Question Porsche Bodykit?

Just sending out a feeler thread to see if anyone has any suggestions or ideas for a 996 full bodykit. I haven't looked up anything but what do you guys think? Any particular brand or model that stands out to you guys?
Also what shop locally can supply them and/or which is the best place to get it in terms of quality/service/value?
If pics can be provided that would be even better

Gemballa / Techart / Ruf are the major players with the best quality, but also some of the most expensive.

I would seriously considering upgrading to a 997 before spending $5-$10k on a bodykit on a 996 that's worth maybe $30k.

If you really want a body kit, I would consider the factory porsche aerokit gt3 bumpers and rockers..

im running the GT3 factory aerokit, with GT3RS wing
only kit i would go for is prob the factory GT2 front bumper (which im doing later this year ) or techart gt2 bumper

if i remember correctly, yours is a C2 too right? unless you buy a narrow-body turbo/gt2 rear bumper, theres not much option

im not too fond of the 996 -> 997 conversion, and i love the look of the 996 personally,
i have a set of replica gt2 sideskirt and rear bumper if ur interested

heres some links: http://www.betterbodiesmotorsport.com/index.htm , http://www.jacquemond.com/indexuk2.htm

^ if im not wrong, that would just be a deformed(narrowed) aftermarket fiberglass replica bumper because GT2 has wide front/rear fender and it won't be a bolt on thing for C2.

actually, the gt2/turbo/c4s,also known as the widebody of the 996, has the same front, so a turbo/gt2 bumper will fit on all 996 but the rears are different because gt2/turbo/c4s are wider (i think by 1inch or so?) than the normal c2,c4 narrowbody

sell it and buy a 2003-04 GT3. 2000 is a bit old for dropping too much money into. IMO

you'll love the GT3.

OP's 996 is a 2000 so pre facelift? with diff headlights? are you looking to replace them as well?

I have seen the GT2 front bumper for a pre facelift one though in hk


but yeah your options might be more limited because of the fact that your car is a 2000 model, you'll be looking at big bucks putting in so many pieces and getting them painted and installed right.
