Made a few changes to the rear of the car last year (911 badge, colour coded spoiler, wiper delete) so time to sharpen up the front...



Splitter has been there a while but the headlight lenses and ducts are recent additions.

Apologies for the pic, quick one at the station this morning.

They're ducts only, no lights.

madalaa, Have you posted any photos of your updated front end?

I still have the original fog lights and side lights (although I have fitted TorB's LED side lights).
I have been looking at the combined ducts and LED lights (on offer by the shop in Beckenham), however I am not sure what the LEDS actually do, are they Fogs, Spots, or side lights and which switch would they work from (side light or Fog light)?

Thanks

I've just had some of those fitted. They act as sidelights off the usual switch, and the fogs are now redundant (never been used anyway!).
I just think I now need to get a set of 'Ambers' to finish this off - if anyone fancies a swap for some 'Clears' Question

Very nice thumbsup I think the Aero splitter really suits the darker colours especially. On the wishlist I think...

There's another type I keep looking at, it gives you ducts, fogs and side lights (if you go for the TechArt product).

Looks mega gunner Wink

Mine is similar with recent OEM GT2 Ducts, new clear indicators and new headlight lenses.

Here's a pic from a run out today. Still need to add my own private plate which I think i'm going to do with a stick on for the smooth look.

Thanks, I think the GT2 ducts are much better looking.

Mine is temporarily without front plate, but I'll be getting a stick on front plate shortly.
