Which wing?

I'm about to purchase a new wing and came across a couple I like. I'm going for a black/CF/white look - got a Carbon Fiber Hood, black rims, blacked out tails. I'm not sure if I should get the carbon wing or a wing with Carbon Fiber along the top and inserts on the sides with white sides. Here's links to the pics:

1. Carbon Fiber/white - Kaminari Race Wing- Carbon Fiber

2. Carbon Fiber - Veilside EC-1 Model Wing (Carbon)

I'm pretty sure I want the Kaminari one, but what do you guys think and do you know of any places where I could get the TRD one that's like #1 above for less than $600?

Thanks!

Kristin

Yeah, but I hear those don't usually line up with the factory mounting points for the stock spoiler. If not, I'm all about saving some $$$. Are there any downsides to getting a replica?

cool, I found a Kaminari kit on eBay just now (not including wing tho)...will be about $660 w/shipping. Not sure how much the paint job will cost me. Any ideas?
