Bat's™ New Wing!

I really like my new Kaminari Race Wing with Carbon Fiber Insert:). Although, there are a few things I wasn't too thrilled about. Upon receiving my wing, I noticed that a lot of prep work would need to be done in order to get the wing looking just right. The Carbon Fiber centerpiece in particular, had a few scratches in it. Not what I would expect from Kaminari. The edges were pretty rough too. The end pieces were in pretty good shape. I had the centerpiece edges painted to match my Spec Blue, instead of black. The end result was very nice. The clearcoat seemed to hide some of the scratches on the centerpiece, though some were still visible. Fitment was okay, although the base didn't sit exactly flat on the hatch, it still looked good. Today I noticed some rattling from the wing. Not too sure were it's coming from, but I'll check it out. Overall, I give the Kaminari Race Wing an 8 out of 10. Enjoy the PICS;).

BTW-I'll be posting PICS of my Overlay for the endcaps of this wing this week;).

I also have a rattling noise that may be coming from the right side, where the centerpiece meets the right support. There's alittle play in there, so I may just tighten it up a bit. I have a foam insert sandwiched between the base and the hatch also, to prevent any rattling there and to absorb the shock when shutting the hatch.

One thing I also wanted to mention is the right base overhang hits the car when shutting the hatch. It's put a small indentation underneath the right support, but nothing serious. Fitment IMO, isn't perfect, that's why I gave a score of 8 out of 10. Anyone with this wing experience the same problem?

i have slight paint chips in the same area on the wing that you do bat... but no problems with the actual trunk corners.

when I was detailing my car on monday, i noticed this and was like, "wow, how the heck did that happen!?" it doesnt touch anyplace...

either way, i've noticed that this spoiler is quite heavy and my stock trunk shocks cannot fully support the trunk now... well, if the trunk is wide open - it stays up just find... unless a little wind comes by and then I get a ding in my head spineyes
