    Spoiler vibration

    Hey guys

    I was out driving at the weekend along a local motorway section when I came up behind a new black Carrera coupe. I pulled in behind for a while to admire the rear profile on the move, something which I don't often get to see.

    Anyway, in pulling in behind him (travelling 70>40mph as we both turned off) I noticed that the rubber section under the raised rear spoiler was really vibrating, especially the top 'fold'. It was moving a few inches up and down which made the spoiler look really cheap and tacky.



    So my question is: has anyone else noticed this before? Ie. do we all have this 'feature' or should the driver in question be heading down to the nearest OPC?

    Something must have come lose, while I can not see the back of my car I have been behind 997S's doing 100 mph + and did not see such a thing.

    That filler section is not stiff, and I'm not surprized that it is moving around at speed. I doubt that anything came off,--it's just a filler panel.

    I agree. I've noticed a vibration or turbulence in my car when I first put it on the highway. I made my dealer aware of this but we never got around to checking it out. I just chalk it up to turbulence around the spoiler. Since then, I've only noticed it a few times and now have about 6800 kms on my car.

    They do move about a bit depending upon the speed. I noticed the same thing. Mind you it was more of a wobble than a bounce....
