Look forward to the installation and finished pics Thumb Make sure whoever paints it for you uses a good quality etch primer!

Did anybody by the Moshammer ducktail in the sale, or have one fitted?

How easy is it to disable the spoiler lift mechanism, as it looks like lifting these ducktails removes all rear window visibility?

Looking at the pics earlier on in the thread, I'd be surprised if it just pokes it's top edge onto view, much like the standard spoiler does when extended.
From my understanding, you swap the top out and leave the rest in place, then code out the spoiler deployment with a PIWIS

Yes Frank your right ,it a 15min job at the OPC to turn off the pop up spoiler. Then the new ducktail or any other pop up section replacement spoiler just fits in.

Thanks for the comments; going to seriously consider that during 2019. I like the way fitment is a 30min DIY job and easily fully reversible.

Sorry Chief, but it's not the "literal" definition at all. Yours is an inferred definition rather than the eponymous use of the term, spoiler.
As DR says, we're a broad church and I'm a fan of spoilers, splitters, and side skirts when done well.
I'm also a fan of the sleeper look, 911R or GT3 Touring as an example. Each to their own

FWIW I can confirm that the Foxwell NT520 diagnostic tool can disable the spoiler lift. Easy DIY if you don’t want to go to OPC

Any idea if it can disable PASM too? Might be a tool worth investing in Question

Hi Rob,

According to the attached functions list it can disable PASM and lots of other functions. BUT I have only confirmed that the spoiler lift can be disabled..and have not actually tested any other functions so buyer beware Wink. I'm a bit wary of trying out an unknown device for fear of disabling a major gateway or whatever.

Having said that I also have a function list prepared by someone else which appears to be based on some actual testing of the various other functions (on his car at least) and will also post that if you want.

Based on my admittedly limited comparison of the various other "low cost" tools out there (which accordingly does NOT include PIWIS and Durametric) this appears to be as good as it gets as far as I can tell.
