Default Driving with the wing up. No shame.

How about another thread thats sure to stir the pot?

Who drives with their wing up? I do it all the time now and even PARK with it up.. I know this upsets many 911 owners and enthusiasts. Even random spiteful car guys.

You know what? Its deployed early and often on the .2 and it actually looks so much better.

I couldn't do it in a 992 with the clamshell rear

I think it looks great extended! I don't do it often, but once in a while I will drive with it up.

I can't see it when it's up, so I just let it do its dance on auto.

There's absolutely no shame in it, but I also think the 911 looks really bad with the wing up.

It's neat you can see it when up in the rearview if the sunroof is other than stowed. Bravo for stirring things up. You paid a fortune, don't be deprived.

You can JUST barely see the top if you crack the sunroof open. Apparently it extends a bit further if the sunroof isn't closed.

I can see it a little bit even with the roof closed. Must have my driver's seat too high up

Here's how I do my "pre-flight" check.

Mine is always in auto, but in South Texas it is always up, It is hard to keep it under 75 out in the middle of no where.

Its actually a spoiler not a wing. Big difference. Just saying.

I do something even more egregious with my spoiler. If there is a pretty girl behind me at a stoplight, I put it up and down twice in quick succession. Sometimes I get a thumbs up....sometimes a mouth drop or smile. LOL
