Very nice! Although the one on the right side looks like it has a slightly larger gap where it meets the bumper. May just need to be tightened up more. Looks cool!

I've always liked the look. Cant justify the cost though for two pieces of plastic. Like to see if someone will come out with the new 2008 sport package for the 986.

They look great...I installed them on mine, as well. I like the way they cover the muffler.

Mine are made of fiberglass, which is worth far more or far less!

Gary and jmatta, are yours factory or aftermarket? Maybe it's the color of your cars, but they look like they flow with the lines of the car better then Back2DTM's. Also has anyone done any high speed event or course racing before and after the install? I would like to know if you can notice any difference in down force.

Mine are quazi-factory. The original 1999 model rear bumper got damaged in a low speed accident. The Porsche bodyshop said the cover had to be replaced and I paid for the difference in the 99 rear bumper and the facelift rear bumper.

So yes thay are OEM but did not leave the factory on my car.

Mine are the eBay specials which I painted and installed. They really blend well on a black car. My picture is kind of blurry; I'll need to post a clear one as soon as I can pull the cover back on a nice day.
