Nice! Please detail your impressions and experiences on road and track when you get the opportunity!

I'm really anxious to hear your experiences with this setup on the track. Sometimes, when I get over 115 mph, my Cayman feels a little lighter, which is mildly disconcerting. I don't think it is because there was a little rise in the middle of the straight, but more down force can't be a bad thing.

FWIW, at my local track, I can typically get to the mid 120s, approaching 130 on the longest straight. I can't say I noticed any lightness at those speeds.

So, where did you purchase the lower rear diffuser? It looks awesome! And did you install yourself or use a Indy shop or a Porsche dealer? Would love to add that to my 2018 Boxster S......
I got it from ebay, it's called the ML style. They're using my pic in their ad. If you can't find it let me know and I'll get you the info

Yes I installed it myself

I think it looks great and makes the car look aggressive

Is it really made from carbon fiber or is it plastic that looks like carbon fiber? And was the install difficult or did you have a hard time getting it to fit in place as expected? I am nervous about buying something like this from the other side of the world, then maybe having difficulty getting it to fit properly or having it crack/break under spirited driving.

It's real carbon fiber and I installed all the cf on my car. The rear diffuser is easy to install.

Now crack/break under spirited driving is pending on you, I can tell you I've been XXXmph and all is fine.

How's the fore/aft balance of the car working out? With the aggressive front lip I'm ordering, I'm thinking it will be fine with the ducktail and rear diffuser, but I'm hoping I don't introduce any understeer by having the rear overpower the front. If it does, I'll have to take lessons from a 911 driver. ;-)

Hard for me to tell as I went with new wheels which rear are 20x11" with 295/30. Car really feels planted now

Now that I have the APR tune with the MBC air filter & Fabspeed speed exhaust I can break lose the 295 tires

I've gone on a few high speed test and can tell you the car does great
