I think factory wing looks the best

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eb...765192&r=0&t=0

The LWT wing is too much. The DTM one looks gay if there is no other cosmetic mods done to the car.

just my $3.18

It all depends on what you're after.

The DTM wing is an unproven design, as opposed to the M3 LTW wing (knockoff or not...).

Personally, I'd take the M3 LTW wing, but that's because it's actually proven to work (and my car is dedicated as a track car).

I actually have one of the LTW wing's on order (though Heaven only knows when it will actually get here...).

On ANY 4-door though, wings are going to stand out quite a bit. If you're not planning on tracking your car much (or even at all...), then I'd suggest the factory wing / M3 low-rise wing (such as I have listed in the For sale section...).

The DTM wing is rather Ricey, in my opinion.

DTM wing is kinda ugly IMO..

I think you should go with the standard M3.

I say no wing at all! Vlad your car is tight! Don't mess it up buy puting a spoiler on it. Your car is clean and smooth!

P.S.: Hope she is back on the road soon!

Well to get rid of the stock blues do 18" or 19" wheels, window tint, and angel eyes. Do subtle things to set it off!

The M3 LTW is a true, dual element wing. The DTM wing is a single element wing, and is at best about 60-70% as effective as the M3 LTW wing.

The DTM wing IS adjustable, but the M3 LTW wing actually has downforce adjustments done using the front splitter, and not the wing itself.

i personnally like the stock M3 wing ,,its light and sharp,,


the DTM and LTW are all good, but i think that sick is looking for the asthethics not the funtion,,(am i right?) so it becomes a question of preferance not race proven stats....
