so as i went into the dealers today, i asked about the kit (and the wing) and as it seems, i was wrong. the car is shipped with either the stock or the big wing already installed. however, the kit is not sold seperately, so either you order it with the car, or you have to wait for an aftermarket "copy" to be developed.again, this is in Belgium (and possibly the rest of Europe). if you want to try and source it overseas, you might be able to get it

@ob1kxb thanks for checking on that. Oh well, you cannot have everything...at once
I will give myself some time with the oem wing and work/wait on replacement...

If you're looking for an aftermarket solution, then the Zele kit is probably your best bet.

I have collected my ginger interceptor on Saturday
The weather was crap, but still managed to have some fun...I absolutely love the automatic gearbox.
300 miles done, 700 to go

Yay! Another auto convert... try a superfast two/three gear paddle downchange, in sport mode, under braking ... it 'autoblips' down to the lowest gear, none ofyer intermediate blipping...!!

Just a quick update...one bumper scratch, windscreen chip and 2500 miles more on the clock later and I find thecar amazing. 10-12 hour drive a day, quick nap and I could not wait to seat behind the wheel again I have done some long runs with speeds over 100mph in Germany and was surprised how much confidence inspiring it is...high speed bends, emergency braking, the car puts you in control and gives feedback on what's going on.Now I am wondering what a difference would it be with the aero kit...

Automatic gearbox needs a section on its own Before I bought the car I thought that I will be driving mostly in manual mode, being in control and all that crap...but auto in sports mode, with on-demand paddle downshifts is all I really need, it does learn your acceleration patterns to some extend and works just great!

Now back to fixing scratches/chips, upgrade tyres and play Gran Turismo to memorize the Ring before I visit Germany again
