The car looks good and all, I just like white better. But as long as your happy that's all that matters.

Well the wheels are ughhh...interesting. But the paint job really looks like it turned out great. I enjoy seeing rare-color S's (especially when its not pink or lime green). And like others have said, if you like it, that's all that matters. Enjoy it.

Sweet color!!! Seriously, what vehicle is that paint stolen from?

All that work and you didnt remove your windshield tape though?

2000 S, am I the only one that caught that?

Smoked tails?

Who makes the side skirts? Very clean.

So many questions lol sorry

Congrats!

2003 Porsche 911 Turbo.
The tape was removed, it was GPW, painted flat black like the lower rear bumper lip. S2000 Emblems are fixed.
Taillights are smoked. l want to install AP2 Lights.
GP Sports side and rear bumper skirts (Discontinued)
Thanks

I like the '06-07 AP2v2 wheels better by themselves, but I'm not sure that the '08-09 AP2v3 wouldn't look better with your build. I can almost picture those big wild spokes now. I think that grey CR AP2v3's would look really good, but hey I'm partial to grey wheels!

Diggin the smoked tails. What route did you go? (Tint, spray, aftermarket difussers?)

No, those are from my CR-Z, temporarily on the car during the new paint job.

Oke: chazdawg35 (Charlie) and human688 (Alan) here on the forum both have CR-Zs so you may want to PM them. Chaz used to have an S2000, and as far as the CR-Z I think he has kept that mostly stock. Alan swapped out tires, but I don't know about any other mods. I don't think he has changed out much though.

Hope that helps.

Wow...that looks fantastic.

How'd they do overspray wise? From my experience that's where the pro's shine is in their prep, that takes a lot more time and patience and experience to get a good result.

Hmmm I missed this somehow,

Even though GPW is my favorite S2K color... that blue looks amazing. Great choice. I was expecting the worst as I was scrolling, but it really looks great.

I think the red interior went better with GPW but the paintjob itself does look good
