    All "wingless," "spoilerless," removing rear spoiler or wing threads are combined here.


    Well I just got some 18" white rota sub-zeroes and took off the wing for a while. Tell me what you guys think.

    This might be the first time ever i mention this but...I actually think you should put a SMALL wing on it...*reminds himself he hates 99% of aftermarket wings*

    This is my favorite first-gen EVER... even better now with the white rims. But I actually liked it with the wing on there. I like the APR-GT wing myself. What about that Supra-style one?

    I'd put the massive park-bench spoiler back on.

    I would too, or at least take the wing perches off...
    stock spoiler wouldn't look too bad either

    for some reason the first pic looks a lot like a 5.0 to me...

    I love the new rims with the all around clean white look. I agree on stock turbo wing looking good, throw it back on and sell yours.

    Thanks for all the compliments and suggestions guys! I think I am probably gonna stick with the current wing for a while, but I took it off recently because there has been a lot of cop activity out here in Hawaii recently. Plus I already had the stock wing holes filled when the car was painted.

    Laters,

    I say pit the wing back on.

    I would probably do some painting on the wing to match the car and blent it in a little.

    In Hawaii we have this crappy law called "recon" where you need to get every modification approved and listed on a sheet of paper. They then give you a sticker similar to safety check. The wing does not pass and so if I get pulled over with the wing I get a $50 ticket for violation of recon. And the sticker is revocable. If they take it away you get to start the whole process all over. Its a major pain in the ass. And to get the sticker you need to get affidavits and an alignment within the past 30 days. So it ends up costing like $100 to get a new sticker plus the $50 ticket.

    :thumb: :dsm: DSM_Alpha the car looks totally sick, tight, sweet and I wish it was mine:laugh:

    Love the style with the wheels and the bodykit. I would NEVER put the wing on again. It looks IMHO cleaner and more exotic without the wing. Love the car man it is just too ridiculous sweet. It has style:thumb:
