Any "clean" modded Boxsters?

I know this might make me a few enemies. But is there anyone (or anyone who has pictures) of a nice clean subtle modded boxster?

That means no chrome wheels, no 20" wheels, no gawdy body kits, no ridiculous eBay wings, no crazy amounts of vinyl, no full length racing stripes.

Seems half the "modded" porsches (911's, caymans, and boxsters alike) just make me want to

Surely I can't be the only one who thinks the same?

Post up some nicely modded cars!

I agree with you for the most part. But I do like some racing stripes :-) I am glad the 986 I bought was not modded at all. One of the biggest turnoffs when looking to buy a car is to see that the original wheels are gone. If you mod, keep the original parts!

Nicely executed Cosmo!

I too am a fan of the simple yet stunning mods to a car.

Cosmo: Mind posting your mod list, specifically the suspension and the wheels/tires? Do you have any body mods besides the rear tail lights and sidemarkers? Thanks!

Doc, I thought you used Leatherseats.com two tone with a crest logo. Did you change the seats a second time? Looks nice.

Doesn't get any cleaner that this. 2011 Boxster Spyder. Only mod so far are clear side markers. Don't know if I can bring myself to do anything else.

I did. That pic was taken before the new seats were installed. Here are the new ones installed.
