I'm a big fan of wings, so I recon the wing...

For some reason the majority of people don't like wings :oops: , personally recon it just finishes it off but each to their own.

Well if you take it off and decide later it looks better on, you can always put it back on later anyway

One thing i noticed with my car when i lost the wing was its harder to judge when reversing because of the shape of the boot, thats the only down side. The up side is the boot stopped leaking and it looks 100x better.

keep the wing on there. I am not a fan of wings but it gives the finishing touch to things like fairmonts and XR's.

My mate has one on the monty and i seen a monty without it and i think it really makes a difference.

I like the GLi and futura without the wing cause it makes it look lower.

Glen------- if u learn how to drive and know where your car is then u can judge that stuff instead of relying on the spoiler. :)

yeah the AUs are like that, cause of the sloping boot.
BA's the same to a lesser extent, the massive C pillars don't help when reversing.
No spoiler, those little spoilers are s**t anyway.
They look heaps cleaner without one.

What steady ED said. Stomper i've never backed into anything before, i can judge distance behind my car but it is definately harder to do it without the wing due to the sloping bootlid, you can't see where it ends. If i was that s**t, i'd install a towbar like mitch_anderson did :twisted:
