    Got my first Ferrari, a 2009 GTB. The only extra seems larger rims. I want to track the car occasionally so thought a bit more downforce could be useful and came across the Novitech front lip, rear spoiler. What do you think? (Black top my car, gray top with spoiler example view. I think it looks quite clean, much better then Hamnan’s GT-R like rear spoiler).

    Looks pretty good as is. Why mess with her? Will make her harder to sell if you ever decide to do so.

    Nice.
    I would leave her like she is.
    Enjoy in good health!

    Beautiful as it is. It will be hard to improve such a beautiful design. Keep it.

    ...And most probably the aerodynamic performance gains will be negligible, if any.

    Enjoy it in good health!

    Agree with everyone. Leave as is. Love the black top and red interior.

    Thanks, all very good input with common view that 599 is beautiful as is.

    My target as mentioned is only functional for track use seeing the 599xx needed these front and rear aero bits. The spoiler follows the lines of 599, not really so bad my view, it is Novitech at the end.

    Anyway, I am getting the set for a fraction of what they really cost as I already committed to buy them. But will keep them aside and track few times without them at least.

    What is to do list in these cars? Keep all stock or do some upgrades for better performance/driveabilility? BMC filters, springs etc?

    I also have a right side window not tilting and glovebox not opening. Any views?

    No BMC ot K&N filters for me. Do not want oil upstream of the MAF sensors.

    If you want to upgrade her, installing an HGTE kit would give you the most bang for the buck. As a 2009, she can have all the components upgraded including the F1 TCU (85 ms shifting instead of 100 ms). Plus that will likely increase her value while non-factory mods decrease value. GTO wheels could also be a good investment. Fabio's 6-1 headers will add hp and sound like a GTO, too.
