Speedster Hump Questions

Good morning all,
Fairly new around here. I've had my 98 Boxster since March and have already put 19k miles on it. Loving it to say the least. It came with a set of speedster humps and brackets. They have OEM part numbers on them. Was there an oem option for the humps? Having trouble finding any info.
My assumption is they are the duraflex ones, but don't know how to tell for sure. They were red and the po started to rattle can them silver. Guessing the color didnt match and he stopped half way through. Haha. So they need a bit of paint work. Fitment isn't too bad, I just don't like the looks.

Anyway, what are these things worth? Is there a way to tell if they are 'OEM'?

Thanks,
GLImages

Welcome. Saw zero photos/pictures/ What do you mean by "Fitment isn't too bad"? If they have OEM numbers on them... should be OEM. Rattle can? Trash that... take it to the shop... have them painted. What are they worth? I bought mine from a fellow upon these pages for, IIRC, $400 and change. They're worth whatever someone will pay for them... and the camps are divided upon the "coolness" factor.

You don't like the looks? For how much would you sell them... shipping not included? (I'd do the postage math, just looking for your sale price).

Pics, please.

The crappy paint may be why I don't really care for them that much. And I don't like the seam around the rear when mounted. Looks too much like they are sitting "on top" of the truck lid. I think they would look great molded in, although I don't have any plans for that. But that's what I meant by not bad fitment. Everything lines up where it's supposed to be. I'm just being picky.

Let me think about a price. I may be open to bartering too. I have a few things I'm looking for. I'll shoot you guys a PM and/or make a post in the classifieds. I didn't mean for this to be a for sale ad. HAHA.

Here's a few pics of the humps. I don't have any pics with them mounted. I might be able to snap a few once it warms up later this afternoon. Included one of my car for good measure.

That makes three of us who might be interested for the right price. The line is to the right.

My 03S came with the OEM humps and whenever I use them, which isn't that often, everyone has positive comments. It gives the car a solid muscular look. I use them if there is absolutely no chance of rain since to store them in the car is awkward if you have to raise the top. It can be done but almost impossible if you have anything in the frunk or trunk. I'm the only Boxster owner in the local PCA chapter that has them I believe.

You guys are convincing me to hold onto them I think. Haha. I'm going see about getting them painted and decide from there. I've been looking at pictures of other cars with them today, they may be growing on me some.

Sorry to be such a tease for those who were interested. I didnt realize they were so popular/rare.

How hard is artic silver to match?


Thx,
GLImages

They're light enough to carry into your local auto paint shop... get an estimate. They should be able to match up the paint. I can't imagine they would be terribly expensive.

FWIW, I would have offered you $200 plus shipping... because you know... the crappy existing paint job. And because I paid $400 for mine, with the paint tits.

JBauer just stated a Ztop thread. Maybe we should get a Hump thread going.

By the way... if you decide the humps aren't for you (I'd be surprised, they are uber cool) connect with Daniel Andrew. That ****************er will get you $2,000 for the humps. Plus shipping.

Lol. Is that the guy with the ebay links in his ads? I saw the 3 spoke steering wheel he has listed for $850. Thought that was a little optimistic to say the least.

For $200, I'd definitely keep them. Haha. I had a few PMs with higher offers than that.

The paint is pretty crappy, but nothing a little sanding can't fix. We'll see what the paint shop says this weekend.


Thx,

To hump or not to hump, that is the question! We are currently humpless because the top is stuck (up), and it's winter. I like the look and what are the chances another black 986 showed up on my street a few weeks later. Keeps me from trying to get in the wrong car....

Anyone have a guesstimate on cost for a good paint job on a set of Humpty humps? (damn, now that song is stuck in my head...)

400 bucks . I paid 400 for rear bumper . I just paid 500 for bumperettes, bumper and rear diffuser. I paid 500 for humps years ago off C.L. 2 wks after purchase of boxster and love them. If Porsche liked the look then I like it too.

Price

FWIW, I had a set of OEM humps in pristine condition and advertised them for $400, with not a single serious inquiry. A couple of people responded and said I was asking way too much and they're not very popular. I ended up keeping them and selling with the car when I sold it.

Found this online, let's me keep the humps on longer in case it rains.
