Just got the Aerokit cup spoiler as a present and now having a tough time trying to find an installer. Dealerships said I need to go to a body shop and I am trying to find a good body shop who knows how to do this. sigh...

You could enter your zip code here and look for a certified Porsche Collision Center - they might be able to help you.

Appreciate it! Let me check them out. What's a decent price you guys think? I only need installation of the rear. It is already painted.

Did you try Jack Daniels MotorSports Division.

They might take on this project.

Plus it is associated with the Porsche Dealership so all work is under warranty. They did some custom work on my Porsche and Audi Vehicles.

Contact Frank, he is in charge.

Be sure to let us know how it all turns out.

The costly part is the painting. I would not pay more than a few hundred to do the install. You will need to do a program mod so you don't get error codes from disconnecting the old spoiler motor. Porsche also recommends that you reprogram your sunroof when you put the Aerokit wing on. It requires a new module. I did not do this and my dealer said it was not necessary. I don't drive 150 mph with the sunroof open.

Thanks! Got a great friend to have it painted so all done there. Just asking around the shops and dealership to see if anyone can install it for me. I also have the extra module for the sunroof and that requires removing the passenger seat so I am sure it will cost me on that one too. I looked over the directions and it isn't as daunting but it points to 8 different manuals on how to remove the current parts of the car. That's where I will struggle since removing the seat I am afraid of triggering the airbag and removing clips from the engine cover, I fear I will break those clips. 😢

What do you mean by program mod?

There's a module that you need to install that is related to the sunroof. Without the new spoiler, the sunroof speaks to the oem wing that will tilt up more if sunroof is open. Installing the new aero spoiler, I think the new module for the sunroof is required because it needs to tell the sunroof to operate a certain way so the air flow is optimal? I am just guessing but i purchased the module for $100 from suncoast. And then the reprogramming is more about telling the computer that there is a fixed wing now and no longer require the automatic lifting for the oem wing.

Do yourself a favor during the install and disconnect the lifting motor once it's down. (Don't ask me how I know)

Most definitely. That's what the reprogramming is for but I guess if I am doing it myself somehow, I must drive it to a dealership to have it program so I will have to remove a fuse for the wing first. Haha

When you disconnect the spoiler I assume an error light pops up somewhere. Can you clear the error yourself somehow or do you have to take it to Porsche to have it reprogrammed? That's what I asking when Penn4S said "you need to do a program mod" I was thinking maybe there was a way to do it yourself and avoid the dealer.
