986 with Cayman S wheels

It was too nice today not to pull the Pcar out, put my new to me Cayman S wheels on, and take a few pics. I thought I would share with those of you who are waiting anxiously for warming weather.

What do you think of the 18" Cayman S wheels? I didn't need any spacers on the rear wheels but I used 15mm spacers on the fronts. It was a joy to ride in it this afternoon although it wasn't warm enough to put the top down.

I love them, the 18" Cayman S wheels are my favorite Porsche wheels!

What kind of front bumper is that and what kind of led running lights?

They fit the car very well.
I might like them better than the MY02 wheels!

This is the standard bumper for an 04 S. The LED DRLs I bought from Pedro's Garage.

My favorite is the carrera lite style but the Cayman wheels are right there at the top of the list!

Looks great, enjoy!

They look great, better than on the Cayman.

Are you using the tow hook as the front plate holder? Being from Ohio, we are required to display a front and rear plate. Can you share how you have attached the front please? Oh ya... the wheels look great.

Bootlegger- A little pricey but I liked the look of the offset license plate. Now that I have LED DRLs, it obscures the right one a bit but...
