Name this Bumper

Can anyone tell me what kind of front bumper this boxster has on it? I like it the best. An Ebay seller here in Houston is selling the side skirts pictured for less than $400, but I don't think they'll look all that great with my factory bumper on the car. Can anyone ID the bumper?

Turbo, we'd all like this bumper at a great price! There aren't too many sold at a sizeable discount though.

I dont think its a turbo, its definitly the Aero Kit II, and i believe those came with a GT3 front bumper.

good price for the skirting. Its usually $800 unpainted.
The bumper is the 1st generation 996 GT3 bumper which was sold later
as the aerokit II for the Boxster.
I bought my GT3 bumper from an ebay seller 'DE parts'. They listed it
for $900.

p.s. those tech art wheels make a huge difference


you can add the SuperCup lip spoiler from the 2nd Generation 996 GT3
as seen here to the 1st generation GT3 front bumper with GT3 RS inlets and meshing.

Randall we have similiar tastes in body mods. I also used the same car when I was trying to determine what I want to do.

I am going to go with a GT2 bumper, Aerokit II skirts, and wing. Probably over the winter project.

If you are pricing things out I will be going with these guys www.departstop.com. Good prices and they will sell the wing seperately.
