Do I drive with the Aero spoiler up?

Just out of curiosity, how many of us drive with the Aero activated?

'Aero' (with the rear spoiler slightly lifted) can only be achieved when the driver chooses to select the 'Active' mode.

McLaren literature states that this feature results in a 20% increase in down-force but top speed can only be achieved if the spoiler is at it lowest (normal setting).

When activated, the spoiler does partially obstructs the view in the rear view mirror.:(

I only activate aero when I'm on a track or in a canyon. Any other time it's just wasting gas and blocking the rear view.

always on track for sure...and then depends on the mood... if going for it I will have it up, otherwise I normally forget to,... do think it looks quite cool though.

Normal traffic never. No need to show off.

Never use the Aero in normal driving. But have raised it in the rain. Although I have never had any traction issues of any kind, the prospect of 600+HP in the rain has led me to imagine it couldn't hurt to have a little extra downforce in wet conditions. Any one else do the same?
