headlight replacement- Boxster=996?

Recommended Posts

I have a 2000 996 with halogens and need to replace them.

 

Will the boxster headlight fit a 996- they seem to be cheaper.

I believe they are identical.  From what I have read the Boxster and 996 headlights were the same.

They fit but the 996 (halogen) headlights are indeed slightly different.

The 996 cam with electric headlight adjustment, when the 986 did not. The adjuster motor is easily transfered.

The other difference is a corrugated alloy sheet that changes the way the interior of the headlight looks at the bottom of the headlight in front of the lense (and underneath the plastic) on a 996. With this there's a diamond checkered look to it. The 986 does without and has a straight longitudinal pattern.
