986 S Front bumper Replacement

I want to replace my front bumper on my 02 S. It has seen better days, so I am looking into actually replacing with an aftermarket one. What are everyone's tips, etc?

I really like the clean look of this:



made out of something called Duraflex and sold through various websites for ~$600.

Anyone have any dealings with this bumper? Any photos and recommendations for other options?

Thanks,

Not that particular bumper .. but have another duraflex bumper off ebay on my car .. better fit than expect from 'fiberglass' parts.

It would look better with a 3rd radiator...

Replacement Bumper

I would recommend going with an Aero Bumper, it looks more stock. Also keep in mind the grilles you will need with any Bumper you choose, for a nice look the bumper have grills and you can use them to mount a nice pair of DRL's
