What do you want to achieve? A more aggressive look? A more flashy look? high speed (ie over 100mph) spoiler stability?

The euro RS look for many on this board (myself included) is the most pleasing "body upgrade" on a NA 993...

A Pontiac Fiero fiberglass body kit is really the way to go.

Any alterations to a 993 body will be a downgrade.

Look at the Rauh Welt threads. Now that is an upgrade?

Put 996 headlamps on it...that will be sure to increase the resale value.

These are a way a repond to someone's second posting? Apologies to the original poster.

The principal way people like to change the look on their 993 is stance (lowering suspension) but it's pretty costly and there are many ways to go on this with little agreement as to what is best. Possibly your car is already euro height? As mentioned a Turbo look front bumber, especially euro style (no bumperettes) looks great on the 993. There are other syles as well. Less costly and very affective are a change in wheels. Which ones do you have? Depending on the wheels you have, polishing the outer rim and powdercoating the inner part of the wheel black or smoke grey can make a huge difference at relatively little cost. Changing the orange signal lights in front to clear also is a great change and very popular (use a clear bulb that lights up orange for best effect).

Welcome and Good Luck!

I think the factory Aero kit 1B looks nice.


One with the RS/CS front lip

I agree with you maybe a nice set of wheels (if you have to) to give your car it's own individuality. If US spec, getting rid off the bumperetes and lowering the car would be a good mod.

Anything extreme imo doesn't look great. It makes me sad when I see huge amounts of money spent on cars only for the owner to realise after only a short while that the 993 is a fine looking motor as it came out the factory. The biggest problem are the non-reversible mods so you really do have to choose wisely.

A split grill/turbo S air scoops is a nice mod. Not extreme in my opinion.

Welcome to the board. It would be nice if you could post a photo of your car to help us make some suggestions...

Welcome!

+1 on lowering, but you are in Venezuela, so you may already be at ROW height. I like the turbo front bumper (or RS splitters), RS Tail, RS side rockers.
