Hey Ritter
Here is the lowdown on the wing.
I bought it about a year ago. It came primer...really light, about half the weight of the original one.
It was like it just came off the mold...meaning it was not smooth.
I took it to the body shop and they charged me $225 to paint the wing and to sand it down.
I had it set to the lowest position which is higher than the evo3 wing.
My top speed is limited to 126mph full trottle in 5th and going slightly downhill.
After that...i tried to remove the extension, so that it will be stock looking, and two of the 16 allen bolts that hold the extension was stuck...so i could not remove it.
I also pulled the whole wing off and one of the 4 bolts that hold the wing to the trunk was pushed in...so now i have only 3 bolts holding the wing in place.
Caution...because this is a fiberglass piece and looks flimsy...i guess if you get it, dont mess with any of the bolts.
Above all, i like it because you dont see them around, and it is cheap compared to the original evo3.
I dunno when i will be in Austin...i have been looking for a job there...with some of the high tech companies...so i may be down there sometime.
The bad thing is that my engine is dead, and i will be rebuilding it to a 2.5L spec.
I dont know how far you are from TWS, but next weekend, there will be a BMW club race, and my buddy...Jefrem will be racing his J-stock e30m3.
later
franklin
