[EXTERIOR] Wings - Cost and Function
How much does a wing cost? We've seen them for about $250-$580, painted and with a complete installation.

Even though the wing is mostly a cosmetic item, at speeds over 60 MPH it actually makes a "slight "difference in performance. Because the wing is usually not adjustable, it's not too useful in a racing situation.

What a rear wing is supposed to do is keep the rear end down in quick high speed turns (at the expense of a getting little more wind drag).

Many people crash on freeways when they cut someone off at 80 MPH with a "quick" turn... they spin out. A wing aids in keeping the rear end down at high speeds. Unless you're making quick "snap turns" at over 80 MPH, the wing issue is purely cosmetic.

wings will help in adverse weather conditions at speed, allowing the vehicle to be pushed down on the road

good explanation. personally i think that the wing is a piece, because high speeds in a florida rainstorm actually has taken the clearcoat off of my wing (in conjunction with sun damage i'm sure)

I have just purchased myself the Kaminri Body Kit for my GTS and I already have the stock wing that comes with the car. I was wondering if anyone that may read this has seen any nice wings that look good with this kit. I am just trying to stay away from that whole rediculous wing look.

The Kaminari wing compliments the Kaminari body kit just fine...

or since you are asking for a wing, but really don't want one wtf - just go wingless thumbsup
