Pics of Boxsters with Aftermarket Side Skirts

Hi all-

I'm looking to install a set of side skirts on a 986. But don't know what's available out there. I'm looking for something that's simple and tasteful. If you have any pics of boxsters with side skirts, please share them. Thanks in advance.

I have a pair of side skirts i believe they are the aero II that I took off my blue 2003 boxster. I'd be willing to let it go for cheap if interested. PM me if so.

JAAY: Nice setup! Those skirts are simple and work with the stock look of the car very nicely! Do you have any more pictures from the front so I can see the bumper? Any recommendations online on where to pick up these skirts? Thanks. Lovin' the 19s too!

Wingnut: Nice car! The skirts look nice but I don't like how they arch up towards the rear. Do you have more pics of the RUF bumper? Nice job!

I'm starting to think Jonny's car is a cardboard cutout, you only ever see the same angle same pic.

I personally like the arch, but they are not for everybody, and actually they look better in person than they do in pictures.

Here is another shot of the RUF bumper

These are not aftermarket, but here are my Aerokit 1s...

Wow! Lots of nicely modded Boxsters here! I'm hoping this doesn't get me caught up in the mod bug again.

Johnny: Very tastefully modded Boxster! The Hamann kit is very simple yet unique. I like the integrated side markers in the front bumper. That kit must of cost a pretty penny? Also, beautiful job on the wheels and tire. They fit the car perfectly? What are the sizes of the wheels and tires? Did you use spacers?

Wingnut: Thanks for the front bumper pic. Looks good! The Techart sides from that angle actually look pretty good. I was looking for something that looked more OE but helps make the car look lower from the side. This may be an option. Do you recommend a place online for these skirts? Thanks.

Boxtaboy: I actually like the simplicity of the aero 1 kit. A closer look at the pictures and the skirt doesn't actually cover the stock side skirt line which makes it mOREe look like an add-on. Do you think there is a way to cover the OE line with this skirt?

The TA sideskirts are stupidly expensive and are a very rare find these days. I would check out GT3tek Boxster Body Parts - 986 Spyder Look, Boxster Rear Diffuser, Side Rocker, Body Kit they might have something you would like.

I bought their side skirts for my 997 and the fit and finish was very nice and the price was very reasonable for PU (not fiberglass)

I'm not sure if it's just the way they designed them to fit, as here's another one with Aero 1 skirts that are under the line. I could prob adjust them up, but honestly don't care, as they look fine to me...

I like the factory skirts cause they are polyeurethane and not fiberglass.

Here is the OEM AerokitII front bumper and side skirts. I found them on Ebay over the years.
