• CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19

    The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.

    If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

The Manthey GT3 wing is large but sits low and as such, is still fairly subtle when compared to the normal one.

Speaking purely on aesthetic terms, big wings need to be balanced out with ground effects. A larger wing placed on a non-aggressive looking car body creates too much of a park bench effect. Not that a GT3 isn’t an aggressive looking body, but larger and larger wings demand more and more wideness of body and other stuff like that

I have the 997 GT3 cup front spoiler on my GT3 and it’s a big, unsightly piece of plastic. I kind of regret installing it. If i were to install a huge naked carbon fiber wing on my rear deck, i would do an aggressive carbon front spoiler, side skirts, and perhaps even a diffuser.

Again, we’re speaking purely on aesthetic terms here. If anyone cares to argue aerodynamic benefits, we can do that too, but don’t @ this post :p
I’d get the Manthey wing painted to match OEM. The visual difference is subtle—in fact pretty sure most people would never notice.

You have to pair it with the Cup front lip. Don’t know how it looks on the 997, but on the 991, it is hard to tell apart from stock unless you look closely and know what to look for.

It’s not like people can actually see how tiny his penis really is, they’re just assuming it based on a vicious stereotype.

About Porsche owners. What did you think I meant?

Classic Foo. Shows up to pretend that his rhetorical question is a legitimate attempt to engage with people and then shouts down all responses and accuses anyone who disagree with his already-made-decision as being envious or his ability to purchase consumer goods.

The obvious answer is that you don't care what anyone thinks and will do what you decided already which apparently is to get a wing so that your car will theoretically be faster on a track you will never take it to and because you think it makes it look better.

If you had started out with a more earnest post you wouldn't be getting shit from people. Why don't you learn from @HRoi - he easily has the best stable in this thread and yet somehow manages to avoid whatever envy you perceive to exist. Perhaps because he's genuine?
I thought I was always 100% clear: no, I don’t give a shit what you or anyone else thinks about my car. When the fuck did I feign otherwise?

As for shouting down people who “disagree”? There can be no clearer proof of your personal spite/resentment than coloring the above comments as good faith disagreements.

Got me again! I am exactly as awful and pathetic a piece of human shit as you like to imagine! Sometimes life just works out that nicely I guess.

It’s this one, right? It looks very much like the 997 Cup lip and yeah...i think it’s unsightly. Can’t be too upset about that because it’s meant to be a $200-300 wear item...but as we get into aesthetic mods i think dat CF is needed

If you don't care what people think then what are you doing here? I didn't think this needed to be stated, but this is a forum where humans interact about topics of mutual interest. Maybe there are places out there for people to pose questions for people whom they don't wish to interact with and whose opinions they don't care to hear, but this is definitely not one of them.

In case it isn't 100% clear, I don't care what your answer is and am not feigning otherwise.

Any pictures of your current wing vs the new wing?
Would have to dig them up. The new one is almost twice the width, but is otherwise the same shape/form. Hence, when painted and installed, it would not be immediately obvious. I think it just lends to an overall more aggressive look, even if one can’t put his/her finger on why off the bat.

It’s this one, right? It looks very much like the 997 Cup lip and yeah...i think it’s unsightly. Can’t be too upset about that because it’s meant to be a $200-300 wear item...but as we get into aesthetic mods i think dat CF is needed

Yeah that’s it. But it looks virtually identical to stock. Your 997 does not have as much black plastic bits on the outside as the 991.2. The latter all have black plastic front lips. The Cup version is just slightly more prominent.

Suggesting a carbon fiber lip? Would never do that. As you say, it’s a wear item. Also, CF offers no benefit in such applications.

I also don’t like how it’s closer to the ground than the side rocker panels. Same as my 997. It’s like a Jay Leno chin. I’m just letting the thing get chewed up and go back to stock once it’s time to get replaced again.

Adding side skirts would make the lower body edge more uniform in shape and more lined up. Something like this TechArt kit, for example. I don’t like the stripes on the car, the wheels, or that weird cladding around the headlights, though.

What is WITH the microphallus shaming on this forum?

Foo will you need to get the manties wrapped/ceramically treated like the rest of your car?

you do realize you drive in the shit road of north east, is your new lip (to match your wing) going to be closer to ground (and the side skirt), you'd better clear wrap EVERYTHING then some more...

Comparison of stock wing with Manthey wing, and photo of someone else’s car who had it painted and installed.
