Smile Painted bumperette pic request!

Hey guys - I'm having the updated 2003 rear bumper installed on my 2000 boxster after swapping out the front bumper for the updated look as well... Now I'm debating on asking them to paint the rear bumperettes as well since they'll be spraying the new bumper... just cant decide if I want to do it or not. Might look good having the arctic silver bumperettes rather than the black.....

Can anyone with painted bumperettes please post their pics!? Preferrably with the '03 style rear bumper, would be awesome!

Thanks!

Do it! Painted bumperettes look great. There several members here that have done it, and are very pleased.

That's a great price. At www.bumperplugs.com they charge about $275 for excellent quality work.

Just had them done ...

I just got my bumperettes painted from a local body shop in town. They came out great - an excellent upgrade to the Boxster! (sorry the pic isn't the best - camera phone)

Looks great!
BTW, where can I get a spoiler like yours?
Any other pics of it?

Thanks! The spoiler is part of the Aerokit I package that's on my car. I'm sure it can probably be found online somewhere.

Here are some pics that I took earlier this year when I purchased the car:

I know there are some of the rear spoiler .. Enjoy
