Not the car, the wing lol. Its a real carbon fiber time attack (style) spoiler. my friend is selling her car and no one wants the wings so she offered it to me for lets say "an offer i couldn't refuse" lol

I'm 90% sure that is an APR GTC-??? just doesn't have the APR stickers on the side. If it is legit is about 85% off the price 949 sells it for. So am I an idiot for not getting? BTW i love how it looks lol

If it was "an offer you couldn't refuse", then how'd you refuse?

First reaction was you're an idiot if you put that on your car...




But.. It MIGHT actually DO something on a track... drive with that on the street, idiot.

It's a GTC-300. *way* too big for a Miata.

I'd rock it on a weekend/track car. A car that is built to utilize it? A car that sees track time or auto-x time? A car that can benefit from rear downforce, without suffering aerodynamic imbalance? A car that serves as a weekend car or a car with genuine sporty prowess? Yes. Think cars that have nearly gawdy, yet OH-SO useful aero parts, like Stradale Ferrari's, GTX Porsche's and special edition Lotuses. Cars that sport these, may not NEED them all the time, but will put them to good use when doing something as useless and frivolous as hitting back roads.

A car with like 50hp and a top speed of 90mph? A car that sees daily commutes and regular traffic hour use? A car that also sports 2 12's and more glow light than a neon sign? Civic's and Focuses put aerodynamic parts like this to shame. Dorifto cars that see no real competitive action, yet still sport torn up bumpers and bald tires, all the same, look gayfucktarded. No...

Like most other votes, I'd put it on another trunk and practice swapping the lids in 5 minutes or so. That way you can put it on when you need it. Then you can take it off to detract from the judging eye's and most importantly the FUZZ. Last thing you need is a wing on a miata that gets the popo's attention before your exhaust does.
