WTB: headlights, tail lights, bumpers, wheels, etc

I'm currently looking to give my '00 986 a bit of a facelift. Looking for the following:

03+ front and rear bumpers
03+ clear headlights (either litronic or halogen)
03+ red and clear tail lights
18" Carrera light 5 spoke wheels (looking for the Boxster version - 7.5" fronts and 9" rears)
Clear headlight corners
Clear front side markers
*possibly* a set of lowering springs

Feel free to message me with details! Thanks!

Great mod list. I have done all of them with the exception of the bumpers. And, I would skip the bumpers. IMHO, the earlier bumpers look better and the cost of the bumpers and paint would be high. If I were to change the front bumper I would put a 996 one on. Also, add an '03 top to your list to get the glass rear window.

Great looking car! and thanks for the input! It's honestly the lower profile rear bumper with the diffusers on the 03+ that I like the most - the front bumper swap I could take it or leave it - but I'm afraid if I do the rear only the lines of the car just wouldn't flow front to back. I'm also contemplating the GT-3/Aero II style front bumper and side skirts, but I'm not sold on leaving the durability and quality of the OEM urethane for an aftermarket fiberglass kit.

Any chance you feel like parting with those wheels, headlights, or tail lights?
