Hi all, don't know if anyone has a had any experience of these small issues but have a agreed a deal on my firs 9911 c2s pending 111 point opc check and warranty extension...had a good test drive in the car at weekend and am now chomping at the bit but wanted advice on two things.....1) when checking out the rear spoiler operated ok; upon pressing the button to elevate the spoiler it rose smoothly and squeaked free but upon the lowering it juddered quite violently but eventually got there ...surely this cant be right...minor fix ?
2) On test drive everything about the car felt great just that at 70mph there was a very high frequency buzz ( not wheel shake more of a high speed vibration/buzz)through the steering wheel...smooth as silk up to 70...? Any advice would be great...thanks

The lifting mechanism for the spoiler needs a regular spray of silicone so that all moving parts are kept smooth. I spray twice yearly but perhaps should do more frequently.

If your car is going through the 111 check, ask them to test drive the car with you so you can point it out to the technician.
