    Re: Canards or Not?

    Agree with ezmaass. If the intent is cosmetic then it's really about whether you like it or not. If it's functional, then you have to question if they help or hurt. Without some kind of wind tunnel testing how do you know??? I am assuming that when Audi designed the car they did wind tunnel testing of all the R8 variants (V8, V10, Coupe, Spyder, GT, Competition, etc.) to ensure proper balance at speed. Any aftermarket add-on, who knows if it helps or hurts. Seat of the pants tests are easily fooled.

    Yeah, because you've got the wing and lip already.

    Did you get this R8 from Edmonton at Pure Executive Auto back when it was stock??

    I like the look they give but wouldn't fit them to mine.
