Went with the Classic Ducktail from Getty on mine. Here's a few old shots.

They are vinyl custom stripes from KI Studios. I found the original 997.2 Sport Classic for sale in London and asked the dealer to measure the stripes. To my surprised he responded. From edge to edge the width is 38 centimeters. The gap between the stripes is 3 centimeters and each stripe measures 17.5 centimeters wide. I gave these measurements to KI Studios to create. I used a custom metallic vinyl that is not listed on the website. I installed them myself and made all of the cuts for the all sections. It was pretty though getting the curve around the inlets in the duck. It was a DIY that I don’t want to repeat. However, I knew if I let anyone else do the cuts it wouldn’t look factory. I give myself an 8 out of 10. Not perfect but still looks good.

Agreed. If you are going to spend the money to install a duck you minds well go ahead and do the 3rd brake light delete under the rear window. It looks more integrated vs having 2 rear 3rd brake lights (one functional and one not functional). Of course this is just my opinion since many have opted to leave it on.

Got excited for a quick minute but doesn't look like it's happening.

Thanks Roman. The exhaust is Cargraphic but the tips are Fabspeed black chrome.

The bumperettes actually are removable by screws. I believe there's a write up somewhere on here. As for the CF panel it was a custom cut out to fit in the full space and mounted in place to cover up the bumperette deletes. I've seen others cover it using carbon fiber 3M Di Noc vinyl as well. I chose to go with real carbon.

Did you swap out the bumper for the euro bumper or did you remove the rivets?

Just had the rivets removed and kept all OEM parts. It would have been more of a hassle to find a good condition euro bumper, ship, respray, then add the carbon.

it’s the same for 997.1 and 997.2
E.g. 997.1 turbo has exactly this cover 99750434501

Sorry, I meant specifically if you bought the bumper beam as the euro part, not the bumper cover since you just put the CF cover. Is it 2 rivets on the top and bottom that are attached to the beam that you drilled out?

#17: $447.35 (mine came with heat shield #22)
