Rice request: Facelift 986 with GT3 sideskirts and stock bumpers..

Basically my stock mudflaps are done and instead of looking to waste money replacing them, i'm looking to upgrade them and trying to decide of these skirts will look tacky with stock bumpers.

To me there is only one side skirt that doesn't look tacky and it's the one from Porsche's Boxster Aerokit 1.



I have not found a company making a replica of the side skirt yet, but you can still get these for $320.37 per side skirt, not including shipping cost.

I saw those, very sleek, but they utilize a rear rubber piece.

Boxster Side Rocker, Spyder Look, Polyurethane Side Rockers

If you add the factory GT3 bumper to the Boxster, the Mk2 style look nicer than the factory Mk1 for the Boxster imo.

I got these from precisionporsche.com for $350 a long time ago. Unfortunately not polyurethane but they've held up very well. Fiberglass is more problematic for the front and rear bumpers.

(18" 997 Turbo replicas for winter, bought a rear replacement wheel on Amazon for $250 if you can believe it).




I picked up the rear difuser (in very bendable poly urethane) from gt3tek.com during a sale, brought it down to my body shop guy to get painted, he was on vacation, that was a two years ago. Still sitting in my spare room It looks nice in this pic though.
