haha, wow some of those prices are a rip off.

ultimate is sleeper kind, like bigger engine (and then twin turbo it), lowered on some coil overs, and some nice lightweight wheels. front/rear bumper and some sideskirts, GT3 seats, different steering wheel, things of that nature.

Lots of good stuff, but maybe figure out how to drop a couple of hundred pounds of curb weight for the "ultimate" boxster?

Forget all those cosmetic upgrades, and drop in a 3.6 for 10K, instead of spending it on a bunch of little things.
Just my $0.02!
