Boxster Custom Fitted Luggage

Hi everybody, as you will see I am a new boy on the block and this is my first posting.
I am looking to buy new or second hand a set of custom fitted luggage for my mature (2002) Boxster S.
From what I can determine, the firms that make this kit seem as rare as hen's teeth! I have located a couple over your side of the pond but would love to hear from anybody that has experience of buying a set from anywhere else or who may in fact have a set they want to part with.
I have seen two configurations, one with two cases back and front and one with two in the front and one in the back, which is my favoured option.

Kind regards to all, Chris

Porsche Design makes it. Very expensive! Like 369 USD for a "medium trolley."

You can find soft luggage that works very well. My airline luggage was surprisingly close!

And WELCOME.

Thanks for that Mike and the welcome,
I've seen a couple of manufacturers in the States that manufacture luggage sets for the boxster and I have also seen a German manufacturer whose product I preferred but the nuisance is, I didnt take a note of the name and try as I may, can not find their website again.
I think as you suggest, soft bags it is going to have to be.
Thanks again for your help.
Chris

I would measure the dimensions of the trunk, er, boot and take that to a luggage store and find a good fit. I have a set of American Tourister that fits quite well.

On a side note, it you do travel often with a full trunk, you may want to consider the Das Shield to protect from damage (don't ask me how I know)

Welcome!
