A classic Nor’Easter is bearing down and is expected to drop 8”-12”. However, all I can think about are the after hours drives I take with my wife after long days at work, just to mellow things out a bit.

Many thanks for sharing your pics.

That is the bumper and side skirts from the Areo KitII....Its a GT3 front bumper.

I bought the Skirts off ebay and the bumper from DPS Porsche Parts.

$950 bumper + $395 paint + $85 lip(coming monday) + $750 skirts + $300 paint.

Looks great, that is a bold statement but I think I agree. Please update when you get the lip installed.

Nothing body wise yet................

If so to be honest I would totally do the GT3 front bumper as you did, it looks sick and really easy to do.

On the Performance end:

de-snorkel--sounds nice

Magnaflow exhaust--sounds awesome, feel a little more top end..nothing to go nuts over.

Voightland Adjustable Coil-Overs 30mm-50mm (currently at 30mm lower than Stock)--Sick crazy handling. After the install the car was aligned and corner-balanced. I thought it handled good stock.....it sticks to turns like no other now.

Here are some more pics:

Right now the car is dropped 1.5inches in the front and 1.25inches in the rear. I JUST put 5mm spacers on the rear about a month ago mainly because the inside strut and tire were too close. It didnt really need it i just needed to be sure it never rubs. Nothing in the front though.

I'm in San Clemente, there's a PCA AutoCross coming up Saturday Feb 25 at the National Orange Show Fairgrounds in San Bernardino. You should cruise down.

It's being help by the Orange County and Riverside PCA groups.

So I guess DPS did a good job? I have to order the lip spoiler(aka air spiltter) from them. You'll have to shorten the spoiler by clipping the sides to get it to fit the GT3 MK1 Bumper. The GT3 Mk2 Bumper is wider so the superCup lip spoiler wrapps around the larger bumper. Someone posted the DIY pics on Renntech.org
http://www.renntech.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=4095&hl=






I didn't realize it but I also got my bumper from DPS via Ebay. I'm trying to find the grill meshing to do the RS intakes part # 996.505.325.91 . I also have to find a nose bra for track and autoX.


This picture looks like the Gran Turismo shot of the RUF Boxster with GT3 bumper.

The pictures are truly great. Naturally a good subject for pictures always helps. Your car is immaculate and the locations you chose for the pictures are fantastic. What type of camera do you use? Your car reflects the care you give it. Wish I could be there right now instead of NY digging out from this weekend's record blizzard.

The pictures where actually taken by a friend of mine who works for a film productions company. Those are taken with a Canon 16.6mp SLR camera. My friend is now working on them to properly adjust the colors.

I will repost pictures when everything is PERFECT.
