Need some advise from you all on here regarding a front bumper and rea


Recommended Posts

A little about the car is a 2000 Carrera Cab blk on blk.

Im thinking of ordering a GT3 Polyurethane Front Bumper from GT3tek and wanted to know anyones experiences with the bumper itself and its looks? How's the quality? will the bumper look ok without the sides and rear bumper? I was told it hangs down a little lower than stock and will look off? Is it that noticable and will it throw off the lines of that car that much? My current bumper is messed up and was going to get a replacement anyways so I figured I change the look a bit since Im at it. Attached photo of the bumper.

Now as for spoilers Im debating on the Duraflex GT3 wing or a Turbo wing? I like the way the Turbo wings look but how does it look on a non turbo car? Out of place? Also is it possible to have it fully functional on the car?

Any insight or thoughts and opinions would be great.

Thanks in advance.

You may want to talk with the shop who will be doing the work (if not doing yourself)...

When I had my bumpers updated, they said they would do one of the off brands, but very much recommended factory parts.

They were concerned fitment would not be perfect, and would only guarantee absolute satisfaction if factory parts were used

He showed me some pics they had done of a couple other cars with non-Porsche parts, and though looked ok, it was enough to convince me to get the real stuff.

The line where bumper met the hood were not perfect.. Just tiny variations of that curve where the gap was smaller in the center than on the sides. Slight, but enough for me.

I did the factory GT3 front bumper on my 2001, and it came out perfect... I did leave the basic sides, and it looks fine to me.

I can't help you on the spoilers.

How much did the OEM bumper cost you? As for shops no one locally seems to have any experience with the poly bumpers so depending on pricing is what it comes down to. Thanks for your reply!
