Default CARBON FIBER REAR DECK OR A CARBON FIBER WING...?

I'VE COMPILED A LIST OF THINGS I'D LIKE TO DO TO MY CAR (SLEEPING WITH HER DOESN'T COUNT). AMONG THE MANY THINGS, TWO OF THE ADDITIONS I'D LIKE TO MAKE ARE EITHER TO ADD A REAR CARBON FIBER WING, OR JUST A CARBON FIBER REAR HOOD DECK. WHICH IS THE BETTER OPTION OF THE TWO, OR IS IT POSSIBLE TO COMBINE THE TWO? ANY COMMENTS, FEEL FREE TO LET ME KNOW.

-BRIAN.

hmmm......<shaking head>

If you wish to be labled a ricer, go for the wing.

If you track your car and you're looking for some weight reduction, I think you'll save about 15 pounds or so. You'd be better off getting a carbon fiber hood first.

Keep in mind you drive an Audi, not a Honda and turn your Caps lock key off!

Deffinatly go with the carbon hood first thats were your car needs the reduced weight
I personaly think that while SOME wings look good on some cars audis are not one of them...
Yes you could have both the wing and the decklid if you really wanted to

Please stop yelling (turn off your caps).

Weight reduction (hood then trunk) maybe, otherwise don't do either.

Ok, first of all I don't know who makes a CF trunk lid, but I'm sure if some company did, you could put it on. Secondly of course you could get a CF wing. There are plenty of universal ones. And if these two statements are true, OF COURSE you could get both, that is assuming you don't have taste...

Haha thanks. But seriously, TH12NV it's your choice, the wing should be easy to find but I personally think it will look gross.

I've seen in a magazine, I think it was either Eurotuner or Modified, where this dude modified his car all roudy style and his wing looked real nice!!! And I do think I have taste...

Well then go for it and don't forget to post pics as soon as you get it done. Better yet - post pics of the install process.
