DILEMMA!

rear EL GT wing to go with the rest of kit or spoilerless.

currently have standard rear wing>>>EF GLI
and it looks out of place with the GT rear bar.

I have the GT rear bar without a spoiler.

I honestly think that the GT wing only looks good on these if there is something on the bonnet to "balance" it. Either the GT or some other nice looking scoop or.... :) a bulge ... *drool*

See what you think...

maybe try the tickford xr wing. its bigger than the stock gli spec wing, but smaller that the gt wing. Still good and chunky but not over the top like the gt wing.

"I like big butts and I cannot lie"

But seriously... I love the look of the fat a*** with no spoiler.

If not then definitely the GT wing as it's really the only wing that suites the kit IMO.

What I'd really love to do is make/find myself a nice bootlip spoiler. Similar (but not as showy) as the ones that come as part of the Lexus LS400 VIP body kit...

no pics til the outside of the car is complete :)

i think the rear spoiler will complement the look of the car.

now im in the dilemma for the bonnet scoop. dont want something over dramatic bt dont want a pissy little one.
