Angry My new wing does not fit!

My WRC-style Rear Wing I got from Primitive Enterprises does not fit. There is over a 1/2 inch gap thru the center of the trunk.

Has anyone else had this problem?

Just for a joke I laied it on the trunk of my girlfriends 1997 Honda Accord an it fits the curve of the trunk PERFECT!! I mean it looks like it's for a Honda!! Sorry for saying the "H" word on this forum.

Please help. Haven't got a reply from Primitive yet.

Yo David,

I was going to order that wing! He had two left and he sold them in no time. Paul promised me that there was not going to be any problems with it and now, I think I will pass and take the next best offer since it seems he can't back up his word.
That really sucks for you man!
I guess, you should be intitled to get another wing! I emailed other i club members who got their WRC wings from primitive and they said they had no problem and they were encouraging me to go buy the wing from paul.

Good luck
CS

I'm sure it's for a Honda. Not a gap over the thickness of paper anywhere between the wing and the trunk on the Honda.

When on the Impreza you could roll a marble under it and theres no way you could pull it flush with the center of the trunk with the eight screws provided.

Anyone need a WRC Wing for a Honda?

Talked to Paul at Primitive Ent. He said it must be a fluke. He is getting a new shipment in at the end of the month and he'll send me a new one. He said he has never had this problem before.

But with me I alway get the defective part of the bunch. Took me 4 cars to get a new Impreza.

1st one, I went to pick it up and there were scratches on every panel.

2nd one, was perfect but 2 blocks frome the dealer to pick it up and the lot boy put a 3 foot long dent/scrape in the door and quarter panel.

3rd. one, the day I was to pick it up they found out it was a factory order for someone else.

4th. one, OK

It's not for a Honda, it was just formed incorrectly and made it through quality control somehow.

Yeh, Paul said the part number was for the Impreza. But instead of tossing it, it could go on a Honda. Looks pretty good too.

David:

Is this the new primitive wing with the third stop brake light in the bottom?, I live so far away, I waiting mine for the next week and it will be a nightmare if I got the same trouble, I ask this because primitive was selling in the past a WRC style wing with no brake light and now they are offering with it, the one I ordered..

Thanks

Paul at Primitive said that this is the only one that has had this problem. It does have the 3rd. light.

Talked to someone today with the same wing and it fits very good.

Thanks David...

How does this wing look like? I mean it`s exactly the one at primitive site in the blue impreza with yellow stickers?, I ask these because that one looks like the Ver.5, you know two parts, and the WRC and 22b wings are a little bit diferent only one piece, can you tell me please, and how tall is it? very tall as ver 5 or 6?
