My car all done

2001 S

refurb'ed wheels
new roof with glass window
de-ambered (by previous owner)
Pioneer 7" touch screen ICE
sports manifold (by previous owner)

everything else pretty standard (how I'd like to keep it!)

has a lot of paint chips on the front, but won't get it sprayed - will save the money for a car upgrade in a couple of years.

love Porsches

Noob question but all those star-point bolts on the wheel near the tire - do they have a purpose or are they cosmetic?

How about your office? Is it appropriately Porsched out?

the bolts hold my wheels together as they are split rims.
titanium bolts I think with thread lock

means that a wheel refurb' costs more,
but does mean you can have wheels painted in two colours.

middle part is 'anthracite'
centre a lighter colour and polished

Wheels look great with the car...very classy look. Love the overall color scheme; Seal Grey here in the States.
