just added my aerokit II, full machine polish and sealant +wax.

planned mods: facelift rear bumper, Sport exhaust with the spyder 550 chrome tip, lowering 1 inch, maybe a nice rear spoiler ala Cayman.

Looks good I have the same bodywork done as you do. Nice choice with the GT3 Front and Side skirts.

Very nice!
Is that the stock suspension in EU or do you have it lowered?

Stock in EU looks already lower than the US stock. How much are you lowering it? With the skirts and the lip you may be getting too low, perhaps? Then again, you do have better roads in Europe.

kit is 1 inch, the skirts are not that low, but the bumper is!
We'll see what it gives with the kit,, otherwise I'll sell it.
But I think It would look really good 1inch lower!

Aero Kit Performance

The mods look very good, but is there any data as to what they do the aerodynamic performance of the car. Things more downforce, more slippery, better milage that sort of thing.

@edevlin

It just ads a little downforce on the frontaxel, so a little less downsteer, appart from this, nothing changed except the look ;-)

cool...and you didn't have to deamber the lights!

GT3 front bumper is the way to go. If you can find a GT3 Super Cup lip spoiler
it gives a nice racy edge. The silver hood crest looks nice too.
