Hope you guys an help. I got into a fender bender this week. sucks :( I need to replace my front bumper. I have a 1999 Porsche carrera coupe. It has the full GT3 Kit on it. The dealer can only find oem parts for the car since 1999 didnt have the gt3 they cannot get the part. Can someome help me find a GT3 part number and location were I can buy it? Keep in mind its a regular 996 1999 with a GT3 bumper. I would also need any additional mountion hardware for the conversion. Thanks

The part number is in the Tequipment section of PET - I can't believe a dealer can't find that :rolleyes:

Thanks Everyone. So the GT3 style front bumper is just a regular Aero 1 bumper? Does anyone know what the part number is for a 99 Coupe? Thanks Also is it a direct bolt on or do i need a kit? Thanks again. I just dont trust them so I want to be well informed.

Also: I know this is a matter of personal taste but Now that im replaceing the front bumper should i got with a different style like maybe a turbo bumper ect?

996.505.989.02.G2X front bumper primered

Realize that does not include the lower spoiler/splitter. (996.505.986.00)

All this and mounting instructions are in the TSB.

Jorge if you go aftermarket I would strongly recommend that you get it in urethane. Fiberglass has the potential for all kinds of issues in a bumper application.

Replacement of the bumper should be straightforward bolt on with the existing hardware. However, depending on the damage, you may need additional parts replace such as the undertray and ducting for the radiators ...

Thanks For all your help. One last question. Are all the other parts required for the installation aside from the bumper and lid the same as the ones needed for a standard bumper? I just want to make sure they dont try to charge me extra for parts or labor. Thanks
