Does this kit look stupid?


The rest of the kit can be seen on the link below.

Not my thing -- I don't like the placement of the red lights (are those the CELs, etc? -- if so, can you see them if they go off or will the steering wheel block them?), but it is your car.

Not bad. I personally wouldn't buy it but if you like it that's all that matters.

Love everyone's honesty!

Haha!!! I've been looking at too many things I've lost all common sense of good taste. Thanks for putting me back on track!

Not a fan. I'd imagine that it would be blinding in the sun.

+1. I think most of the time stock Boxsters look best. 986spyder's Box is an exception, as is the guy on here with the silver box and the red leather race seats (very nice).

Save up some money and forego the small cosmetic upgrades (except for de-ambering) and buy performance upgrades.

Tan and chrome, not my thing. It might look better on black.

Not my cup of tea. Also, I would imagine those metal pieces would really heat up with the top down and may burn you if you touch them. If not then once heated up it should cause pretty bad ware on the glue and it should come loose easily. Or at least that is what I think would end up happening.

Although...

I dont like the dash or the centersole stuff, but I do like the speaker piece...

Not too much and it would go with the rest of the silver kit if you had it... But I only like the silver piece that goes on the door speaker.
