I can't tell you specifics about the Zero Sports wing. I work in a body shop here in northern California and every replica part (read: non-OEM) has been of a lower quality build than its OEM counterpart. So if you really want that wing design, you'd probably be best shelling out a little extra money and buying the stock part.

well I'm sure it's not as good as the Zero Sports wing but the price differance is $200.00 vrs $1100.00, so I'm just wondering what kind of quality issues there are, like will it start flapping up and down a 40mph? Or not fit? Or just burst into flames for no appernt reason?

they're cheap. i ordered one, and when i got it, it was cracked in two places, so i sent it back and it came broke again! i thought third would be a charm but nope, broke again. and as for me, i just went with a wingless carbon fiber trunk
