I’m not sure what part you mean. Please post either the part number or a picture.

I hate to use this term but the plastic "mud Flaps /stone protectors" behind the rear wheels.

Hmmm..... you may need to potest a pic. I don't have anything like that on my car.... nor do I think I've ever seen any installed on a 986. Or maybe I'm just not yet picturing what you're describing.

The only thing behind the rear wheels (at least on those I've looked at) is the rear bumper cover.

I would guess semi-gloss to flat black, most durable you can find.

My problem is the little rubber trim piece on the bottom falls off eventually, so I buy a new one.
