Bought the car in Summer of 2007 for my first car. It had just peaked 100k and was completely stock when I bought it:










Then I went to making a mesh grill and installing foglights:





I didn't have much money, so went the route of painting the wheels rather then buying new ones:











Wasn't too happy with how the red came out, so ended up painting them all anthracite.




Next was IPD's sidemarkers and clear corners:








About this time I ran off the road while doing some regrettable drifting in the rain. Busted the belly pan, curb rashed a wheel, and left the bumper hanging. Spent the weekend fixing all these things and then I got a good deal on a 940 wing and free decor panel, so painted both of those flat black to match my fading bumpers and slapped them on:







Got two new cars, an 1800E and ES parts car so the 940 was put on hold for a while:





Next I got a VDO boost gauge and made my own pod on the steering wheel cover:








My car was hit by some girl at my school in her '09 VW Bug Convertible and they sped away. It scraped the rear bumper up and moved my car up a foot, while it was in park! So I fixed the scratch and painted the bumpers with Krylon Fusion:

Before


After




Located some Mille Miglia II's for cheap ($200) and put them on with some expensive Michelin's to replace my old Adhara's:








Got some 960 tails:

Reminds me of my car just burgundy instead of green. Mine may be getting a face lift pretty soon though I may be swapping the bumpers and painting it.



edit: Bumper swapped and skirts put on. I think I'll eventually paint it laser blue...

Yeah it's definitely noticeable but not as nice as a 940 I drove with iPd sways and lowered. Lowering will make a huge difference. Is yours lowered?

Yeah, I'm kind of hesitant about an MBC right now though

Cool, what shocks are you running? I don't know it's running 6 psi right now and would only turn it up to 8-9. How much of a difference would that make? Everything else is stock.

Yea, get an MBC and run 10-12 psi. One of the best things you will ever do to the car, trust me!

LOL meh id never pay that much for a mbc.What i run on all my cars for boost control is just running a brass T fitting and running a hose on the center connector then making sure its equal length to the rest of it i just clamp on a hose clamp on the end of the line and it'll get you boost from 9psi all the way to 35psi.And no spikes either and all can be done for under $5 .

You can get prettier ones than that for $20. There are a million and one websites that sell MBC's, just shop around.

How important is it to have a large exhaust when raising the boost? Note the engine and drivetrain is completely stock
