To wing or not to wing that is the question..

I'm kinda interested in the huge shopping cart wing that Saturn offers for our Redlines. Does it make any difference with downforce? I have the small spoiler lip like spoiler right now on mine. I want the wing because I want to attract more attention and have people pick on me but I want it to have some functionality with it. So the question stands, to wing or not to wing?

until you're going 140+, functionality is not part of the equation with this wing, even then, i doubt it really is. i've read on it shuddering at speed. basically, it's just for looks

i am unsure if I want to add it or not. Its just for looks but I dont like wings. But I like the fact it makes the redline easier to spot. What to do. . .

Eh.........

Personally, I like the trunk lid spoiler that mine has on it. I don't really care for really high wings. I like to look in my rearview and see more than just my cars spoiler.

That is a good call. I have the the rear wing. I do like it, mostly for the looks. It's annoying when you are trying to reverse or check out a hot chick behind you in traffic. I like trunk lid spoilers. I'm looking at buying a drag wing for my car, so I may sell the rear wing.

It's not functional & doesn't compare to my friend's corrodo's wing.

Wing

I purchased a Redline Ion a week ago and I just had to have a wing the one I purchased had a regular spoiler . So after waiting a week for someguy who works only on Thursday to install the unit I get it home only to have my kids tell me that they scracthed the paint to hell when they removed the double sided tape that is under the original spoiler and got buffing compound all over the decklid . That is only half the story after driving the car home I realized this thing although it looks cool is dangerous if you have to change lanes you have to double and triple take just to make sure you are clear to the right . Lastly this thing rattles and shakes not to mention makes the trunklid slam due to the weight . Needless to say I am not a happy guy . Thats the Bottomline ...

That's the one I want too. I like the low profile look of it. If I remeber correctly you had that installed at the dealer as a perk didn't you?

I made sure the RL I was buying didn't have one. they don't really function untill you are going about 150mph, and I really don't like the look of them. The little spoiler makes it more of a sleeper too.

I love my drifter's type wing. I'm not a huge fan of the large wings. Although I do have one on my MR2, but it came that way.

Feel free to take a look.

That's the one I want.

The wing cuts right in the middle of your field of vision, it's really annoying.

There were two Redlines left at the dealership. One with no spoiler, and one with a wing. I took the one with no spoiler. All I have to do is give them a call when I want to get the spoiler, and they'll sell it to me painted, at cost.

Yes I had it installed by the dealer along with the body kit.

I thought that having non-functional components on your car = RICER! At least that was my impression when people ripped on Hondas and such for having spoilers or whatever.
I've got the stock wing on mine now but would be much happier without it...as soon as I can find some one to remove it and not destroy the trunk in the process its gone.

i have the high wing and imho i love it.


i mean, if it comes factory thats not really rice is it?

who is gonna go out and call an sti or evo 8 wing ricey? some people, i guess...


i love the wing and yes it does obstruct rear view vision, but it also blocks out headlights.


i think it complements the car nicely, the only thing nicer than the wing, i think is the front end......i love that front end.

but anyway, thats my .02
