GT3 front bumper

Got my car back from the body shop the other day, they did an excellent job. Had them put the car back stock and paint the new bumper so I could install it with the side skirts later. Waiting on the rhino-lip before I finish the install.

I love it! well worth the money and glad I went with OEM on the bumper- it all lines up great.

Looks great. I have a new OEM GT3 bumper waiting to be painted in the same color. Did they put primer on yours? Or did they just sand it down? Where did you get the rhino lip?

Looks great! Can I ask what you paid and how much lower it is compared to the original bumper? I love the look and I'd like to pull the trigger but have a lot of speed bumps in my área. With the original bumper it's not a problema.

Rhino lip from eBay (West Africa). I will take some more pics and give a little feedback on the product when I get it installed.

Prep and paint for the front bumper was done by a body shop- I hope they used primer!

Wow 850 for the bumper? Any chance you could post the link for a fellow boxster owner? Haven't been able to come across an oem front aero bumper for that money.

It was purchased from an individual- so no link.

Need to get the side skirts on- more pics coming.

Ive got the side skirts already- I purchased an aftermarket fiberglass set. Hopefully next week we will do the dry fit- prep and paint (and you know they will not need any modification!) yea right!

I will PM you on the rear bumper- Thanks.
