Clear side markers, Cargraphic headers and IPD plenum w/ GT3 Throttle body.

Purchased a SmartTop last year, but just have not installed it yet. Kinda pissed me off it doesn't allow the power mirrors to work...

Will no doubt be purchasing Softronic's reflash when available.

Cost to date -

Headers - 3000
IPD setup - 1300
Install - 1000ish

Do the math... Worth it? HELL YES!!!

Mine is a base model White/Beige with PDK. Picked it up 12-20-2013. To date have done nothing to it but drive and wash it. 3200 miles including my 1st ever HPDE track experience at the NOLA Motorsport 3 weeks ago. The color has grown on me and I really like. Only color I think I would prefer is the Amaranth Red. Recently learned about Porsche dropping that color from the public domain Configurator, but it still seems to be available for new builds with the dealerships Configurator. My dealer seems to think it will be available for the rest of MY 2014. I am strongly considering building a new S model in Amaranth/Beige, torn between staying with PDK (which is great) and going with a manual. New build would also have Sport Chrono (my base model does not) no matter the transmission. Any thoughts ?

1. Had the front (bra), doors and rocker panels covered with 3M film - cost was $1306 Canadian. The Porsche dealer wanted $2000 just for the bra. Did this to protect the car from stone chips, etc.
2. Replaced the floor mats with better quality mats - cost was about $100 Canadian. The new mats look nicer and will be easier to clean.

I'm currently waiting for my 2014 Boxster S in Amaranth/Luxor Beige to arrive mid-late April (finished production March 21). Since the configurator isn't showing Amaranth anymore, though, I had assumed anything ordered at this point would be a 2015 model, not available in that color.

Question 1: What modifications have you made to your 981 in the last 12 months?

My goodness lots.

DB Carbon Carbon Fibre. To many items to list but everything I could replace that was Plastic or Fake Aluminium.
Fabspeed Sports Headers and Cats.
TPC Blitzkrieg Kit.
OEM 991 Plenum
IPD 981 Competition Plenum
TechArt Paddle Shift PDK kit.
Zunsport grills. (Still in the box)
Many, many tunes, and dyno pulls.
The usual OEM stuff like covers and car care kits.

Question 2: What specific brands/parts have you purchased to make these modifications? (Example: XYZ Company Wheels or ABC Company ECU Tuning)

As above

Question 3: How much did you spend making these modifications? (Estimates are fine, for example "About $2000", etc.)

Somewhere between 30 and 50 K AUD. I don't add the invoices up.

Question 4: Can you briefly explain why you bought each item you listed? (Example: "Was on Sale", "I considered it the best in the market", etc.)

Eh, why not it is fun. Most items bought from P-9 Sponsors. Retail therapy. :)


Cheers

Now that the LEDs are available (again) I've just ordered a set.

Wonder if they'll run out just as quickly as before...

I prefer the 6MT, but it's obviously a matter of personal preference. However, on the 6MT the SC is a bit of a waste, worth it on PDK for improved functionality. On the 6MT, heel/toe rev matching is more fun anyway.

Maybe too late for the survey but figured would chime in anyway.

Warning Triange - Suncoast $55.00. Not all that comfortable on the road without a spare tire.
Clear Lexan Windscreen - Pedro's $119.00 - Nothing worng with some added visibility.
Aluminum front protector - Schnell $99.00 - My driveway is treacherous.
Front and rear cargo liners - OEM $309.00 - I tend to travel with some gear that gets dirty!
Das Schild - $189.00- This should have been included from Porsche. Aluminum dings easily.
Rear and side vent grills - Zunsport $280.00 - These just look cool.
Zunsport outer grill set - Planet 9 member $150.00 - Those strakes don't provide much radiator protection.
Nose, hood, fender, mirror, headlight and rear wheel film - X-Pel $1500.00 - The metallic paint looks great; I want it to stay that way. Headlights are also expensive.
Clear LED side markers - $95.00 Sonnen - The clears look infinately better with Agate Grey.
Slime Spair - $50.00 Amazon - Heard the Porsche sealant is crap and slime will not damage TPMS sensors.
7 AH battery - $15.00 Amazon - To store behind my seat and open the frunk in case of emergency.
Cabriolet cleaning kit - $145.00 OEM - No patience to order everything seperately and case provides easy storage so the stuff wont freeze in my garage.
Covercraft Weathershield HD+ cover - $280.00 - Auto Accessories. Covercraft installed a full flannel lining. To put my baby to bed in safety and comfort.
CTEK 3300 w/lighter adapter - $65.00 Amazon - To keep the battery in tip top condition.
Stainless Steel Porsche license plate holder - $30.00 Amazon - Just to add a little bling.

That about covers it....
