That's awesome.

Can't wait to see install pics of the diffuser. Mine came with paint matched and gloss black rear lower bumper part, so the addition of a more aggressive diffuser could look really good.
It is definitely crazy when you think about it. And yeah, not earth shattering numbers on a tuned GTS, but take for instance my M6GC; a simple OBD tune can yield you 90+whp. Insane.

My GTS also has that same gloss black diffuser yours has. They have tiny little humps (not worthy to calls fins) on them that I think need to be exaggerated, so I'm hopeful this new diffuser fills that void.

I really need to take a close look at the diffusers for the 2015 bumper, I have not come across anything that stood out.

The tune via email is insane, I agree times have changed! Glad it is that simple nowadays.

A few recent mods......painted calipers Red with White lettering. Painted the side vents grey. Everything just stands out more I think, my grey calipers were not cutting it....

I’m very happy with the result, the red really brings out the calipers and surely makes it look more sporty.

Looks great! I particularly like how the red calipers pull the red from your wheel center caps - nicely done.

Yes, the Red just plays well with the rest, especially the center caps. The Grey vents seems to go well with the door decal too, overall I am happy with how it came out!
I am debating if I should paint the under the mirror area in Grey....then again, might also be too much Grey....I will post pics if I go for it.

Any update on the rear lower diffuser Flo?

Actually, yes...I just installed it yesterday and took it out of the garage to snap a few pics today - I love it. It's a mix of aftermarket / OEM in my opinion. Kind of like it's a factory "sport package" diffuser if you will. Not over the top, but enough to grab your attention.

Does the defuser serve any functionality or is just cosmetic. I would think that It might interfere with the Porsche design down force characteristics. Does look good though.

I get where you’re coming from, but I highly doubt it affects the downforce in a negative manner. If anything I think it would help. Nonetheless, I think if any testing were to be done before and after this diffuser, they would likely yield the same results. It’s not a big enough diffuser to truly change the characteristics of the car. And if it did, it would be at 180mph plus - don’t think many GTS owners will ever see MPH in these cars. FYI these fins line up exactly where the stock “fins” did, just more exaggerated.

Loos great and I agree, minimal if any impact on the down force - got details on it?

The front-end downforce being a little too light is the only problem I noticed when driving a GTS at full speed.

Thanks. Pricing depends on whether or not you want it to come unpainted or painted - I went with the painted route at $521, unpainted was $431. Fitment was spot on - mounted it using urethane adhesive that was provided via the seller.

I dealt with Omar if anyone is interested. Telling him that Flint sent you may help...They have a decent amount of Panamera add-on's and I assumed some of you guys may be interested.
