Front bumpers

Which bumpers from a 996/911 will fit a 1997 boxster as a direct fit?... I know the headlights changed but i have the orginal lights that came with the boxster. If someone could give me the the years of the 996 tha will go with these lights

I believe 1999-2001. I think it was in 2002 they changed the headlights on the 911 to further differentiate that model from the Boxster.

My hood is the same in my signature picture. The bumper costs about $100 more than the stock bumper, and the headlights retail at the dealership for about $1900 each. I think suncoast has them for $1600 each (and I thought $1200 was a lot for the pair of old Litronics I had). I have different fenders too, which cost the same as Boxster fenders.

I think this is what you are looking for :

Hope this helps...
