Thanks for the inspiration. Agate Grey with ducktail, relocated emblem and GT4/Spyder diffuser. Parts from Suncoast.

Wow, that is one beautiful Boxster. You didn't need my help (but you're welcome). Love the 2-tone graphics on the doors!

Great looking Agate S! Nice job on the rear end giving it the "gearFX treatment."

The spoiler looks nice and OEM, but the review is amazing.

Thank you! In hindsight, I probably overdid it (the review detail), but I'm guilty of doing that often.

Nice...found this and might consider it for my "new' 981 Boxster S. They're still selling the spoiler, painted for $625.

OP - can I ask how your spoiler has held up? How is the paint work after some time?

Have the ruined aerodynamics caused you any stability concerns at speed?

Thanks.

Wow, I can't believe that it's already been almost 2 years since I did this mod. Paint has held up great, no age-related fatigue or premature wear, etc.

I can't say that I notice any stability-related issues from the seat of my pants. Maybe I'm just not going fast enough for it to make a difference.

Thanks, appreciate the input.

Any stability concerns are silly IMO. A Boxster is a street car. Even the occasional track driven Boxster is not going to hit speeds where that aero change would be noticeable IMO.

I got the Spoiler Nation ducktail last year and it went on fine, but the paint (black) wasn't a perfect match. It had a lot of orange peel and my body shop was able to use grinding compound and the color is now a much better match, but still not 100 percent, perhaps 95% match. My body shop filled and painted my factory GT4 side air scoops without seeing the car and they came out a perfect match.
