Hi all, I spent quite a bit of time in the past on this forum, then I sold the Z3 to make way for a Boxster. That was two years ago and now is the time to sell the Boxster.

Hi Gazza


I have a query in respect to your comment, is this an amplifier behind the left hand foot-well speaker or cross-over electronics for frequency split between the main and the tweeters?

Indeed, amp behind the LH footwell speaker.

The rears will ‘poke out’ 1.3mm past the OEM set

So yes they will fit.
