Presenting the lower priced, injection-molded AWE Tuning Foiler™ Wind Diffuser. The simple, elegant solution to wind buffeting in Porsche 718/981/991s.



  • The elegant solution for Porsche 718/981/991 wind buffeting
  • UV stabilized injection-molded plastic for the perfect OE-style look
  • Combats buffeting, both on the track and the street
  • Allows for “single window” down driving without buffeting
  • Perfect OE-like fitment
  • Simple, quick installation
  • Includes driver’s side and passenger side fitments









What’s wind buffeting?


You know that sound that happens when your window is down at speed that makes it feel like your head is going to implode? That’s called wind buffeting. It happens when you’re moving fast, and it’s quite the issue on the newest generation of Porsche Boxster/Cayman and 911. So instead of just letting our brains melt under the pressure, we did something about it.


Porsche design


The AWE Tuning Foiler™ Wind Diffuser boasts an unobtrusive yet elegant design. Crafted from UV stabilized injection-molded plastic, the Foiler™ Wind Diffuser complements Porsche styling without calling unwanted attention. Installation is a breeze with AWE Tuning’s user-friendly, bolt-on design.


Passenger and driver’s side Foiler™ Wind Diffuser included, as well as all hardware needed for installation.


Roll down your window and wave goodbye to wind buffeting.

Installed a set of these couple weeks ago on my 718 Cayman. Reduces buffeting and wind noise significantly and looks oem... 2 thumbs up !!

No problems like this with the Boxster. The buffetting drives me nuts on the TT-RS. Haven't noticed it being so bad on a 911.

As did I (weekend before last); they work great. They're almost as imperative a mod as the clear front side markers are, IMHO.

A couple of suggestions for @Josh/AWE : The macaroni-shaped adaptors that need to be installed for 718/late 981 models don't mate to the foils solidly; the adapters' alignment has to be constantly adjusted for the install to go smoothly. Also, I received T15 Torx screws in my package instead of the #2 Philips screws described in the instructions; no biggie there for me, but it may be for someone who doesn't have a Torx driver set.

Just installed these and they're great! I thought the normal car was pretty good compared to other cars I've driven, but with these, you get completely smooth air even at highway speeds! I'd highly recommend them for the price!

Just 1 thing, my passenger side one doesn't really seem to sit flush with the body completely. Driver side is perfect. Going to take it apart tomorrow and check again.

This is on a Cayman if you were wondering.

Glad you're liking them. I am a bit confused on the above bolded text, though, as our installation instruction only note "tools needed" - Flat trim removal tool, Phillips head screwdriver, T-15, T-20 & T-30 Torx bits, 10mm wrench.

Does this work with or adversely affect cars with LCA?

What's LCA? Lower control arms? If so, the two are unrelated.
