      Just looking for some opinions on rear spoilers and wondering what some of you think about these
      http://www.wingswest.com/catalog/Vol...-Mid-Wing.html
      I have notice that I dont see to many of these on the R's. I like the look of both wings on the back matched with a set of staggered wheels would look great. IMO
      TIA

      Looks good. They probably come with a coat of primer so you don't even have to paint it if the primer is close enough.

      I like the wide body on this one. Pretty good stance

      Don't get me wrong...I like the old school mid hatch GTI spoiler look...but that thing is tacky as h*** in my opinion. But hey...it's your ride man...roll it how you like it.
      Anyone got a spare R32 front clip laying around...I got a Ferrari that needs a facelift!

      If your R could speak, it would politely ask you to not adhere an ugly hunk of Chinese ABS to its ass.

      The UK guys are probably appalled by our bad grammar more than anything else.

      Many people enjoy eating apples and oranges, but in the end they are still… just apples and oranges. The R32 is passion fruit. . Live Long and Prosper.

      Looks aside, I wouldn't mind having a FUNCTIONAL rear wing or spoiler for the track. The car seems a bit light on high speed sweepers. I think a functional front splitter and some rear down force might help. The rear is also pretty jittery at brake onset when stopping from high speeds, some real rear down force might help that as well.

      You need to sort the height of the car/under floor which does nothing to help the downforce.

      so...opinions on the aesthetics, aerodynamic efficiency and regurgitative effects of the spoiler in question seem to be unanimous
