    I avoided boxster or 911 rims because of the stagger

    Don't think you should use rims and boxer S in the same sentence ... Sounds very gay

    I reckon they will look good. I might pop round for a short back and sides as I need a haircut.

    Lol no I'm a brummie. When I worked in Scotland they all mimicked my accent as if I was from the black country. When I worked in West Bromwich they reckoned I talked with a posh accent lol.

    Aren't they 5x130 though? Or did he give you adapters? 9.5 will be no problem on the rear and a few people run that up front. There's acres of room at the rear, less so up front. I run 8.5 ET10 on the front with very occasional rubbing but I've got less than an inch between the tyre and wing. Depends how hard your suspension is, and how low you are.

    I bet Murphy enjoys feeling the wind in his hair when the top is down. Nice clean looking Porsche you have there. I love dogs and I love Porsches. I don't think I would mix the two together though.
