Any any suggestions for the best aftermarket supplier, or is OPC parts dept the way to go? Any advice appreciated!

Just picked mine up from FD Motorsports in California, $95 plus postage.They are very good quality and 3M. I've seen some cheap ones on eBay but wasn't sure of quality. I think OPC charge £66 for each side for the OEM ones.

I see that you have already bought the stone guards but I looked a few years back and contacted http://www.prestigeparts.co.uk/ (No affiliation) They were helpful, seemed to know what they were doing and the price was good. They have the ability to change the shape if needed. I did not buy from them in the end as I had the small dent in the RHS rear arch removed, it was so small it was possible to roll it out, and no need to replace the stone guard. However I would look to them again if I needed new stone guards.

Now I'm no expert on plastics... but I've bought/applied a hell of a lot of decals and I am certain that if we could find the pattern (and that's as easy as tracing the shape off my car) we could get them made by someone like Stickeredup4lemans on any 3M clear material we stipulated for a fraction of the cost/numbers people are quoting above!

I bet Carbone would do it. Mind you, they charge Porsche Tax too.

Hi 911smark,

Good to hear that they fitted perfectly. As I said, I would go to Keith too for replacement as I had a chat with him online in the past and he was very helpful.

Can you give us a heads up on how you went about removing the old ones and fitting the new ones please?

I think I know where you are coming from. I had both mine replaced by OPC in Kuwait back in 2010 before I exported the car to the UK. The guy at OPC Kuwait said it took him a whole day to remove both stone guards, they came off thumb nail piece by thumb nail piece. They were 15 years old by then and had been subjected to some pretty high Kuwait summer temperatures of 52C Cool

They did a good job though. Very Happy

Decgraham, I did not fit them myself, my body shop guy did, However I think he removed the old one's with a hairdryer / heat gun and then used plenty of soapy water to apply the new one's.
