just checkin in from manila - rs 60 inspired 986

been a while since I've been on here... so much going on with 986 aftermarket stuff... finally they've come out with LED headlights ...and bumpers with leds and rears with diffusers...

hard to believe i completed my little project in nov. 2010 =)

posting some recent pix but haven't done anything at all with the car.. ..I still really love it though...and it still turns heads for an 11 year old .....






scruffy under the front...





with the aircooled bro







got another droptop in matte black ...first bimmer pretty fun to drive too...but nothing beats porsche





the blackmobile


new shoes

This has to be one of the most original, awesome looking boxsters around.
I was gonna ask where you got that front bumper, but that question has been answered. It looks amazing.

I designed the front and rear bumpers myself guys in november two years ago...

thanks for the kind words =)

I really still love the box

since I'll be getting married next year...I'm thinking I may need to sell it and get a sedan... I've got 4 2 doors and one cayenne... I may need to rethink that philosophy or else the future wifey will be pissed haha

Beautifully done. I wouldn't change anything but maybe to lose the front LEDs for a cleaner look. And u have true talent to have designed the bumpers yourself!

Btw, sometimes adding the right wifey may end up with u netting even more cars...wifey just added a mini clubman to the stable.

thanks 986 for the compliments.. I quite like the LED's ...i feel they're integrated nicely into the bumper....

was thinking of foiling the headlights white with a white round cutout for the headlight...

like how this guy did it in taiwan? Post your best Boxster Pic

just wondering about the turn signals and if they'd still shine through the foil

...I assume he used tint....

as for the wifey... she loves cars...but it'll be hard to have only one 4 door and a buncha sports cars when we start a fam ...maybe panamera next?

Now you're talking!

Also, use the 2+2 argument, they (wives) tend to fall for that one also

update: just picked up a 997 turbo .... so that makes 4 porsches in the garage. which the wifey is completely unhappy about... so I have made the painful decision to let go of the boxster s....

hopefully I can find someone who will love it and care for it as much as I did. anyone one here who lives in the philippines who is interested please send me a message

farewell 986 you are still a fantastic car and by far one of the best roadsters ever made.
