Opinions of this new wide rear fender and bumper combo?

I've seen this wide body rear being sold on some web site and found this short video of a guy that bought it and has it on his Boxster with a GT2 front end. I'm not so sure that is the best front end for this new wider looking rear. What are everyones opinions? It's all fiberglass and comes with the side skirts and replaces the 986 intake vents with 987 vents. Replaces the rear fenders also and makes them 1 inch widder on both sides.

I don't know that I'm observant enough that I would have noticed the rear flares were 1" wider. So, it looks fine I guess.

The front end end looks ok, just don't like the black lip under it.

All that money spent on parts and paint and you leave your bumperettes black?

Yes, I agree. First thing I would have done would be to change the tail lights and de-amber the headlights in addition to painting the bumperetts. It's hard to see how much wider it really is in the rear after painted, but I have seen the parts primer gray on the Boxster before painting and it is very obvious. I'll have to find those pictures.

What dumbass uses a video camera for that purpose? A still camera gives a much better 'picture' of the mods.

I think the back and sides look awesome!! I don't know if its worth the cost of doing something like that, but it looks very good in my opinion.

Time to harvest thos pumpkins!

That car needs a amberctomy ASAP.

I would give the fender flaring an A+
You barely notice the difference looking at the back.
The Cayman Vents look good too.

The front end is too busy for a flowing rear end. A simple GT3 front bumper with maybe some RS intakes cut out like on the GT3 Cup cars would have been better.

The wheels look nice but fender flares make me think of BBS mesh wheels
