless steel manifolds. Also an bypass exhaust is fitted. The box sounds great now!

Exterior I have fitted LED taillights and black chrome projector headlights with HID. Looks ten years younger and the vision is also much improved! Also LED flashers and license plate lighting. The rear spoiler, mirrors and sidefenders are carbonfiber.

I also have a new convertible top assembly, radiators and suspension parts.
Drives very good now!

That's an awesome reflection, looks like glass/mirror!

Cosmo, what kind of finish/wax are you using?

WoW! PRETTY!

…and the car is nice too! Love Holland! People are nice - just don't leave you car stereo for more than a minute! Lots of places to drive it like you stole it! Just watch out for those "red lights".

Guess you get good at driving in the wet (rain) too.

I use commandant nr 5 and 7. Recently I bought a car polish machine, that works very well!
