Ok lost it on a draw bridge...tried to shift on the metal grading when it was 15 degrees did a 360 n slammed the curb ****

ice...to make it short i need a new front bumper for my boxster...I know that most 996 and 986 bumpers are compatable

for a more original look but i was wondering if any1 knows if a 987 bumper will fit a 986...I know how porsche loves

interchangable parts and was wondering if this ideal carried over between the generations....And yes i learned my lesson

my baby is now under her car cover and staying there until it gets much warmer out...Please help Guys

997's have different headlight shapes so it won't be a bolt on...

ok so how about a 2004 boxster s front end on a 00 boxster

I believe that all 986 front ends are interchangeable since the headlights did not change as did the 996. However, the vents in the front bumper for the 986 did change in the first facelift so parts of the front bumper are not interchangeable (such as the grill louvres or aftermarket grill mesh)...just the bumper as a whole.

100% correct. I'm doing allot of research on this ATM (as my own front and rear bumper covers need replacement).

Be aware that the "996-GT2", if you use GENUINE parts, will also require the GT2 litronics (headlamps), hood, and front BC & ductwork. Not 100% sure about the ground effects panels underneath. LA Porsche part puller, 911-pcar.com, sells this as a kit for ~$5000 complete (unpainted). Love the look, but one may find it hard to pass the funding request through the spousal unit, though.

You can get very decent aftermarket units. There are a few awesome looking GT2-style BCs that make use of the standard Boxster lighting or the Boxster litronics without mods. I'm currently surfing through those to find out who has decent ductwork behind them.

My $0.02--stay away from aftermarket *fiberglass*. Last thing you want is to toe-in to a poorly designed driveway and split your nose open. Go with Fiber reinforced Polyurathane. There's A Reason Porsche Does That .

And, no matter what you get, get a "boomerang." It's a screw in metal skidplate that will keep you from crying the first time you mis-judge nose clearance...

Best regards,
