Courtesy light projecting logo

Has anyone installed these in a Boxster? I've seen them for 911, Panamera, etc.

It's been done. Do a search and you'll find it

You have to drill holes into the bottom of the door, though. You couldn't pay me to break through the paint and put a hole in mine.

Looking at the projectors they are part of the lens unit, why would you need to drill a hole in the bottom of the door? Are the lens different size?

Comes as an option on some bimmers and mustangs. Personally I find it a little tacky though. Nice door sill guards is enough grandeur for me.

I did not actually look at the link. I've never seen these type. No drilling required
Tacky as heck, though.

Yes!

There are some easier to install, no drilling required.
My father has them on his 928... I laugh at him every time!
