Figured I'd ask here first to see if anyone had a set they were looking to sell. I got my last set from Gert and I planned on getting another set for the new car.

I've got those as well, I was impressed with the quality given they're very reasonably priced.

Thanks. I’ll see how they fare. Picked up a few other odds and ends from them as well.

I purchased and installed a set of these as well. Excellent finish quality for scuff, prime n paint.

I used "touch up direct" rattle can paint and clear coat to finish.

Wow... I purchased a pair in July of last year for $190 less than they are now listed for at Sunset Porsche. If I was aware of the aftermarket ones in the UK I would have bought those. At over $500 for a pair of OEM ones it is a no brainer.

Just a little tip when fitting. Even if you are not venting to the front discs get some trunking to deflect air to the rads just looks neater.

I covered the back of mine with fine speaker grille mesh, stops crap going down and looks better than being "open"

They Scoops showed up already... FAST Shipping! They honestly look BETTER quality than the ones I got from Gert years ago. I'm impressed. I'll probably duct some tubing somewhere... Thanks, Endoman,

They look good, but do they replace the park lights, or the fog lights? Or do they work as both?

They take the position of the fog lamps but the LED lights in the scoops really do nothing more than act like a city light... no real road spread illumination benefit. So, the corner lamp still acts like it does stock as the corner marker and turn indicator. I have decent HID conversion headlamps so I’m content with the lighting I get from them. I just think the scoops look sweet
