Smile My Ride

Hi,

Just thought I would introduce myself. I have an 02 S in Basalt black. I have not been able to leave it alone and so far have done the following:

Bilstein Shocks and Eibach Springs <25mm
GT3 Leather Seats & Red Seat belts
VDO Navigation
Custom made sports exhaust & headers
Carrera Lightweight Wheels
EVO Intake kit
6500k Xenons
Dunlop Direzza D02G Semi Slicks
FVD spacer kit - 15mm F 18mm R
Clear Lens Kit

I look forward to learning more about my car from all of you!

I think I saw the GT3 seat belts on Ebay recently.

i have the lip spoiler on my gt3 front and that thing takes a beating. It lowers the front to about 4 inches off the ground. Looks good but you always on guard every time theres a bump on the road.

I think my car is a bit low for the GT3 front end, I would like it though, however I would have to import it from the USA. Here are some more piccy's

Still waiting of the STROSEK rear lip spoiler and intake vents.

Mate,

I don't want to upset you, but I am concerned about your car...somebody put the steering wheel on the wrong side. It may be fixable...

Feyfo, get the lip spoiler. theres's the large one (Supercup) and the smaller one that comes stock. Its cheaper to replace then repainting the whole front bumper.
The Supercup is cheaper if you can believe it.

Rennsport, I saw a guy with the GT3 seats in black who had the seatbelt openings painted silver (to match his silver center console). A pretty neat idea.
what are you using the on the leather? 1z works well on my set.

my condonlences on shipping charges, I had a guy in Oz beg me to ship him my clear headlights before I upgraded to Litronics. Too risky to ship that far..

Very nice looking Boxster!!

Is the pic reversed cause the stearing wheel is on the wrong side of the car?

Or as the British would say, on the correct side of the car

Very nice looking indeed!

Thanks for all the complements Guys, Unfortunately the wheel is permanently placed on the right hand side of the car so we can pay 40% luxury car tax here in Oz. We pay crazy money for these cars here because of government protectrion of the local car industry.

I looked at painting the seat inserts silver, however my painter said that the paint will wear off in time where it makes contact with the belts. I dont really want to not run the belts through the belt hole in the seats, therefore they will have to stay black.

There is no problem with postage to OZ, for small articles, a bumperbar however will cost a fortune because of it's size.

I bought the glass rear window conversion from the US and it cost $70.00 to ship for a whole roof is pretty good. My strosek spoiler from Fred Opert Racing cost $40.00 via TNT. The only handicap is the big items because of volumetric size.

I had the car dynoed today and it put down 170kw at the rear wheels which is over 20kw gain over standard on the same dyno. Im still of two minds whether to get the software modified or not.

Would you mind posting the size and offset of the rims please? curious about your spacer configuration. car's stance looks great and those are pretty sweet tires you have on.

I wouldn't hold my breath on a response to this one. Rennsport has had no posts on the forum since over 2 years ago (the one just before yours), for a grand total of 3.

I'm guessin' he doesn't show up here at all these days...
