    Yeah, why not. They'll be a nice accent.

    You have the GT wing so a Canard is a must!

    I have the G/R spoiler, splitter and canards. The canards are like your lady putting on that last piece of fine jewelry. "Sexy". They just give it that track car look.

    Re: Canards or Not?

    dissenting opinion here- I had a pair and sold them before install
    I wanted to like them but as I held them against my car they looked like a cheap, stick on after thought
    possible issue for me might have been that my car is Lava gray and they didn't provide contrast

    Canards or Not?

    I think it looks awesome on the GT or if you get proper fit.. I don't believe in 3M taped ones.. saw a dude here with cf canards it looked terrible because the canards didn't seat 100% on the bumper.. there was some space between the carnards and the bumper in some points.. on another hand it hurts to do definitive holes in the oem bumper
