If you want the bigger mouth... then you need to purchase another car (05 upwards). The front bumpers have different dimensions, so it's not a Q of swapping your current one for the newer one. Then you will have to paint, etc... lots of $$ for a cosmetic change. OK, it's your money and your car.

Now, you could take away the current chrome front + black mesh and chrome the black mesh only, but that is also expensive (chroming is not cheap) so dunno...

LeoNardo makes some cosmetic enhancements, but they are also very expensive.

Your choice...

i am starting to see that- unlike porsches- aftermarket options are minimal and very expensive

Yes, but unlike porsches, you now own a MASERATI.

You will not need all these other doodads on the car.

A stock Maserati will get more attention than any dressed up 911 will ever get, all without looking like you are trying to get attetion.

will the 05 front and rear bumper "bolt on" to an 02? I know sumbody on the forum did it I can't spell his name but started with an "A" and he was from Kuwait.

You mean Abdulrahman?

See my post at the beginning. They have slightly different dimensions, and even if I'm wrong, possibly even different bolt-on points.

I have an entire 2005 upper and lower front bumper, very small scratch at the edge where it meets the hood. I had a suv back into me while parked and the trailer hitch scratched the bumper/hood and had the insurance replace the whole thing. I was keeping it for a spare just incase anything else happened but now that I'm selling the car there's no need to keep it.

Does the 2003 have the headlight washers? If you're interested in it, PM me with an email address and I can send you actual pics of it.
