I have been looking around for a full carbon fiber wing for my S14.. I finally found one that looks good, it's a single deck full carbon fiber wing for a reasonable price. The only thing is is I want to be sure it will look okay on my car.. I don't want it to be too insanely huge like go over the roof of my car or anything massive like that.. It's a single deck that sits 10" high and 52" long. Sounds okay to me but I thought y'all might have a better idea of how it might look.

Will this be a reasonable size? I know most of you will tell me it's a waste of money and any spoiler will look stupid but this is what I want and I think you all know the look I am going for..

Thanks a bunch!

10" high is a good height, but the width seems a little short. Take a tape measure to the back of your car and see if 52" is long enough.

If you're buying this mail order then make a cardboard mockup. A little cardboard and some masking tape, then you can "see" what it will look like on your car.

I have a 55" aluminum one, and it sits a couple of inches inside from the edges of my car (fastback). I think 52" is a little on the short side, but should be ok. The S14 is wider than an S13, right?
