    When you press the check button it does a spoiler test last. I haven't looked but it probably raises it then.

    So that would be an easy way of getting a shot with the spoiler raised. Alternatively ur gonna have to go over 70 MPH and get some one to take a pic as u whiz buy, lol.

    Yeah, moveable rear wings are a big thing with the German car companies.

    The G wing is very cool. Not goofy boy-racer looking. If a car is designed properly from an aerodynamic standpoint, it doesn't need a ridiculous wing on the car.

    I thought it was clearly stated. Moveable wings are more prevalent in cars from Germany - ie. Porsche, VW, and Lamborghini. I didnt say that ONLY cars from Germany have moveable wings. Just an observation...

    i know the slr has got one thats used for braking, too. I think the reference to vw is the veyron which has a moveable wing.

    Yeah, and I suppose they forgot to put one on the Enzo and McLaren F1? Ferrari & McLaren must be dumbasses. Who knew.

    The VW W12 Nardo supercar has a rear spoiler which raises at over 120 km/h.

    So, does that mean they made a mistake with the normal versions of each car? I doubt it. You can get a substantial amount of aerodynamic downforce from a properly sculpted body and underside. F1 cars require them due to the lack of surface area on the body. Lack of surface area gives little help in downforce. Road cars on the other hand, if designed properly, should not require the wings. However, if a vehicle design does not have enough downforce to remain stable at high speed, then certainly a large wing should be considered and carefully engineered for stability. My point was that a properly design body & underside does not require a wing to make the car stable. I have driven the Murci at very close to top speed, and the car was incredibly solid. And the Murci has a similar spoiler to the Gallardo. Quite frankly, adding a spoiler to the Murci may in fact make the car less stable and unbalanced at high speed.

    I thought only ricers put wings on cars for looks? Hmmm. I'm not sure exactly why looks has anything to do with it. "Gee, let's slap on a wing to make it look cool."
