Bumper replacement

Ive seen a few crappy "body kit" looking bumpers for 986's that I dont like, but my bumper should be replaced if I plan on painting my car, which i do.

Is there any bumpers for the 986 that mimic the Carrera 996 or 997 "look"?

There are numerous aftermarket companies that offer 996 and 997 style bumpers for your 986 boxster . I compiled quite a few sites for the following link :

Thanks for that, I browsed through it all. I guess ill be looking for something used. $1,000+ for any of the 996 or 997 style bumpers is just way more than I can justify spending

I have a front bumper in great shape from an '03, complete with grills, that I would be willing to sell. It's silver, and I have no idea what it would cost to ship it to you, but shoot me a pm if you're interested and I'll look into it.
