What about the center oil cooler?? Looks like there is a cutout there, but it isn't removed. Is the GT3 bumper car a S?

Looks good but I don't know 986s that well so to me I couldn't even tell it was different, at first. I guess that just goes to show how natural that looks on the car.

Tri GEm, any clearance issues driving with the lip spoiler on the road. That GT3 bumper sits low to begin with and the lip spoiler leaves maybe four inches?

On the road no, no issues....Driveways Ehhh big problem...I basically have to parallel park in order to go up driveways...As far as clearance in inches...about 3 and 1/4 inches.....and im being generous

I will update once I drive it more…Ive only driven it one day really and that was to the OC PCA meeting last Saturday and it only scraped once and it wasn’t bad

Might have to make some adjustments on the suspension

Cali is one thing... I don't think I could put that thing on in Pittsburgh. My stock bumper at stock height is bad enough around here.

When people risk their lives, shouldn't it be for something very important?
Well, it better be.
But what is so important about driving faster than anyone else?
Lots of people go through life doing things badly. Racing's important to men who do it well.
When you're racing, it's life. Anything that happens before or after is just waiting.

A guy at my PCA has the GT3 with the MK2 lip spoiler aka air splitter and on this section of a popular autocross venue the lip digs into the ground hard making a "hair on the back of your neck stand up" tearing sound.

He dont' care!

Will a 2004 GT3 bumper fit on our boxsters? My friend knows someone that is selling one, but I need to know if it will fit. Anyone? Thanks.

only if you spent another $5,000 to change the headlights, fenders and wiring for the healdights. It has been done to Boxsters that have been totalled in a front impact.

Allot of guys with the 1999-2001 911 do this its called a "face lift". Makes sense since if you can find used parts, it will helps sell the car.

p.s.
TriGem get some bumper plugs for that thing already!
some use the trunk carpet interior fasteners (Home Depot or pepboys), sanded and painted with touch up paint.

our Fried egg headlights and the Turbo headlights are completely different shapes, thus the opening for the headlights are different shapes as well.
