    The Huge Spoiler on a HB thread

    some people like them, some people hate them. here are the choices a man has.

    Lets start from the practical ones - world rally car spec

    first choice - prodrive, not really a replica, a copy rather. Price? 4 of these cost the same a base wrx


    second choice - one of the Launsport (sometimes L'aunsport) ones. Same shape but probably in the 1500-2000 area.


    For both of these the oem spoiler will shrink to the size of the base 2.5i.
    Moving on.

    Ok, what if we want it flashier. Choice one - Varis. For like 2200 you get an adjustable wing and clear view in teh mirror.


    Choice two, dial down on the moneys - BlackTop Aero. Pretty much the same shape but for 600. Well they had to save on something, materials i guess.


    Lets go flashier - a doubledecker. Choice one - another Launsport piece. Maybe good at high speeds, but you might as well take the mirror down, you wont see much there.


    Choice two is two for a reason - Accolade spoiler, while keeping the upper deck the same changed the mid wing, so now it obstructs the rear wiper. What is logical i guess, if you dont use the window, why keep it clean.


    now lets calm down a bit.

    Crawford has one too, while being just a bit perkier than oem its quite rare. The STI from fast&furious4 was wearing one (at least some say that, others say that the whole body kit for that one was done by veilside)



    if u no like huge...

    There is an option for oem shape but in CF, Seibon and a few others.

    U vant rice? here, Voltex puts a skateboard back on the car.


    The same Varis also has this kinda simple-y one too



    thats all the choices really. discuss...

    cheers

    personally, not a fan of any of them. not even the one from WRC. that double decker one is horrendous as is the one above it. nice finds though. i didn't realize so many were available. i love my stock one!

    The smallish, stock lip spoiler on the back of my wagon doesn't offend me, but anything larger is a little too F&F for this old guy.

    Not a big fan of the shopping cart look.Unless it is functional & you are tracking the car or its a rally build.But other than the Prodrive which of these is actually functional?

    The Crawford looks good but I wouldn't spend money on a wing that looks very OEM.

    I initially thought those all looked disastrous so I avoided posting until I had a chance to think it over.

    Now that I've thought it over I like them less.

    For a car that is not concerned with homologation -- I'm not talking track days or autox or anything short of complete, to spec homologation -- these all look catastrophically bad when painted body colour. If left "CF" or bare or whatever they would be nothing short of a scourge, a true calamity.

    Crawford or stock wrapped in CF vinyl. The rest are little too over-the-top....literally.

    They are actually pretty hard to get a hold of. The guy with the b/w accolade (from the pic) was waiting like 10 month for his. And there are fitment issues always, top goes with the 4 oem screws and bottom needs to be improvised.


    Well, I as a wrc fan wouldn't say no to the blue/black prodrive one. The rest, meh.

    Ummmm... you have to take the initial cost, then add in the cost of tickets and aggravation that will come from being pulled over by just about every cop who spots the car. Might as well add the underbody neon, tint all the way around, get pink wheels and paint "F*** the Police" on the side of your ride.

    So, no ... I would not put any of them on a car. But if it's your taste ...
