Welcome to the forum! That's a mighty fine looking car the way it sits. I just bought aftermarket rims to make mine look like your brother in law's car.

Most everything you listed has been posted about here a bunch of times. Use that search engine to dig into the posts and you'll get a gold mine of information.

Do remember that whatever parts you take off the car are probably worth a lot on eBay in Australia.

So where do you live in Australia anyway? I've had the pleasure of visiting Sydney, Cairns, Brisbane and Tasmania. You have a very large and beautiful country there, friend. Next time I go I want to get to the left side and check that out too!

Hi welcome to the Forum. Thats a mighty fine looking automobile you got there, I wouldnt recommend anything cause that boxster is already got probably $10K worth of stuff that I havent bought yet.

Interesting thing though.... Australia in the background looks alot like Pasadena California!

Hey SBOXSTER,

Nice Box

Where abouts in Melb are you?

We (MX-5 Crew) usually do Thursday nights coffee at Campari (Port Melb.) just by Station Pier. You may want to cruise by, (especially with the warm weather )

Hope to see ya down there some time.

Cheers

My Box
