Then drive it round the block to let the suspension settle.

Don't lower the car with the splitter on. I had 987.1 Boxster S with H&R lowering springs installed and with just the factory bar, I was scraping on almost everything - it was a PITB. With this splitter and lowering springs/coilovers installed - it will bound to scrape.

Not sure on lowering. I'd prob drop below the min ride height laws. May look at coilovers when the shocks give up, but keep a good height. 

And don't dis the legs, they don't get out in the daylight often.

Bibbs, can I ask where you got it from and $$$? Looks good mate

A guy called "Joe Toth", he's in Canada. He posted on the 987 Boxster FB group I'm in.

It comes in 3 pieces to help postage, and came with all the fitting hardware. Only odd tools needed were a square driver, and a 3/8" drill bit.

Look for "Joe Toth Composites" on FaceBook, he was doing a deal for the first batch of orders. I ordered on the 19th, he posted on the 25th via UPS and I got it on the 1st.

Was about $300 plus change all in, I think ..

I've a few pairs of these. Used to be UK Army issue.

I've a clean set for hiking, but this pair are old and are like slippers. Saves getting grease everwhere when I just slide them on and off hands free.

Joe Toth. Good rep on planet-9 - Awesome choice! I'd love one myself if I wasn't so worried bout scraping and losing it :)
