I haven't modded my car other than M Performance exhaust... but WTF! Not a fan of huge wings on the car but that's my opinion and whatever you like is what matters.

This will still depend largely on the course you're driving at. Higher speed courses will give you more trouble than lower speed courses so for example this would be a bigger concern at a place like Big Willow as opposed to Horse Thief.

Running the wing alone is worth a shot depending on where you're planning on going and how the car already feels relative to your driving preferences.

your car can fly now for sure. Diesel is green most everywhere in US

I don't know why people add crap to their car and come here crying if the forum members like the mod or not. fuck it is your car, your money, your time. Be content with your decision.

Looks awesome!!

At some point I'll get one for my car too and I have the same concerns regarding a front lip. Afraid it will break/fly off on the first speed bump... Although a lip would be needed for the best aerodynamic balance.

93 oct in the US equals 98 oct in Europe.

It's just a different norm. 91 oct in the US has the same "knock rating", as our 95 oct, 93 oct equals 98 oct.

The ethanol % contained in the fuel is also higher in the US, which is why our fuel is considered to be "better quality". May be important to know if dealing with engine tuning setups from the US. But I see you already have a s/c by G-Power
