Phil, does it keep the battery in the Bovee charged up at the same time whilst it's in use?

Was lucky enough to get away for a break last week and left my car with 9 Excellence for the week so resolve a few small issues and paint my rear bar and exhaust tips in satin black GTS style to match my wheels and badges. Was really happy with the end result. I would highly recommend 9e to anyone who needs any work done. Adam was great with communication whilst I was away and their work was top notch.

Since getting my GTS in May I've had a lot on with work and hols so not managed to do much to the car let alone drive it but with a bit more free time I've managed a few purchases. Apologies for lumping them all together...

TPC DSC - a 5 minute fit and to me makes a big difference to ride compliance. I've not had a chance to play with the programming but may do in the future.

Ceramic coating - Gtechniq CS Black and Exo. I know some people doubt the efficacy of ceramic coatings but I'm liking it so far!

A carbon fibre Flying Ducktail rear spoiler (www.flyingducktail.com). Not one for the purists I think! Not sure about this one, it seemed like a good idea at the time. I still need to have it painted prior to fitting but will give it a go and see how it looks.

Zunport grill - I tried fitting and can't get it to fit, the instructions are terrible so I'm not sure if it's my incompetence or just a bad fit.

Finally some black rear badging... my car is basalt black so I'm wondering if the black will give a 'stealth' look. I'm not sure to go with the whole Carrera 4 GTS script or just GTS. Or perhaps is will just look naff! Sad

Some nice bits there Thumb re badge maybe 911 GTS or just GTS black is stealthy or Red looks good on black cars. , Zunsport I also don't love, I dont like the way they fit externally and you can see the edges much prefer rennline internal fix ones a bit more hassle to do as its bumper off but a better look imo.
that flying ducktail I thought looked nice when I first saw a pic of it. Thumb

Surprised by the Zunsport issue. I have them on my 997.1 and the one thing that I noticed was how well they fitted. Question

I would get in touch with them just in case it's a misfit/bad batch or something.

I do think looking at that photo of yours the black ones are far better than the silver ones you cannot see the outer frame as much. and the middle one I cant see any edge frame on that looks very good. Thumb

It may just be me. Perhaps I should have used a bit more force but I didn't want to damage the paintwork. Dont know
