Adding wood trim to my Boxster


Recommended Posts

Loren,

If this posting should be somewhere else please move it. I just wanted folks to see the latest upgrade to my Boxster.

I have always liked wood trim in a car. Unfortunately, mine only came with a dark burl gear shift and emergency brake from the factory. I looked at the tequipment accessories from Porsche, but the prices were unbelievable. I found Classic Trim WTP in an earlier post and emailed them to see what they could do. They told me about their water transfer process and assured me it would match my existing wood trim. I was worried at first, and decided to find some parts on ebay to have processed into "wood" trim. I started with the center vent and the two side vents. The results were in my opinion spectacular. Here are a couple pictures of the parts installed in my car.

They can do all sorts of patterns including carbon fiber. The dark burl is the only one I have seen in person and believe me it is impossible to tell from my original Porsche parts. I plan on doing my center console, door handle trim and door speaker grills next.

What was the cost Jon ? How long did they have your stuff for ?

The center vent assembly was $99. I can't remember what the vents were off the top of my head. I'm sure if you email them they will give you a quote for whatever you want done. They are very responsive to email. I think the normal turn around is about three weeks.
