Give me your r33 kit and then paint it black, other than that looks good, hit me up when you want to sell the kit

It looks okay now, but it will be much better painted black without the wing.

I'd lose the vinyls and the spoiler.. Paint it a custom black like me! Mine's black with gold pearl..
I'd also lose that front bumper.. But that's just my opinion!

The Wing has been off for about 3 months now. (killing my gas mileage) and the vinals are gone as well....the kit is a result of a car accsedent so i wasnt really thinkin rims at the time, just somethin to replace the oem kit. I do not have altezza or even euro tail lights ( think there gay) but i will be getting carbon fibers im still torn on the color of the car though . you all have great ideas. keep um comin please.

the spoiler what aluminum ( about 13 lbs ) and ajustible. but the "perfect adjustment" was impossible. putting more drag on the rear of my car. ..it was great when going threw corners at about 110 keep me on the road even with out a suspention upgrade.. which by the way is INEVITABLE (sp) im thinkin maybe a 1.5" drop and the rims are also a definate im thinkin 18's Black or gunmetal. and after seein joski's car on another post..im leanin to Black. w/ a custom perl coat... but still i would like your opinions.

Hey ummm...the rear wing may help keep the rear planted at high speeds, especially if you feel the rear a bit unstable, but let me ask you this. Do you know that your car is FWD? Okay I hope you do, because it's pretty pointless to try to put more downforce on the rear of the car if all of your traction is most necessary up front. This will only make your car less driveable, and you'll get more slippage resulting in less power to the ground.

If you really want something to create downforce in the right places, get a carbon fiber or aluminum windsplitter for the bottom of your front bumper. They're pretty ugly, but at least they create actual downforce where you need it.

Those wings are more necessary on high power, high speed RWD cars, and in some applications AWD cars. They need the downforce on the rear of the car. If you really want a wing on your car, stick with OEM or similar. Purely aesthetic.
