Love the clean look. Needs better photos dude!

Really like those fog shrouds, only if they had something which would retain the fog lights.

Yeah, my cell phone camera is no good. This whole weekend was overcast as well. In terms of the fog lights I need to reach out to deauto.

Found a set of boxster non s calipers at a great price. The mod bug is strong! I wonder how I will ever save for wheels if I don't stop ordering =p

I like multi spoke wheels a lot though the thought of cleaning them annoys me. So probably a silver set of enkei rs05rr for inexpensive or 3sdm 0.01 three piece wheels if I want to go a little more crazy though I am unsure of what color combo to do with the 3sdm wheels.

Haha, I agree! I have Neuspeed RSe12s myself. Love how they look, but the Detroits were so much easier to clean!

Found a great buy on ebay for some rebuilt Porsche Boxster non-s front brake calipers.

Have been hearing a clunk noise when making tight turns into my garage. I am questioning if it is me needing adjustable endlinks or the Tyrolsport sub frame kit. I have had my coil overs for nearly 3 years with no issue. So I am concerned on which it could be and thinking if I am going to be tearing into the front sub rame I might as well do a sway bar upgrade.

Decided to go for it...tyrol subframe kit ordered. Neuspeed front sway bar along with a set of 034 Motorsports front adjustable end links ordered.

The car is getting the front lower valance painted at West Coast Specialties. Then this work will be done.
