    Well from that description you seem to have been dealt a bad hand, it will be interesting to hear what happens, suggest a calm approach but hold your ground, did the dealer do the PPI?

    Re: Deactivating Cayman 981 spoiler

    The GT4 bumper would surely do the trick, but if you do it completely it adds up fast, not sure where you are but then again if you are debating you probably new that! ;)
