Default Porsche Carpeted Floor Mats

First thing I took care of was removing a small dent on the LR quarter using paintless dent removal, next was replacing the WeatherTech mats that came with the car with new OEM carpeted mats. The interior just got a little cozier

Default 991 SPASM Front Lip

Today I installed the Porsche SPASM Front Lip for the 991 (P/N: 991505525011E0). Thanks to EMC2 for the idea and tutorial on this awesome OE+ mod.

Nice to hear you aren't driving that women's car anymore.
Your 911 looks great!
Once you lower it 1" will look even better!
Welcome to the club!

Beautiful photography. My car is the same color combo and I've yet to take the time to photograph it properly. I look forward to watching this thread grow.

Thanks! The Boxster was a great little car, it could use more power but I would definitely own another! I plan on lowering the 911 in the spring, mostly likely 1.5 - 2.0 inches on coilovers.

Thank you, I love the Platinum Silver Metallic. Lighter metallic paints are easier to photograph and show off the curves of the 911 very well.

Great looking 911 and excellent photos.
The 991 Spoiler install really suits the car

Thank you

The Z4M was my cousins car (@dubsesd), he has moved onto an Atlantis Blue M3 (F80), probably the most popular M3 on the internet lol.

Default LED License Plate Lights

Some more small parts arrived today! These were a super quick install, some LED Canbus license plate lights. Sorry for iPhone photos

Never thought about using stage lighting for my license plate.
Have you considered H&R springs for lowering 1"? 1" seems to be a great choice - Not too low and looks great. Can still use PASM too.

Great pics there. I changed all the interior lights to canbus led after seeing the difference it made to the rear plate. Made the interior feel a lot more modern. Some folks think it makes the interior look cold, but I prefer the more modern look. Keep the updates coming !

Stage lighting? Are you the forum comedian? LMAO. I had H&R's on 3 different cars now including the Boxster, I like the fact that it was a cheap way to lower your car and they don't ride too bad, but I am ready for something better and I would like to be able to dial in a perfect height (which the H&R's definitely do not accomplish).

Thank you Bob! I may do the same with the interior, bright white LED's modernize the car significantly.
