Cost me about $1500cdn all in and it's fibreglass except for the lip. However, I would have put in yours I knew that I could have a urethene one for about the same price.

Awesome photoshoot!

Love the wheels. Where did you get them and how much did it run you?

I think the new Box front end looks pretty sweet. It has a little more Turbo look than the bolting on the actual Turbo front end.

I love the Turbo bumper on the boxster... it reminds me of a Ferrari 360 Spider. Looks great.

When people risk their lives, shouldn't it be for something very important?
Well, it better be.
But what is so important about driving faster than anyone else?
Lots of people go through life doing things badly. Racing's important to men who do it well.
When you're racing, it's life. Anything that happens before or after is just waiting.

No further cosmetic changes plan, but still want ECU flash, muffler and bypass pipes. Maybe wheels like TriGem2k

i must say that looks much better than i expected. perhaps, the C4S lip is what did the trick.

too bad the silver didn't match very well. it's the toughest damn color to match.

I didn't noticed there was a difference in colour until I took the picture. I still can't see the difference with my naked eye and I asked my friends whether there was a difference in colour and they can't tell either.

However, the picture from my digital camera is really obvious. I guess the camera shows the true colour that the naked eye can't see.

FYI, I posted a pic of my Guards Red '97 a while back and someone thought it was a rare color - digital cameras sometimes don't show the real deal. I thought the pic of the bumper was great. Nice machine and great upgrade! Eyes count more than an electronic picture! Post more shots of it.

It depends on the angle the picture is taken at. There is NO WAY paint will look the same on Plastic as it does on Metal. Even if u take a picture of a brand new car the bumper and body will look different from certain angles. Thatís just the way it is.
