Stoptech BBK Or Mugen Rear Wing: What would you choose?

Hi guys,

My journey to work is on motorway, and as a result, don't think I am making best use out of the BBK. On that note, would you guys swap a BBK for a Mugen Rear Wing?

Discuss.

Nah, mugen wing for sure, the way I look at it is you do motorway driving so who sees under your bonnet etc etc whilst driving along??, but they would see the exterior and a nice looking car always turns heads which means

Any real car fan will notice the stoptechs especially when you are moving. Id have them over the wing but then i would get the seeker style lip and some 2nd hand brembos personally.

nail on head. the calipers look great when stationary. Just havent see it whilst car is in motion! i presume the red stoptechs would stand out like a sore thump whilst in motion?

i think you need to have a go in a car with a standard or uprated brakes now your use to stoptechs and decide from there.

Keep the brakes and save up for the wing if you really want it. I couldn't live without my stoptech's now, last couple of cars I've had I've fitted bbk's well worth the money.
