Chart your Progress Here!

Here's an idea for a picture post:
Post your (best) before and after pictures. A picture of your Boxster when you first acquired her, and how she looks today. How far have you come?

See if you can limit it to 1 before picture and 1 after picture.

If you need help resizing or cropping your images, feel free to send me a PM.

My before and after pictures would be exactly the same. I Bought my 2000 Boxster S in Southern California in March 2004 with 23,184 miles on it.
Looked brand new then and still looks brand new today with 38,273 miles.
It was a one owner non daily driver that spent the first 4 years of its life in a town called Solvang in Ventura County. It's where the movie "Sideways" took place.

lights, bumper, fenders, fender lining, ballasts, plugs, some fabrication of the stock bumper brackets and mounting, etc...

I can get you a full parts list but, expect to spend around $5K.

Or you can keep your stock lights and fenders and just buy the aftermarket bumpers that are made to fit like porsche986spyder has.
