Carrera Bumper on my 986

Picked this up recently and just recently got to snap a couple pics of it all painted and on the car. I love the look!

LOL...I noticed that. Its a new camera and I don't know if its the lighting or the camera. Here's a pic of it w/the old camera. This is a much truer look of the car.

i was considering a new bumper, but after lowering the car even this one is wayyy too low

It's a stock bumper for a 99-01 996, not a Boxster,Car is red.. my favorite color
(In post #1, Post #3 is indeed the stock bumper)

Looks great!
Wish I could find me an 02+ GT3 bumper for 70 bucks!
