What a sexy freakin car. I personally wouldn't like that color, but damn, on a Boxster, it's just fockin sexy!

Makes me jealous... I was too freakin busy yesterday and the day before to wash/clean up my car. She's overdue for the Superclean (tm). If the weather is nice next Friday or Saturday, it's time to wash, clay bar, wash, scrub the top, clean the plastic window, wash again, and wax a couple times.

I also need to tend to my interior sometime (peeling finish on some parts...). A buddy knows of an upholstery shop that should be able to cover some of my bits in leather, and probably for a good price.

Actually, if you look at his CarDomain picture link, it looks like he has a girl friend. And a very beautiful one at that.

Nice wheels

Which model BBS wheels are those? And how did you paint them black? What type of paint must be used to get a nice look like that and will stay adhered to the metal finish on the wheel?

Looks like your HVAC Control unit 's LCD is leaking. Must be a common problem, I thought I was the only one.

yea, crazy what can $7 worth of paint, and $3 worth of pinstripe do to stock wheels.
now not only do they look better (no scratches, faded paint, peeling clearcoat...thx previous owner for not giving a ******************** bout the wheels, but he did take care of the paint at least), but the the overal appearance of the car is changed.
im happy <- finally
well at least for now....

so now what about that bumper, sideskirts, lowering, seats, steering wheel, lights, exhaust, turbo....lol
