Well I purchased my Porsche Cayman S 987.1 a few weekends ago after a months of looking and as soon as I saw it I knew she was the right one for me. She's a four owner, 2007 with 81,000 miles on her and absolutely fastidiously maintained.

I have a lot of plans in the pipeline and I'm already collecting parts to lavish on her.

Anyway, I'll let the pictures do the talking. This is how she looked upon purchase...

So I removed the side Porsche decals over the weekend which in my mind makes it look much more sleek.

I've also collated new side indicator lenses with chrome bulbs and upgraded Nighteye LED bulbs for the headlights, sidelights and foglights which I'll be fitting this weekend.

I think I'm going to look into coilovers next as the ride is VERY crashy (No PASM + 19's). Potentially BC Racing as they are have ride height, damping and camber adjustment.

Here is the before and after of the bulb upgrade. I'm very happy with the outcome both aesthetically and functionally

Unless those bulbs are E1 approved they should fail the MOT, as they are illegal for road use, and I dont think there are any approved aftermarket LED bulbs

But agree they look soooo much better
