Check this out on http://forums.rennlist.com/. go to Rennlist Discussion Forums > Water Cooled Discussion Areas > 996 Forum > Turbo Rear Bumper on narrow body car ??? "Don W cape cod" on this thread put a turbo bumper on his narrow body car. The bumper flares backward about 1/2 inch. What do you think alter_schwede and others? I have a 99 cab. I would love to put this on my car but am concerned about the fit. Don't want it to look like a hack job.

hey my996,

I have seen a few which were not so great fitted, specially around the backlight roundings.

But I would say all depends how picky you are, and I'm very much at that so I would then rely much of a good tuning shop to help me with that to get everything perfect.

Myself have decide to put the "facelift" bumper with ParkDistansControl and the dualpipe exhaust tips, everything are OE parts from Porsche.

The TT bumper fits flush along the sides of the fenders and flares out about 1/4" as it rounds the tail lights then fits flush along the engine cover. Have to shorten or replace bumper mount; re-route exhaust 'cause the outlets are closer together than stock; and you need a different heat shield and TT tips as well.

the '02- bumper will fit 100% but you will need 2 new heat shield console and 2 new tips due to the '02- bumper is around 2cm lowered. the stock tips are cheap, can easily find them on eBay all the time.

@Don, seen your car and it is seldom to find with that perfection around here!

so, if I order the parts you listed for the back bumper, it will 100% fit on to my 1999 996 C4 Cab?

Also, there do not seem to be any back rubber bumpers on this version. Do I need those or can I do without them? Personally, I like it better without the bumperettes.

the tips are the same as ArtherK's! original Tequipment sports tips for '02-.

the bumper part no. are from the RoW catalog and is the same for the GT3 w/o bumperettes.

fitment, the bumper will fit to the body 100% but then all the rest e.g. retaining console and heat shield on the back of the bumper might need some adjustment, not really sure at the moment.
