Maybe an RS wing or CUP WING and get a CUP front lip.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Next on my list is damn roll bar with harnesses, helmet, and most of all $$$$$ for track time...... the most important mod of all to become a better driver.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

But none of these new mods until current debt is paid
Well... There are stuff like a LW Ti Exhaust, RS LWFW, Li-on battery, Sunroof delete, suspension, etc.

But for that price I can buy a mkII RS

I really enjoy the fact that I can drive my cars on the weekend. I can maybe do 1-2 DE days a month and I miss driving my car.

Until I have enough budget for a SUV and Trailer to take my GT3 to the track and be able to do DE's 4 days a month I'm planning to keep mine street legal

Nice car. Eeerily similar to how my car turned out. Only differences..

- Have a SW bypass and kept OEM tips
- Have OZ superforgiatas
- Have an OEM RS wing. I think it looks better than the Cup wing tbh
- Cup lip.
- And my car is black. On black. On black.

I see you've had wing augmentation surgery. And factory half cage? Impressive. This car will need the extra downforce to improve handling on the slippery slope ... : )

@bmardini - You're car sounds like a beauty..... wait i mean a monster since its all black and sinister Don't get me wrong, I LOOOOVED my OEM RS WING, but I just wanted to change the look of my car and match my cup front lip spoiler to the matching year cup wing. Also, just getting the car track ready for next year and have fun!!!!!

@Adam: Hey bro, how are ya? Is that 4.0 of yours here yet?
Yeah, wing augmentation surgery....... lol

The RS wing found a new home/owner in the Brentwood/Oakley area

Sad it is gone, but at least the new owner can enjoy the benefits of the OEM RS wing mod.

This CUP wing is no joke, serious downforce and drag..... there goes my fuel consumption during daily driving on the freeways. LOL

Half cage is the GMG RSR. I wanted something close to the factory half cage and since i have the sunroof, this was the route i took.

Thats why I bought white, cause I'm soooo lazy to clean my car!!!!!!

I had a black BMW E30 M3 back in the early 90s....... sinister looking car in black, but was a PITA to keep clean. I vowed not to get another Dark car.

Black is the most menacing/sinister color though when clean, especially at night!!!!!!

..

Downforce yes, drag not really..
At the same AOA the higher placed cup wing has significantly less drag.

So level it a bit.


Car looks good.
