Rims look like HREs or Champion, front nose I would say RUF

I've seen that car before. You can get the waffle type grills in the front from www.tweeks.com or even certain hardware stores for cheap I heard.

Yeah that car has a really nice rear bumper add on.
its a really expensive aero kit I think its made in Germany by Caracter or something. A few places have it for $4K. Not sure about the details.
But you can get similar products from precisionporsche.com
I noticed they are now advertising in Excellence magazine, they seem to have the lowest prices but they are made of fiberglass and not polyurethane like the OEM Porsche bumpers and sideskirting. You can get the Turbo, GT3, GT2 front bumper and skirting from them for about $1500.
I'm going to be ordering skirting from them soon, waiting to hear about some Carrera 5 spoke wheels first.

That car has the Caractere kit. The wheels are BBS. The car is lowered.

LLTek sells the body kit. I was going to buy it but it's made out of fiberglass. As much as the nose scrapes at stock height, I would imagine a fiberglass front will look like crap after lowering.

i think i must live close to precisionporsche.com cuz we have the same area code.
i am thinking of just getting the side skirt for my box from them. i wanna go check it out first though. i dont want the front cuz i have eibach and it is already too low for gt2 front end, i think. i really like the side skirt but i dont know how it will look with just the skirts. anyone have just the skirts? pics??

Here's a pic they sent me. Kajita, I think some of their front bumpers come with a polyurethane lip. Maybe you could get them to add that to the GT2 nose? I'm leaning towards doing this as well but I want to see how my car looks with the Carrera 5 spokes(w/ Toyo RA-1's!!!) and the GT3 sideskirts first. Maybe I could add some sort of of lower lip made out fiberglass or something. But those louvers in between the hood and nose are excellent.

I had a fiberglass kit on my Miata, it was lowered (really low I could barely fit my hand in the wheel well) and I had a steep driveway. It scraped but Racing Beat's fiberglass wasn't el cheapo stuff like Erebuni or VIS. I was very concerned about installing the fiberglass nose but it was ok no problems though I never parked it on the street. The skirting was fine but taking it to oil change places and the occasional car wash was either out of the question or dificult.

These GT3 look skideskirts with hardware from PrecisionPorsche.com are $430.
OEM Porsche PU aeorokit II skirts are available for $700 from Suncoast.



They also have this GT3 front bumper for $800 so I guess you could do a full 'GT3 conversion' for under $1300.
