On mine would you recommend the full front set of just the corners?


Ummmm, I don't think there is a central rad in the none GTS boxster ? But it would still stop crap getting behind the bumper. I've not really paid much attention to the other 981 bumpers to be honest.

Best thing I've bought for my car, when you see the debris that comes out of the shrouds round the front rads you'll be ordering them straight away.
Also my middle rad was shot to pieces with chippings so hopefully the grills will protect from all but the smallest pieces.

My centre grille holds a stick on number plate, I was shocked to see how many holes were in this after only a few months, especially as its made of pretty tough material. The grilles are a must have as far as I'm concerned.

I have a 997.1 and didn't have to remove the bumper to fit. There is a bit of measuring and marking up to do but nothing difficult with a little patience. Thumb They do a good job and look well too boot imho.

A member in a previous post suggested you need to remove the black plastic cowl on the centre rad. Is that true does anyone have any personal experience when fitting them?

My car is a 997.1 tiptronic so has the centre rad fitted.

The instructions state that you may need to nibble a bit off the back of the locating tab on number plate plinth. It is to allow the rim of the grill to nestle into position properly but i think it would have done so anyway.

I am not aware of having to remove any centre rad' shroud but my bumper style will be slightly different from yours.

It's a shame that they don't do a set for the Turbo which sit inside the PU, rather than in front of it. I think they spoil the front of the Turbo fitting where they do.

Unless I'm missing something....


Yeah I think the same too. Hopefully they will do a re-design but I very much doubt it because of the age of the car anyway

I’ve just done my tiptronic and there was no number plate nibbling or shroud removal required.

The hardest part is drilling 3mm holes into the inner corners. Before I started I hoovered out a couple of fag butts, a car park ticket & a handful of leaves, and as well as being functional I like the clean look once it’s done.
