My new Aerokit II front bumper (AKA GT3) is being installed as you read (side skirts are being painted at same time, but I'll be installing in a week or so)

Has anybody installed the GT3 Chin Spoiler also? Mine was not included and I've been looking around for the part number.

Thanks!

You can see the part I'm looking for at the bottom of Al Vogl's car:

I have the chin spoiler on my 02 Carrera C2 with the stock suspension. Two things should be noted:

1) Be prepared to scrape the bottom of the chin spoiler when driving over speed bumps and in and out of driveways. The angle at which you enter a driveway or a speed bump becomes critical. :( As well, curb stops in parking lots are chin spoiler killers :cursing:

2) Order an extra set of plastic clips for the inevitable of tearing off the lower spoiler.

Having said all this, I would still put it on even as I consider going to the ROW M030 suspension!!!! It's just a cost of Porsche ownership I guess.

How did you get rid of the yellow turn indicators inside the headlamp housing case ? I'm putting clear side marker lights on my 1999 996, to get rid of the yellow plastic on the sides this weekend but was kinda not sure if the headlamp's yellow plastic/glass can be done with for clear stuff. Looking at your car's front end, it appears that can be done.

So ... how did you do it and what parts were required ?

To know what yellow plastic lights I'm talking about check this ... very similar to my car

You need new headlights.

Either Clear halogen headlights lights or Litronics. 911 headlights have been clear since 2000, Boxters have been clear since 2003. There is no way to remove the yellow in the lights you show because it is molded in.

Check ebay. A pair of used Clear halogens go for $600, a pair of used Litronics go for $950.

Thanks for that. My local dealership said that it can be done without changing the whole lamp. They said I'd need to disassemble the lamp and replace with the following parts.

Parts required (unverified) :

996-631-04500 (left)

996-631-04600 (right)

Cost ~$30 (USD) each.

Sunset told me that I'd need to order the entire headlamp assembly on each side. I'll write more when I get more details ...

If there hasn't been a miscommunication with the dealer, I would find a new one.

There is no way to remove the amber from your main headlight units. The parts you talk about above are only the small corner triangles. The yellow is molded into the main headlight units.

Hmm ... I guess I'll leave the lamps as they are. I thought it might be a small job and for less than $200-150. I'll change them when there is a stronger reason !

thanks guys
