Was quite intrigued and like the car until I saw the car move snoop style.

I understand where you are comming from and can assure you that the air suspension is on the car for 100% practical reasons and 0% gangsta-rapper.

There is no way to get a Boxster in and out of our drive without scraping it and this one couldn't even get over speed bumps without scraping the front so it gets raised to get me out of the drive way then gets reverted to it's pre-defined height for normal driving.

The only other options were to buy a 4x4 or adjust the ride height so that the Boxster could get in and out without scraping, but it looks terrible up high.

Changing the problem area on the driveway would require the council to make changes to the footpath, curb and angle to the road surface so there is zero chance of that happening. :-(

I really like that air suspension, great mod. Where in the world did you get the white gauges in km/h instead of mph?

All those mods must have taken a long time and tons of $$$. Nice work!!

With respect to the guages... It's a 2001 "S" so it came with white guages.
