Default Perring wing risers, worth?

http://perrinperformance.com/i-13324...hatchback.html

So I saw these and I really, really like how they make the car look, to me it gives it a more aggressive look I think.

My question is to those who have them, are they worth it? Mainly wanna grab em because I like how they look, do they derail performance at all? are they sturdy? any problems with em?

edit: I will not be getting them, thanks guys but the reduced movement is not negotiable for me as I stand at almost 6'4" and need the trunk area a lot.

I installed these on my car and I love the look! I haven't noticed any problems with them. The only thing is during the install I snapped of a couple of bolts that had a ridiculous amount of loctite on them. If I were to do it again I would probably try using a soldering iron to heat up the bolts and loosen the loctite before I tried removing the nuts. Though, you don't notice the broken bolts on mine unless you look very closely.

It does limit the amount you can open your hatch depending on how you set it up. I have mine lifted fairly high and tilted as far forward as I can and I can still open my hatch almost completely (I have it set a little safe just in case).

Also, I used black plasti dip on the bottom of the wing since it wasn't completely painted from the factory.

Hope that helps!

Worth it is a HORRIBLE question you know. If you cannot justify spending the money on them, then don't.

I don't think hatchpride's issue is money as opposed to functionality and quality of product

I don't think it's worth it cause Perrin wont redesign the thing to allow full hatch openings. I held off buying it because it wont allow me to open my hatch.

Eh for the price and hearing the install can be a hassle
I'd rather get this spoiler extension or the black aero wing

I debated getting these and I'm glad I went the carbon fiber spoiler route instead. On my OE spoiler I snapped the two center spoiler bolts due to blue locktite on the threads (Perrin's video makes ZERO mention of this fact) which makes the spoiler no longer safe to secure with just the two outer bolts and push clips.

It's all preference isn't it? For me, it wouldn't be because I am not big on wings nor care about them. For you it might be worth it. All depends on what you think.

That's what I have, was hoping to combo that with the risers to get the backyard special going on.

You can actually get the wing risers to work and allow full opening of the hatch, perrin just doesn't mention anything about it, I have them on mine with no cables to stop it from opening 100%, to do this use 4 spacers on the center support posts and 3 spacers on the outer support posts, combine that with pushing the wing back as for as it will go and it will clear the roof by about a 1/4"

^^^ The wing's fitment was less than stellar, I had to sand it down to get it to sit flush to the actual spoiler. Other than that, I wish they supplied the double sided tape. Looks good on the car.


^^^^^^^^ I did buy a perrin wing riser kit and did every possible thing I could with the kit to get it to work but it somehow clips the edge every time at the best. I couldve sanded down my spoiler a hair but wasnt worth it imo. I've notice some people get lucky and others than do the exact same and it didnt work.
