Hi all,

I’m looking at fitting a GT3 front bumper and side skirts to my C2. I’m fine with the side skirts but before ordering I wanted to check if the front bumper requires any other fixings, brackets etc?

Have any others here done this before?

I’ll be fixing a mesh behind the bumper to stop leaves and general rubbish getting to the rads.


Thanks thumbsup

It's all identical Sack-Meister. Thumb

You may need to drill out rusted screws and replace them but all fixings are the same from aero to std. The Aero bumper is just deeper around the front.

Now you just have to find one for a decent price. Good luck.

The prices seem a little all over the place. One will turn up I’m sure....!

I saw a shocker on eBay, cracked, covered in gaffer tape, total mess yet still wanting £750! Crazy.

That smashed up one on eBay really is ambitious.

There is an allegedly genuine brand new one on eBay for about 1100 from Poland which sounds much better value if it's legit. They have a 996.1 and 996.2 versions.

Thanks for the heads up on that one Armagreggon85 - it still works out quite steep when you add the £150 postage.

Dammit - Not sure from OPC - I'm waiting for them to get back to me.

Cheapest I've seen so far is £1300 from Design 911 - original GT3 part. Most are kicking around the £1500 mark.

Are you thinking about it for your Cab?

No, sorry - should be clear, sometimes these things are surprisingly cheap from OPC.

I've always found OPC to be cheaper than D911, for e.g.

Just had the cost back from OPC:

GT3 bumper - £1247 +VAT

It also required the black trim to sit behind - £117.98 + VAT

So circa £1638 inc VAT - A fair chunk for just the bumper before painting

Yeah it's still a fair whack. I'm on the hunt for a rear wing but they're expensive too. Over the last couple of years I've picked up the front bumper and skirts at reasonable prices but it's a bit of a slow waiting game for the parts to pop up.

My tactic has been to regularly check on gumtree, that's actually where I found my front bumper.

Is the only difference between the aero bumper and gt3 the section under the number plate? Solid on the aero but open on the gt3. If so, would an aero bumper and and cut the back of the centre section out not be a cheaper option?
I only ask as I have an aero and would consider cutting it for the full gt3 look. Should mention mines an early car

That section is open in order to feed an additional radiator, if you don't have one I'd not bother. If you fit one, remove the centre blanking bit of the bumper.

I’d realised that. My point was that an aero bumper would be easier got than a gt3

I'd always thought that would be a single part - didn't know that there was one with third rad cut-out and one without, I suppose it makes sense.

I can't see why you'd not get the aero-bumper if it was usefully cheaper.

It’s a valid point re the aero kit bumper rather than GT3. I’d not considered that.

Having a quick look at the usual places there’s non for sale other than the GT3. I’ll get in touch with OPC and see if it’s avilable through them and if it’s cheaper.

I’ve not seen a gt3 bumper, only in photos. I have an aero one and had thought if I was ever to go down the centre read route, I’d just cut the bumper. Other than that, my cars midnight blue so you’d never see the hole unless you were looking for it.

Sound like some bird's I used to meet on a Saturday night in Bedford Grin
