OMGHi2U v5 WING

I am thinking of getting rid of my v5 rear wing and going with something more suttle. Any suggestions?

Wingless.
Stock RS coupe wing.
S202 carbon fiber wing.

BTW, I'm guessing this is going on a 98-01 Impreza?

Wingless is popular. Depends on what you drive, and what your personal preference is. What color is your wing?

My car and wing are silver with LED brake light. I can email some pics if you like. Does anyone know where I could find some pics?

Stock coupe wing is always good. Doesn't keep the car as planted on the highway or in really windy conditions though.

I am having a tough time so far finding one. I spook to the car owner and the site that he had purchased it from no longer carries it. So far only one place lists it. I guess I'll call them tomorrow.

Dave at Garage Five should be able to get Bomex stuff. There are 2 types of Bomex rear spoilers so make sure you order the right one.

Moon: Message me with how much Dave quotes you for the Bomex. I shouldn't have a problem slightly beating it. I don't work until Thursday but I'll try my best.

I will PM you. I am thinking of selling any performance mods that I have and just concentrating on handling and looks as this car will never really get any significant gains.

In the left hand menu go down to Do-Luck GC-8. I kinda dig those wings too for some odd reason.

heh I am considering a Bomex wing at some point also. I saw the pics of that members car a few months ago and loved the look. I dont like the rear end of the GM6....the rear bumper is sorta high compared to the front and it looks off to me.
