Default Thinking of going wingless, what do you guys think??

I have thought about possibly getting a carbon fiber trunk and painting it to match. Or should I leave the wing??

if you ditch the wing, the car will look bottom heavy.

i'd keep it for sure...or possibly upgrade to a different STi-style wing.

why would you paint the carbon fiber to match, does a carbon fiber trunk honestly save that much weight that you're gettin it purely for that aspect? most people get carbon fiber pieces for either a. weight saving, b. looks, c. both if you're goin to be paintin it back to stock looks it better save some serious weight to not want to show off the beauty of carbon fiber

I wouldn't be getting it for the weight aspect. but because you can get them without the key hole and i could save my trunk if i ever wanted to put it back on later. I do like how carbon fiber looks but then i would need a hood to match.

I think you don't need the wing for the same reason, I think wingless would even things out. Take off the wing and check it out!
