Smile 1997 Boxster, Purchasing Rear Spoiler

Hi Everyone, first of all let me say this is a fantastic forum, Congratz! I am looking to buy a spoiler for my 97 boxster from spoilerdepot on ebay which they are posting as we speak.

They told me the spoiler will fit 98-03 boxsters only, because the 97 trunk lid was changed in 98. I am not convinced of this, could anybody clarify if in fact the trunk lid was changed? I don't want to buy the spoiler and find out they were right.

Thanks, Frank

Hi,

The Trunk lid is referred to as a Cover and the part number is 986.512.011.02 GRV and the Spoiler itself is made up of several parts with part number: Upper Part - 986.504.609.01.G2X, Bracket - 986.504.613.01. None of these parts is model-year specific, they are universal.

As mentioned, your Boxster already has the Spoiler. If you want to change it, I'd be leery of a company who doesn't know that it s/b universal and doesn't know that much about the application for their product. Good Luck!...

Happy Motoring!... Jim'99

Hi, that is the one i'm looking at and the only reason i'm thinking of purchasing it is to give my car a different look from the others in the neighborhood.
Thanks for your feedback
Do you think it looks nice

The spoiler i'm looking at is an after market bolt on that goes on the trunk cover.
Thanks
