986 ".2" Lip?

Does anyone make a lip for the 03/04 986 front bumper?

I got exactly what I was looking for from Techart. Not particularly cheap, however.

The 996 gt3 cup lip is what i put on my 03 after seeing it used on a couple spec boxsters. it looks great, should be actually functional and was basically bolt on since the bumpers are very similar in shape

Not bad! It bolts on through exisiting holes below the stock bumper, or you need to drill at various points?

No you have to drill a few holes, i bought a mounting kit with about 10 screws and 8 plastic rivets and at the edges you have to get a little creative with how you mount it because of the shape of the boxster bumper but it is otherwise super simple and fits very well

I'm sorry, but not even in the same class as Techart.

PM member Joe toth; for visuals, he has a few models I think.
He'll make one custom if you need 'special'. That guy does amazing work apparently and pretty switched on within the Porsche club.

Will do. TY. I'd be happy finding a Techart lip. That makes the bumper look better than anything else available.
