Thanks Richard. I would definetly go for the painted even though my car is black. If this was matched with a subtle lip on the stock front bumper (like the one in this picture) I think it it would look nice. Without being OTT...

Here is the link for the painted version if you want to pass this along to your nephew... http://www.eagleday.com/po997tastrew.html

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year :D

Spoiler, such an apt name. Screw it in up top for the 993 "basket handle" look. :D

I suppose the only time I want a spoiler on the back of my car is when it's doing something I need. Seems that Porsche has taken care of this for me by making one that only comes to keep me from going airborne at high speed. This add-on spoiler is definitely subtle, but who knows what effect this little guy will have on your high-speed stability?

I love the classic 911 profile and feel like I'm in the minority sometimes when I look at the pictures of parked 911s with their spoilers erect. It's like some kind of German Cialis ad, I can imagine the car sitting in a bathtub with $29.00 playing in the background and a baritone man from the fatherland chiming in: "Wenn die Zeit ist recht…"

I'd say if you want something back there it should have a purpose other than looking fast standing still. If your car's not a track rat or going for the land speed record, why bother? If you must, the aerokit spoiler is the best match in my eyes.

Thanks Mark. You have a valid point. Although I went on to the Tech Art website and this spoiler has been wind tunnel tested... It is truly an aesthetic add on.

:cheers:

Wow, I should've clicked through to the link. It's great that they put the effort into making it safe, some folks might not think to check.

I remember a big debacle back when the New Beetles were indeed new. Everyone was getting these boomerang-shaped rear spoilers on the decklid. When the 1.8T came along, it had a retractable spoiler at the top of the rear windscreen. Not long after, a TSB came along warning against installing an aftermarket spoiler with the stock retractable due to high-speed stability issues. Did that stop 'em? Nope.

And then the NB's fairer sister, the Audi TT, had a recall to install a spoiler that prevented high speed take-off. Aesthetic and necessary. :)

Phillip, I thought you promised your were going to keep this car stock :D

Just kidding, bottom line, if YOU like it then why give a crap what other people think. There are as many opinions on this forum as members... I have the Getty Turbo design on mine and I think it looks great and I get a lot of comliments and head turners! B)

I guess keeping my car stock is like trying to keep a good bottle of vodka for "special occaisions" :lol:

I just like to hear what people think. I will do what I want anyway.. There are purists and people who like flat blue turbo's with black wheels :o

We all like Porsches so it's all good

I saw this TA style spoiler. What do you guys think? Cool? Stupid?

You can get a carbon fiber version or one painted to match your color.

It does require drilling holes in your decklid.....

I love it. I was looking at the same exact piece for my car. I will probably do it after the holidays.

Sweet....

:cheers:

I just installed it last night. I bought mine from Directcartoys. The quality of the piece is outstanding. Fit and finish is perfect. The paint match was perfect. The installation went very smoothly.

I Love it.
