Rant of aftermaker body kits for the boxster

i hate body kits that try to look like mini 996 turbo.
i hate aftermarket add on spoilers because it ruins my boxster sexy ass. how many spoilers do you need? 2 !?
i hate boxster humps! goodbye smooth curvy lines and hello gap.
19 inch chrome wheels on a boxster! it makes no sense.
add on rear speakers...listen to the engine is pure bliss



be proud of your ride and for christ sake don't pimp your ride!

be

in my opinion the boxster needed a bit of work to look like a real sports car.

must change the rear spoiler, the factory one is ugly n really dumb looking when up. the after market spoiler lip like the cayman helps the rear look more sporty.

must put 19 inch rims to make the car look like a hundred thousand dollar car. by just changing those ugly factory rims, i have had so many people think that the car is over $75,000. chrome is pimpin, simple nice 5 star rims are a must.

bumperettes do have to go, or painted.

lowering the car with one inch springs makes a hell of a difference of the over all look. has nothing to do with pimpin

side skirts are a must, the car looks too old fashion with out side skirts. nothing to do with pimpin.

front turbo bumper is sooooo nice, how can you say that it is a fake mini turbo. the vents are huge on the front and make the car look so mean. i personally would put the gt3 front bumper that is very simple and classy. very sporty.

i dont think its about not being proud.....personalizing the vechicle is not pimping the ride.

the boxster when done up right has the ability to look like a hundred thousand dollar car.

i know my car gets more head turns then most 911 drivers will ever get.

n simple lower the car, 19 inch 5 star rims, rear spoiler change, side skirts, and a new front bumper = super car status.

factory porsche boxsters before 2004 with no modifications = old fashion $50,000 car.

Now THIS is a worthless thread...
People can do whatever they want to their own cars... who cares.

You may not like it but since it's not your car you dont have to.
Are you 12?

Ruf is ok and you may upgrade with Ruf.

Porsche spent millions on R & D. So go ahead buy your ugly carbon fiber hood and mini Turbo tale. while your at it put a fish tank in the trunk and a couple of LCD on the headrest.



Don't be mock on the track!

You know Y2BOX, I'm not so sure that I like the humps myself. My wife thinks they're great. Here are some without. Better right?...everything else stays!
