I'm thinking of getting one myself. Please let me know how difficult to install and if they really help.

thanks. i believe its a matter of drilling the holes to screw it on. i would say your going to need a hoist to get the car up to do a proper job. a friend had one fitted to his boxster many years ago and loved it.......it's a toss up between a totally scratched out bumper or a boomerang that saves same and can be replaced at a later stage if needed.

I put one on my 01S. I figured that sooner or later

I would hit something and do more damage then it

cost to buy the boomerange. Sure enough, 2 weeks

after I put it on I drove up a steep driveway and

grinded the bar pretty good before I could stop.

You can always take it off and clean up the scratches

if you need/want. You cannot see I have it unless

you look under the front of the car. I also use a

car bra that hides it some too.

One note of caution, I understand if you don't mount

it right, you could catch it on something and rip the

front nose cone. I think you just need to make sure

you keep this in mind when you are positioning it

for mounting. Make sure it's centered and back as

far as possible, without blocking any air flow.

It also add a few pounds to the front of the car.

That's the pluses and minuses to consider.

Now, almost 15 years since the last post, I, too, am looking for the boomerang as I just paid $620 to have the front bumper/spoiler repaired and repainted.  Any reply would be most helpful.  thank you, pbh


Welcome to RennTech :welcomeani:

I think you will find that this device is no longer made.  Try looking for a used one, or fabricate one yourself.
