the flares and ft bumper cover are OEM Cup. The wing and deck lid came from a friend so I am not 100% sure of a brand. If you are looking for something similar I can put you in touch. Shoot me a pm. I did cut the fenders, although some do not.

I picked up this used 2010 997.2 C2S up about six weeks ago. The car is not blue. It's actually a black on black spec. The blue you see here is a vinyl wrap (done by the previous owner) and I do not know the condition of the paint under the wrap. But the wrap was professionally done and it is still in good condition. So for now my new to me 997 is a blue on black spec. haha

Nice... that blue is hypnotic. Very nice. Do you see yourself ever going back to the stock color? I'm personally not sold on vinyl wraps, but they look good. I guess my concern would be durability. I wonder if it could be matched up if something scratched it. Thank you.

The wrap looks good according to the photo. I'm also curious how long they last. Most wrap I see are those matte colors and they look horrible!

I agree. Most of them of applied to the car poorly and don't cover all the edges which reveals the stock color. Makes it look cheap. The high quality jobs cover all painted areas. But my concern would be if the vinyl can be easily matched up when replacing sections. Paint blending technology has improved dramatically over the last 10-15 years. I wonder if the vinyl will be on the same level?
