  1. Has anyone ever combined a performance spring like an H&R with the standard non M030 shocks on their Box? I'm trying to get a little more performance out of my suspension without throwing down 3k for a whole new set up. There's probably a spring rate not matching the shock issue. I'm up for sugestions '98 Boxter
  2. Yikes! Sounds like more work than I have time to fiddle with. Thanks.
  3. :help: Has anyone replaced the "airbag" trim strips that can give me some pointers? I scored some silver replacements off ebay.
  4. Thanks for the info. I am thinking more of replicating whole pieces such as interior parts than skinning existing parts. I've been finding some info here and there. It looks like I just need to take the time and read up on the subject.
  5. I was just wondering how hard it is to make your own carbon fiber bits? Does anyone here work with the stuff? Is it like fiberglass?
  6. I think I found some from FND that will do. I have Metropool blue interior so I think I'll go blue with silver trim & logo. :thumbup:
  7. The little velcro patches need to match up with 4 plastic 'hook' disks mounted into the rug. These disks are about 3" in diameter with a plastic screw underneath. Just screw them into the rug in an area underneath the velcro disks on your mats. With this setup you won't have any more problems. <{POST_SNAPBACK}> Oh, that makes sense. I guess those never were placed in the car. I'll have to order some from my dealer. Thanks.
  8. Thanks for the info. I have been checking out the Boxter racing board but I try not to be to pesky and ask a ton of questions all at once. I have a tendency to be an info vampire. KevinC: I was quoted $2500+ for the 030 package at my dealer. Yikes. I had bilstiens on my Miata and really liked them. What is an acceptable wheel weight for A 17" Porsche wheel? The 16" Rotas I was running on my Miata were a scant 14lbs. And that was a little heavy as far as Miata wheels go.
  9. I have the little velcro patches on the bottom but they don't stick to the carpet at all. The factory matts are just kind of...floppy looking if you ask me. I really hate floor matts anyway but I guess they are a necessary evil. I would like some crisp low profile looking matts that fit if they exist.
  10. I have a '98 2.5 that I am setting up for autocross. I'm planning on running in BS but may change classes if there is no competition. It does not have the factory sport suspension. I am thinking about having my dealer install the factory sport suspention bits but would go after market if I could save some money. Any suggestions? Also I am looking for some affordable light wieght wheels. I must stay ahead of the pesky S2000s.
  11. I really hate my stock floor matts. They creep all over the place. Can anyone offer up a suggestion for aftermarket matts?
  12. That looks great. I've always wondered what was up with Porsche and thier love for shaggy carpet. I would like to change my four spoke wheel to a proper three spoke as well. What do you have in mind for a replacement?
  13. They were WS-50s. Top down in the winter? :thumbup: You are a nut. The more I think about it the less I like the idea of skiming my car across the snow, cinders and gravel. I may just buy a snow beater and leave the Box in the garage.
