I'd be willing to bet that the overpriced $200 rubber strip doesn't do so much as beans aerodynamically for the front end of the 911. Perhaps a *slight* change... Oh no!! Don't add a wing and no front strip they say!! Ever look at a Ruf Yellowbird...? Big old Carrera rear spoiler and the CTR front bumper...no rubber strip there...only thing marginally valuable that's been added to those is a narrow width adjustable aluminum piece under the bumper lip that can be tweaked up or down to *slightly* reduce lift...

O.k...coming down off my horse. I just don't see where other than aesthetics and looking nice (and I do like the look) it adds that much benefit. I'd spend the effort on better brakes or a good corner balance. I'm trying to move away from all the flimsy rubber pieces on my own car, put the used one on if you like the look...putting a spanky new one one is a waste of money IMO.

My 2 cents.
