WTB - 2003/2004 engine side vents

As the title says I am looking for a pair of the engine side vents from an 03 or 04 to retrofit my 02 S . In a perfect world they would be silver but I can paint . Must be in good shape . Thanks

I have a set that are black, but would be willing to trade you for your early ones.

Are your vents in good shape... glossy... no scratches... no need to paint them... just slide them in? I could consider trading the silver vents from my 98 if RF chooses no trade.

Let me know...

Interested - I want the 03/04 vents because in theory they flow better . Why do you want earlier style ? Anyway how would you like to proceed ?

I'm torn on which I think looks better. I'm not sure I buy that there's a measurable difference in airflow with just the vent change. And, most importantly, I have a spare set from a car I parted. ;-)

I'll dig them out of the garage this afternoon and shoot ya some pics. We'll go from there.

Tried to remove the passenger side vent today , removed the screw and started pulling/grunting/swearing but no dice it would not come out It probably would come out with enough pulling but I was afraid the plastic would break making the part less usable for the trade . So I will pass for now . Thanks anyway I really wish we could have made the deal .

Here ya go.
Both speed clips are present, but the screws are not. No scratches, but there are swirl marks present (they're black, so....).

Lemme know. I'm shipping some other items this morning, so if you respond quickly, I'll get these out the door as well. ;-)

All: starter is concerned that these are not a "matching set". Will y'all please set his mind at ease, that the '03/'04 left side is a slightly different shape than the right side, because left is intake and right is exhaust.

This was Porsche-designed that way. This is a "matching set".
