Hi all,

A question for all 964 owners - at what speed does the rear spoiler on your car come up? Mine does at 57 mph.

I seem to remember reading the original press reports and the figure of 37 mph sticks in my mind (50 kph), in that one journalist thought this was an absolute giveaway to the traffic cops...

I could off course remove myself from the sofa and look this up in the owners manual, but I seem to be welded on !

Does anyone have the answer?

Cheers

John.

Sorry - the point to this question is I think my spolier should be coming up at a lower speed...

if you still wanna know...i have a 1991 C2 964 and the manual says 80odd kph or 50-57mph. then down at around 7mph . The important thing is that it goes up...appart from helping the rear end stay on the ground at speed it also vents the engine and prevents overheating.



i'm all very new to this having only owned the lady for 4 days!

Glynmun,

Welcome to the forum. It is customary to post pictures of your pride and joy, although we will let you off until spring when you can get some sun reflecting off polished metal shots.

Daz one of our admins will be happy, another owner in South Wales.

It'd be great to see daz on the road. I haven't passed any porkers yet apart from the occasional Boxster!

I'v only just sold a celica...mistakenly thought it was quick...gosh for a pretty looking car the 964 is fast!

I'll stick a pick on when i've washed it and when the flippin sun comes out (if it ever will properly).

Using the car every day until i can afford a cheap run around!

Got to get the badly made demister working...freezing my hairy clock weights off at the mo!

I used a antimist wipe on the inside of my windows and it has worked amazingly. I got it free with some magazine. I hadn't even thought about whether it was working or not untill I noticed one of my side winows was all misted up where I had not wiped!

Okay in extreme circumstances it still mists up, but it's 75% better than it was.

Welcome Glyn,
