Speedy, I'm afraid you're mistaken.

The Aero-Kit on this Carrera is optional from the factory and meant for the Carrera. It's been derived from the pre-facelift 997 type 911 GT3.

The Aero-Kit consists of the GT3-style front-bumper and the GT3 style rear-wing.

The Turbo also gets an optional Aero-Kit but it's completely different from this. The bumper on the turbo remains unchanged but you get a 'whale-tail' instead. Here are pictures that may help illustrate the difference:

Suhaas unfortunately for you, i am not wrong. This car has seen 3 owners in the past and when she first arrived to our shores she was bare backed. The second owner painted the wheels and installed the rear wing. I know where he got it from too and let me tell you its not from the Factory. If i remember right this car had been through an accident also and fixed up and sold.

Isn't this the ex-A.P car ? Had seen it ages back at Haji Ali, it didn't have a spoiler then. If i remember correctly, it had an accident some days before one of the earlier edition of the Supercar Rally.

All the exotics fly towards VJA Highway (NH9).

Saw many exotics flying low towards NH9 and the only high profilic place I can see is Ramoji Film City. I guess, these were enroute to RFC.

Saw the following fly on the Dilsukh Nagar - NH9 route.

A GA07 regd Black Mercedes E350 Cabrio
White JH regd Range Rover Evoque
AP16 regd Black BMW Z4
AP09 regd White R8 v10 Spyder

These were the ones I saw, while I was on the way back home.

I'm sure you know the history behind the car Speedy, that's something I'm not aware of. What I was trying to say is that this particular wing was never called the 'Turbo-Aero-Kit' and it was never on the Turbo. It was found on the GT3 and was also available from the factory as an optional-extra.

Suhaas at Porsche the GT3 wing was never an optional extra provided by the company. The customer had to buy the wing seperately and the factory would not fit it and send the car to you, its all done after market. The Aero kit for the carrera and the turbo are a fixed set of goodies that cannot be altered or made changes too.

The S600 has just had her electrical gremlins sorted and she has regained her oldself. She now is a pleasure to drive, but yet has things to be refurbished.
