Umm, that wing is behind your wheels. So in effect it pushes pressure on the trunk of the car, which uses the rear tire as a fulcrum, lifting the front tires up. Not to mention the weight distribution is worse.

At high speeds (only time they do anything) you're pulling your drive, and steering wheels up slowly.

If you like a big piece of metal on the back of your car, more power to you, but i'd rather make my car perform better for ~ $300 then that.

The factory style wing on a bonneville is a good choice bc it goes with the smoothness of the car! I like the ricer wings and all, but not on a B-ville. Don't look bad on your car though....need a lower stance to set it off though! The lower you go the better the wing looks and functions! I will have to get you some pics of the G-AM running around here for ideas! Keep up the good work...and don't let people tell you any different....its your car and your style man!

The wing is a bit out of place I think, but as a lot of other people have said, it'* your car. I know a lot of guys with wings, and I'm not a real big fan but they love 'em. More power to ya.

I must say though, change the color on the neons. The color scheme is straight killer, and not in a good way.

Keep the wing if you want it, It'* your car and it doesnt look all that bad. But I think most of the people wouldnt want that on there car, and personly neither would I. But its not all that bad looking

The point about grabbing attention with a wing is valid. I see a car with a two-story wing on it and it usually draws my attention. However, that being said, I'm not going to but a wing on 8-ball to get attention. Thats what 20 foot burnout patches are for.
