    Why do I need an electronic spoiler button??

    Went to look at my new car yesterday and it was sat happily awaiting my in the OPC car park.

    When they gave me the keys to have a look inside, I was surprised to see that it has a button to raise/lower the spoiler.

    The car has an Aerokit. Fitted by Porsche, less than 2 weeks ago. So I don't need this button. It is unnecessary clutter. Why do they leave it in? Is this normal Porsche behaviour? I thought they paid attention to the small details?

    ...Add

    P.S. Is this button suitable to use to connect to the PSE vacuum pump thingie? (Maybe it could be useful after all!?)

    I guess they figure if the customer wants superfluous spoilers and whatnot on his car, he'll likely enjoy some superfluous buttons as well!!!

    (Sorry, I couldn't resist.... )

    I asked my salesman the same question, why do I need this button? His reply was "If I want to dry that area in the opened spoiler 'up' position (after the car is washed), I can..."

    Gives you an allibi for the cops. They know that it automatically raises when you've exceeded the speed limit. However, SINCE you have a button, you can state that you always "turn it on" when you get on the freeway.
    Brilliant!

    For me, this is the winner.

    It allows you to lift it after waxing so you can wipe off excess wax and don't get white wax film in the joints.

    His car has an aerokit, so a fixed wing. The button is useless on his car. Probably cheaper for Porsche to leave it there at the factory anyway.

    You can not use this button to do the PSE mod as this one works by impulsion, and for the PSE mod you need to instal abutton that cuts the electricity circuit completly...
