Very nice upgrade. I never really liked the 17" stock Boxster wheels.

They make your boxster look two or three years younger instantly!

Are they factory or aftermarket?

the classic Porsche wheel, I think maybe the nicest wheel from a factory design.
The BMW shadow wheels are a close second but lose out on ease of cleaning.

p.s.
what is the significance of your signature?

Those look awesome. I'm looking to do the same thing. Anyone know a good place to buy them in the US? Is there a specific name for this style of wheel?

Agree with Randall, car looks newer/updated. I wish we had the bumperette-less bumpers over here.

now all you gotta do is move your steering wheel to the right side.

for some reason, i dont like those wheels at ALL, but they do look better than the ones you had before, nice upgrade
