    Don't like any of them as they spoil the curves on a Gen1.

    I think the wings are a bit gaudy, but the GT wing is well-sculpted for the car, with its down-turned ends matching the fenders.

    as dave mentioned...the gen 1 doesn't need it. the body lines are already perfect so it better to leave it alone. what I always say...less is more.

    I have a GT style CF spoiler from GMG Racing. I prefer it over the shape without it. I wouldn't buy from them again as I am not 100% happy with the finish on the spoiler. Next time, I'd opt for the stock GT style spoiler. Hard to find OEM quality even when the aftermarket piece runs you $4k.

    You wouldn't be suggesting I remove it from my GT, would you?

    GT, it completes the car. I'm with you. I like the lines, but a little addition in the back makes me happy. Potato = Potato

    Not at all, on your car it is original and not an addition pretending to be a GT.
