Wow Congrat's on the new ride ! I would hang on to the wing to. If you go back to no Aero front end then dropping the wing makes sense . The wheels are Awesome . Easy with a new car to want to add and change but best to put some money in driving skill training what is stock with these Magnificent machines . They are set up to perform far beyond our basic skills .

I will say that although the wing is a personal choice, you might want to consider leaving it on, since now you have a full aerokit car. Also, even though you may not be driving at high speeds where the aerodynamics from the front bumper and rear wing take effect, having the front bumper on and the rear without the wing may possibly throw it off. Like I said, it's a personal preference and your car...rock what you wanna rock on it! I did the aero front bumper and turbo rear decklid to balance it out on mine.
Thank you Ditchhanger ! Thatís one of the reasons why Iíve been 50/50 about it since itís best to have both on. I love the turbo wing. I was looking at a oem turbo rear decklid but the owner got my offer confused for his Turbo wheels. By the time he realized someone purchased the turbo wing on EBay

I love Lobster Forks but have to say your wheels look great!
I assume you have a parking spot in a garage living in NYC? Not good car to leave out on street.

I got mine through LA Dismantlers...you could give them a call and see if they have any in inventory. They come up from time to time.

Congrats, enjoy in good health! Recommend to join the local PCA group they have great driving events that I remember when I was in NY. Also, search for bear mountain fun roads and the link https://goo.gl/maps/PPtEMrbETv22

Lovely, and I applaud using the ample space available on the roof! Try taking it for a trip to IKEA or something else that's bulky but not too heavy. I used to get the weirdest looks driving back with a few shelves on top...

Wow I applaud you! I would be a little nervous having a box of furniture on top and securing it in place.

Im in love with that stance and look. Love that Porsche's can look so good on springs and wheels. That front bumper sets it off!

Hi and welcome OP! Great looking car! I saw you said that you have joined the PCA,where are you located? Wife and I both have 911's, and have done many of the "coffee run" drives in and around our area, including the one to Bear Mtn. We are in Stamford CT, so part of the CT valley PCA.

Also, there is an amazing show/gathering here in New Canaan, several times a year (if you feel like cruising up). Very large , and diverse attendance, with a huge Porsche crowd as well.

Cheers!

Bryan
