I think the wing looks fantastic and have nothing but praise for what you've done. But how do you know what the effect on handling will be, especially at higher speeds? Those wings are meant to effect handling, and they definitely do, but do you have any idea how, short of taking out and driving her really fast?

Its about 75 pounds of downforce. Nothing too crazy.

I honestly dont know the effect, but the car is driven 99% under 75 mph. Most ameteur including myself won't notice a thing. Ive never noticed a difference adding any aero at any speed to any of my cars. Its just for looks for me personally.

This comes with mountings and wing separately. For $150 USD shipped. Ill give some feedback once its arrive. I have tried a few China CF product before. They surprisingly getting good with fitment on body kit now. Since its a wing you dont even have to worry about it. Probably the clear coat gonna fade within 2 years when park outside. For $150 doe ???

The one problem you'll likely run into is the stanchions may hit the trunk at an angle that makes the spoiler extremely uneven (ie back part will be about 3 inches higher than the front) That is the reason i had to make my own. Im very interested in how your install goes.... please report back!

i am able to make the mountings line up with the trunk body lines. However, the wing angle is like 45 degrees. i just put on some 3m tape and drive around for 2 days and didnt like it much. Gave me quite a good idea of how high and positions of the mounting points i wanted, along with the length and width of the wing. I am currently sourcing a no drill bracket (SARD style for FRS) and a high quality CF wing. Worth $150 hahaha

What would happen if you put brackets on opposite sides then turned them around? Would that correct the 45 degree angle?

1. Its would look really weird
2. Still not gonna fix it as the mounting have an angle and the trunk its self as well. So its wont offset the 45 degrees angle in reverse. I tried hahah
