Default RS Flared Side Skirts for Turbo S

I noticed that Suncoast has the RS Flared Side Skirts as an add on to our cars. They give a little more shape to the lower waist area of the car. Has anyone tried this simple mod? I'm interested in doing them.

It's a very simple swap. I have the factory aero kit painted in gloss black. The RS side skirt comes unpainted and so I just vinyl wrapped the suckers myself for under $100. Body shop wanted almost $1700 to paint them. So far the vinyl has been holding up fine. In the youtube video below, Cam replaced all of the clips and mounting parts. I just reused the ones that were from the stock skirts since my car was practically new with under 200 miles on it when I did the swap.

Default Part numbers?

Do you have the part numbers for the flared side skirts that you can share on the post?
Thank you.

Update: I was able to find them on the video:

I got verification from Suncoast that the ones that they sell are OEM from Porsche. Those are the correct part numbers that you have.

I should have been more clear...I'm having the Aerokit installed by a professional (which I am not)...and happy to let you know how it goes!

Apologies for the necro-bump, but curious if anyone else has done this - $349 at SunCoast seems pretty reasonable... Pics would be great

Did them on my TTS. Took me about 40 minutes to do both sides. I still like them after a little over a year ago.
I think it finishes the car off.

They fit perfect and look great, I added these with the carbon fiber side intakes, not much difference, but it worked for me.

I did it also. Very quick job, one of those mods only you will notice. I also think it adds a bit of protection to the rear flares from gravel/sand kicked up by the front wheels.

I did it, too, and it was about a 20 minute job and very easy! Only people on this thread will notice exactly what you did, but others will think the car just looks better. No brainer!
