Thanks buddy 😁 It was an 8 week delivery, tiniest chip on the underside but the weave is awesome and unflawed and the clear coat seems super stting and crisp too, so very happy.

Fitment-wise it took me all of 5 minutes to install with external 3m body tape that is rock solid and holds my weight. Main thing was getting all the previous gunk off!!

If anyone needs a chrome trunk strip for cheap let me know

Ok, I just saw a blue Panamera locally and he had it painted to match with part of the carbon showing on the bottom.

I could not believe how that spoiler transforms the back of that car. It just looses that entire awkward look to the back end.

Looks great!

Thanks everyone. Super happy with it! Changes the look and makes it pop way better on the back end, I think!

The body color/carbon mix paint job sounds cool!

Sourced it from Mr China (company is called mcarcar I think. They also did my carbon fender vents 😊

Cost $490 if I remember correctly?

I havent got a video of it at speed yet, but I layered it with 2 lines of 3m exterior panel adhesive tape on each 4 sides and no joke - it holds my weight, so doubt it will be affected much at speed.

If anyone wants the link to the shop I got it from just let me know!

sorry, poor wording, how does it effect the handling of the car at speed - always a bit concerned about adding aerodynamic after market devices

Ahh gotcha. I haven't taken it above 50 yet but will be hitting the highway tomorrow so will let you know. Because of the flatter ducktail nature, I don't think it will add a ton of downforce just change airflow slightly.

It's more about the looks for me. Plus, let's face it - didn't do green wheels because I want to stay discreet 😂

Looks really good. I have what looks to be the exact same spoiler on my 4S which I bought from Vorstiener at about triple the price��. Oh well, anyway it is amazing how much it changes the look of the car. It took a car I always was sort of ambivalent about looks wise and turned it into a car I really like the looks of. The spoiler doesn’t change the aerodynamics that I could tell but as an FYI, the spoiler if left in the sunlight on a hot day will lift because the tape gets warm and the air trapped in the spoiler ( it’s completely sealed on mine) expands and pushes against the deck lid which causes the spoiler to lift. This has happened to me twice in the 2 plus years i’ve had the spoiler on the car. I figured this out this time but fortunately when I got it out of the sun it sucked back down into place. The next time this happens i’m going to remove it (which is a *****) and drill a couple of holes in the underside so the air can escape when it expands in the heat.

Yeh, I loved the look of the Vorsteiner one but they stopped making that kit so took a risk on this one and it paid off 😁

Funny you mention the tape popping though! Happened to me today in the sun so I may also do what youre suggesting!

It's about the first time since owning it that I am actually cool with the stock spoiler being in its retracted position because the ducktail just finishes the car nicely 😊
