very tastefully done. Bill will like this :)

very NICE, saw it over on german ebay site.
Gemballa exhaust with gemballa rear valence, sideskirts and front bumper, spoiler(not a fan of that, but thats personal preference), lowered, BBS LM wheels, xenons, all clear lights, carbon fiber interior with GPS, seats, and because its in europe, no ugle bumperettes and look at the color
i love it, perfect combo.
what else would make this a 'perfect boxster"? engine?

Dude DJ remove those pics! That ride looks NICE! It's my new Boxs color so it's got me thinking......hmmmm.

The only part of it that I don't like the is rear bumper,OEM style w/ rear diffusers would look better.

Can anyone tell me for sure what kind of front and rear bumper covers he has on that car? I WANT THOSE FOR MY CAR. Love the lack of bumperettes too!

BTW, he needs wider tires. They don't protect those rims at all.

Randall, I'd still rather have painted bumperettes, vs. that gigantic cutout for the European license plate.

Blinkwatt, your car is this color? I thought it was more on the red side. This car is orange.

I like everything but the rear spoiler and the CF interior. The wheels wouldn't be my choice either but they're not bad.

It depends on the lighting. It's really neat/weird/cool, in the dark it's really red only,in certain lighting(see my pics where I detailed my Box in a previous thread) it orange/red.

Thats 90% my car.... Factory Aero Kit II but I opted out of the rear wing. Not a big fan of that particular rear bumper either. I opted for the OEM 03/04 euro bumper

That car has my exact Gemballa exhaust too...

I like that rear bumper. I always thought our stock bumpers don't extend down far enough.

I prefer the Champion Wheels, more 'lip' in the rear. I would buy them if I could afford them. They look sweet with the centers black too.

I see the images now. Car looks cool, but I don't see anything to special other than the seats and the rear bumper. The rest is just a lowered box with nice rims. Still, nice car.

Randall,

I thought I had made a thread for it but can't seem to find it. I will take some new pictures and post them up.
