    Front bumper ....

    Mine after 6500km has some sign of rubble....specially in the lower part...and the front lip sometimes kiss the floor...the turbo is too low for the parking's slipway..

    i'm weeping

    How looks yours??

    Ciao

    Re: Front bumper ....

    Hey Dario,

    Don't worry, mine probably looks terrible compared to yours... ;) And the black lip has been scratched a lot of times! (My Turbo has lowered H&H suspension, and just celebrated its 93'000 km!)

    The only ways to avoid that would be:
    1. driving muuuucho slower.
    2. getting a higher car (Cayenne?)
    3. getting your Turbo a bra.

    :grin:

    Since I guess none of these options would make you happy, just don't worry! And give your front bumper a repaint when it'll bother you too much...

    Greetings!

    Dario,
    when I saw for the first time the front lip of the 996tt, I said to myself: PLASTIC??? WHAT THE HELL IS THAT??
    I could not believe that Porsche was using such orrible material for the the lip....
    Then, when I bought my car I realized why....and I cope with it although not nice to see (that was another reason why I bought my car in black)
    As for the front bumber, there is nothing you can do unless you buy a bra...or maybe there is something: avoid to stay too close (less than few cm away from the car in front of you) when overtaking it on the highway (tipical Italian!!) as it will throw you litle stones on the bumper...

    Ciao,
    Andrea

    Andrea..

    Last sunday i was on the "Serravalle" a part of highway from Genova to Milan that is like the Nurburgring Northloop and in front of me there was a Toyota Previa that on two wheeels make curves and doesn't whant let me pass...
    Then...after 5 minutes in a hard curve the driver of the Toyota lost the car ... then he stop the car to smoke four cigarettes in the same time.. and i can pass him hehehe

    My dream was to put a stone on his head

    Ciao
    Dario
